Parent Tech Academy Returning
Posted on 09/21/2021

GCISD’s Parent Technology Academy is returning for the 2021-2022 school year! The first session of the year will be held on Wednesday, September 29, at 6:30 p.m. on Webex. The session will include the unveiling of the new ClassLink Parent Portal which will give parents one-click access to resources such as Skyward, RevTrack, Lightspeed Internet Reporting and more.

No registration is required, and parents can join by simply visiting www.GCISD.net/ParentTech. Shortly before the session begins, this link will direct parents directly to the Webex session.

The Parent Technology Academy is a place where parents can come to learn about current trends in social media, online websites, and tools their students use each day at school. This Academy is a place to pull back the curtain on the many apps and websites that students use on a day-to-day basis in and out of school. Past sessions have included Top Apps Parents Need to Know, Social Media and College, Understanding Google Docs, Internet Safety, Minecraft for Parents, Fortnite For Parents, Device-Free Dinners and more.
