Student Progress Center Replaces STI
This year the St. Tammany Parish Public School System will change its online student information and grade reporting service to a new system called the "Student Progress Center". The switchover will be active after school begins. Parents will receive a letter during the second week of school detailing log on procedures and explaining the new system.
The “STI Student online reporting service” was closed down at the end of the last School Year.
The "Student Progress Center" will use JPAMS software, a product of Education Gear (EDGear). It is already used by 80 percent of Louisiana school systems. The student information management program will allow parents to access, over the internet, attendance, conduct, discipline, grades, detailed progress reports, and transcript history for the past three years.
All postings and changes will be reflected and accessible by the web in “real time.” In many cases the parent will know of test, attendance or discipline results before the student does.
The parent connectivity contains phone call, text messaging, and email components. Calls, texts, and emails will be delivered to the student's home. The system relies on the schools having current, updated home and cell phone numbers and email addresses, so parents and caregivers need to make certain the information on file is correct.
The Software Technology, Inc. (STI) grade reporting system was implemented in 2002 as the first internet-based technology to provide an effective and convenient means of communication between home and the school. Parents and guardians could access, via a password-protected log-in system, their childrens’ grades, attendance, class schedules and homework assignments.
