This month's tech topic is primarily for middle school families. At BTMES we use Infinite Campus to track attendance, grades and student data. Infinite Campus has a parent portal that you can use to see a live view of your student's progress which is available for grades 5-8. You can see grades as they are scored, attendance records, and assignments that are missing and much more. Click to learn more about the app and how to use it!
