Athlos Leadership Academy – Premier is pleased to make available the txConnect parental portal, available in English and Spanish, that gives parents and guardians “read-only” Web access to their child’s grades and attendance directly from the teacher’s gradebook. Teachers have been asked to maintain accurate and current electronic gradebooks to help parents track their child’s progress at any time.
TxConnect has some very interesting features that can help parents keep on top of their child’s grades, attendance and school activities. Not only can a parent access their child’s information via the Web from home, work, or any place they have an Internet connection, they can also subscribe to email “Alerts” that can be sent directly to an email address each time one of your children receives a low grade on an assignment or his/her average falls below a level you have set. Notification “Alerts” can also be sent to you for unexcused absences or tardies. Absences will update five times daily and grades/assignments will automatically update each night.
Parents who actively use the parent portal last year, can use log in this year with the same username and password. We encourage parents to start practicing accessing the Parent Portal site.
Each student at Athlos Leadership Academy – Premier is held to the highest educational and disciplinary standards. Student-Parent Handbooks outline the policies and procedures pertaining to student activities and responsibilities as set forth by the Board of Trustees of the JAC, Inc. District.
All students receive a Student-Parent Handbook at the beginning of each school year, along with an Acknowledgement Form which both student and parent are expected to sign and return to the school.
These items have been made available in Adobe Acrobat (“PDF”) format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader, available free on Adobe’s website.
