|Is Schoolloop's Grade Dashboard stressing kids and teachers out?|
I would like to hear other's thoughts on this topic.
HMBHS is now using Schoolloop's Grade Dashboard to show an up to date grade for your kid's classes. It's great in theory but the reality is that the teachers hardly have time to keep it updated. What happens then is that parents see a bad grade, punish or put kids on restriction, hire tutors (at $50/hour) and generally worry. Then a bewildered teen stresses about a grade that's posted that could very well be updated but not posted.
It puts pressure on our teachers to provide "up to the minute" grades. Yes, it's easy to email a teacher to find out where your child is exactly but those hours between when you send the email and when they respond can keep a household up at night. Maybe it would be better to just take the dashboard off and go back to basic one on one communication between students, teachers and schools?
Anyone with experiences or opinions?
