Keeping track of your child's school records at home

By Crystal Price - bio | email

JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) - As students prepare to return back to school in Jeff Davis Parish, school officials want to remind parents of ways they can keep track of their child's school records on-line.

The J-PAMS (Principals Administrative Managing System) network allows parents to access their child's attendance, grades, conduct, and disciplinary track with the simple click of a mouse.

"It's the link between the school and the parents," said Kathy Mack, the J-PAMS coordinator for Jeff Davis Parish Schools. "We're not hiding anything and we want to let them know that this information is out there."

In addition to informing the parents of their child's performance, the program also allows administrators to send voice mails to parents and faculty through Student Messenger.

Through this program administrators can send out special alerts and track who did or not listen to the messages.

Leslie Giggar is a parent who has used the J-PAMS program for years and she feels it's a great way to stay connected to your child's education.

"My kids wouldn't always tell me their grades and one of them was tardy once," said Giggar. "With this program I knew before she got home that she was tardy and it never happened again."

For more information on how to get connected to J-PAMS, just go to your child's school to fill out a form.
