Skipping school?

Students in School District 57 schools might think twice about it now that their parents have an electronic tool that allows them to track their kid's attendance.

The SD 57 Family Portal gives parents direct online access to school records on attendance, grades and other private information now available through the district's website - www.sd57.bc.ca and its link to the provincial site MyEducation BC.

MyEd BC is bound by the School Act and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act to protect student information. Access to student records through the Family Portal is only accessible through a secure password.

The new service went online on Tuesday and more than 10,000 accounts have been created in the district.

"It's been a while coming across the province but we have finally reached that point where we've issued invitations to parents to create their accounts," said SD 57 interim superintendent Rod Allen.

"It provides parents with up-to-the-minute access to what's going in in their child's learning."
