It is with great excitement that we share that the district has implemented a new parent communication system to replace CityWatch. Beginning this school year, the Olathe School District and its schools will utilize Blackboard ParentLink. This will allow the district and its schools to quickly communicate with all parents on a variety of issues. In the event of an emergency, school closing, early dismissal, or school delay, or even notification of events that may impact you or your child(ren), we will be able to send an automated voice message, e-mail, and/or SMS text message to all parents within minutes. This automated technology will allow us to keep you well informed of any important school events by using telephone numbers and email addresses provided by you.
The Blackboard system is connected to the district’s student information system. If you would like to update your email or phone number, or if the other parent would also like to receive this information, contact your oldest child’s school so we can update our records. We are excited about the opportunities this new and efficient system will provide the district as we strive to continuously improve our communication efforts for our families.
The Olathe Public School District has made a change that you will see in your child’s weekly schedule for the 2016-17 school year. Last school year, during specials time (art, music, PE, technology, etc.), the specials rotation included a designated time for guidance lessons. For this year, guidance lessons will be incorporated as part of the school day every other week, but it will no longer be a part of the specials rotation. Instead, students will receive additional time dedicated to technology. This will increase formal technology instruction from 30 minutes to 60 minutes per week. As a system, we are excited for this change because it will allow increased access to technology, additional learning opportunities about digital citizenship, and will allow us to implement curriculum related to coding.
