How We Are Keeping Parents Informed of DPI Learning Progress

This week the Instructional Technology Facilitators embedded in each DPI school in the Limestone County School District were asked by our IT Director and Digital Passport Initiative (DPI) visionary, Karen Tucker, to provide documentation regarding state curriculum evidence standards for technology.

Technology 5. Does the LEA implement the Tech Plan to ensure the effective use of technology to promote parental involvement and increase communication with parents?  

Technology 6. Does the Tech Plan include how the parent will be informed of the technology being applied in their child's education?   

I began collecting the information I have shared regarding what the 3rd and 4th grade teachers and students at Elkmont High School have accomplished thus far this year.  It was thrilling to take few moments to walk down memory lane and see all the progress we have made so far this year.  Below is the report I submitted.  

Please let me know how YOU keep your parents and community members informed of the amazing things happening in your classroom, school, and district.  I am always looking for new ideas on how to include parents in what we are learning with DPI.

Parents are kept up to date on all things DPI related through weekly blog posts, newsletters and the recently added Virtual Hallway.  Teachers make sure to include links to this information in their weekly parent newsletters that are sent home with students.  Parents can also follow our DPI learning via Twitter, FaceBook, or Google+ using the following hashtags:
