Infinite Campus will get Chartiers Valley up to date

| Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014, 9:48 p.m.

Students and parents in the Chartiers Valley School District will see a new online student information program soon.

The district will phase out the old programs, eSchoolbooks and GradeQuick, which teachers, parents and students use to track grades, attendance and schedule, and implement the Infinite Campus program in its place.

Technology director Scott Kelly said an insert will be included in students' report cards explaining to parents the registration process for the new program. Report cards are scheduled to go out the week of Jan. 27.

District communications director Kara Droney said parents will be able pre-register with the information portal once they receive their unique identification numbers, which will also be sent out. Information, including grades, attendance and assignments, will not be available until February, when the transition from one program to another is complete.

The district also will include a phone number for a help line for the program. The help line will be available from Jan. 27 to Feb. 7 at 412-429-2240.

District audit

Representatives from Cypher and Cypher attended the Jan. 14 school board meeting to give a presentation on the district's audit.

The audit looked at the district's finances from July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013. District finance director Nicholas Morelli said the audit found no discrepancies or red flags in the finances and that the district is in good financial standing.

State code requires that school districts conduct an audit annually. Audits are conducted by accountants, who examine and check the district's financial records.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
