Crist Counselor Corner

We are fast approaching the end of this school year; only 65 school days remaining!

I am confident that when your child entered into ICA’s self-paced instruction, you did not realize how intricately involved your child’s education was on a regular basis.

I will be evaluating each student’s progress and will likely be contacting the student and the parent if the student is not keeping pace!

It is really easy for parents to monitor their child’s progress:

Simply log on to your child’s Edmentum account; if you do not know how, ask your child or contact your child’s teacher.

As you can easily see, this shows courses which are:

Ahead of Pace indicated by a green bar plus a green man running forward.

Off Pace indicated by a red bar plus a red man running backward.

Slightly off pace indicated by an orange bar plus a man standing still.

Finally, you can connect with your child’s me for a personal update; 760-515-3933.
