ACADEMIC PROGRAM

Canvas

Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS). This means our teachers load their content onto Canvas. Students log in to read articles, access assignments, take quizzes, access their Google accounts, etc. Our teachers also keep daily grades in the Canvas gradebook.


Canvas is used by all of our high schools and many universities across the nation. Anyone who takes classes at NKU knows that Canvas is the chosen LMS at the university. The system allows your student's work and your teachers' academic programming to be transparent.

BEHAVIOR and WORK SKILLS PROGRAM

BehaviorFlip

We are replacing Kickboard with BehaviorFlip this year. BehaviorFlip was created by school administrators with a passion for proactive behavior management. We love that. BehaviorFlip allows students, teachers, administrators, and parents to see behavior concerns or celebrations and resolutions in real time so you can always be aware of how your child is adapting at school and in classes.


Parents should check their email for a login invitation from BehaviorFlip. Create your account. When the year starts, we'll create tutorial videos to show you how the program works and what to be looking for. You can also set up notifications so you are alerted when your child is struggling.

REPORT CARDS and ATTENDANCE

Infinite Campus Parent Portal

Infinite Campus is our student database for the state of Kentucky. All Kentucky schools use Infinite Campus to maintain student records, take and keep accurate attendance, and house student final grades.


You can obtain access to your student's account in person only (as a means of protecting your child's sensitive information from someone who should not have it). Stop by the office, bring your ID, pick up a Parent Portal login from Jill Stinson.


We will mail home report cards at the end of each quarter. This mailing will also include a BehaviorFlip report and any IEP or gifted service progress reports that are applicable for your child.
