We are asking all parents to complete a parent survey either online, cordley.usd497.org or by paper pencil. For completion of the survey, you child will receive 5 CARE tickets when they return the completed survey as a demonstration of Responsibility! If you completed the online survey, please have your child let his/her teacher know so they can receive their tickets as well. We thank you for taking the time to share your feedback!
As part of the school board's Engagement goal, we're excited to introduce new district and school websites. No more squinting, pinching or pulling! Our new district and school websites feature a responsive design, scalable to various mobile devices. Let us know what you think of our new websites by emailing our online Suggestion Box.
In the coming months, we'll be rolling out several new engaging features including parent registration, content social settings, content alerts, a customizable dashboard and planner, and a mobile app. First, we'd like to introduce you to our Customizable Calendar!
Customizing Your Calendar View
The Schoolwires Calendar enables parents to customize their calendar view by combining multiple calendars from the district website, school websites and/or teacher websites, and filtering specific color-coded event categories, to a single calendar. This may be especially helpful to parents who may have children attending different schools. Instead of navigating from calendar to calendar or printing multiple calendars, you may customize your calendar view.
Follow the instructions below and/or watch this video tutorial to learn about Customizing Your Calendar View. (Please Note: Our district will introduce website registration at a later date, so no need to use the 'Sign In' button at this time.)
To subscribe to multiple calendars:
1. Click on Customize Calendar View in the top left-hand corner of any calendar. Calendar & Category options display.
2. Click the pencil icon next to Calendars. The 'add/remove' button displays.
