AISD's Parenting University
Mark your calendars and plan to attend Aledo ISD's second Parenting Univeristy event on March 5. Scott Kessel, AISD Director of Student Services, will lead a session on College Planning, while April Riley, Instructional Technology Specialist, will present tips for raising "screenagers." Both sessions will be presented twice, once at 8:30am and again at 9:10am, followed by an open Question and Answer session. If you wish to submit questions prior to the event, please post them on the Parenting University Q & A webpage.

Aledo ISD Goes Google
Aledo ISD Goes Google
Aledo ISD is partnering with Google Apps for Education (GAFE), a FREE suite of secure tools. Through the implementation of Google Apps for Education and in compliance with Aledo ISD’s Acceptable Use Procedures, students will have ongoing opportunities to submit and receive assignments electronically, collaborate on group projects in real-time from any internet connected device, as well as build an electronic portfolio of their school learning experiences. Read the Parent Information Flyer that went home in the first six weeks report cards here.
Visit the Frequently Asked Questions webpage for Parents.
If you have concerns about your child's GAFE account, please complete this form.
Know the Lingo
Do you feel like your children are speaking a foreign language? More importantly, do you know what all of the apps are for on their phone or tablet?
Take a look at this Digital Glossary from Common Sense Media to see how many new words you can learn! It will also help you better understand the lingo of today's digital-aged children, as well as have a better understanding behind the various apps your child uses with his/her friends.
School Fusion Parent Accounts
Create a School Fusion Account
Aledo ISD uses School Fusion to host district and campus websites. Anyone can view classroom, campus, and district webpages without an account. However, there are many benefits to having a School Fusion parent account such as receiving email notifications when teachers and administrators post announcements on their webpages. To learn how to create a School Fusion account, watch this quick tutorial video and then complete the required information on the Registration Form.
(NOTE: You will need your student's date of birth and six digit student ID number in order to create an account.)
Find out more about School Fusion parent accounts, as well as other important Aledo ISD accounts on the Parents Need to Know webpage.
