SRCS is introducing Infinite Campus, a new student information system. Infinite Campus offers a Parent Portal, which gives up-to-date, secure online access to student information. The Parent Portal is currently open to parents/guardians with children is grades 6-12. The week of Sept. 29, each parent/guardian will receive a letter with a secure Activation Key that is unique to each parent/guardian to set-up their own account.
The transition to Infinite Campus is a key part of our efforts to enhance communication, transparency and the integration of technology tools that promise greater effectiveness and engagement for parents, students and staff. As with any change, we are all learning how to use this new tool. We are monitoring this implementation closely so that we can provide additional support and training as needed.
