Putnam City parents now can go online to check their children’s grades, attendance and more.
Among its bells and whistles, ParentCONNECT allows parents to check on a child’s assignments, receive an e-mail if he or she misses class or fails to turn in homework.
The service is free. It is password-protected and linked only to a parent’s child.
Going back to a conversation we had last week here on The Oklahoman’s eighth floor, getting your child’s whereabouts (or when he or she isn’t in class) beat implanting a microchip in the skin. Leave that for pets.
I like the idea of being able to check assignments, homework, etc., but the real draw to me of this service is the e-mails if a child skips class or doesn’t turn in something.

“We don’t expect or even want ParentCONNECT to take the place parent-teacher conferences, phone calls or any kind of interaction that takes place now between parents and school staff. We see ParentCONNECT as an added tool to make sure there is the strong school-to-home connection that helps students succeed,” Superintendent Jim Capps said in a press release.
