We now offer parents the ability to log into Catforms Records and view community, school, and school year information, as well as class, attendance, and conduct records for their own schoolchildren.
Here's how it works: Person and family information must be current in Our Community for the parents who wish to have an account. The Community Admin sets up a user account for the parent who requests one and connects that user account to the person as they would for any other user account.
For that new person to have access to a patron role, they need to be identified as a husband or wife in a community family, and there need to be children in that family that are enrolled in a school year of a school in the community.
For an example using the fictional Rocky Ridge School, go to CatformsRecords.com and log in as maria, with the password 123Rocky. Under Our Community, click on Families. About halfway down the list of families, you should see Jerry and Maria Martin, with a list of children in the first tab on the right. Four of those children are enrolled in the Rocky Ridge School for the 2019-2020 school year.
Click on My Children, then My Schoolchildren. Those four children are listed, with tabs for their classes, class scores, attendance, conduct, and any curriculum materials issued to them.
Note: Patron accounts are read-only and report cards are not available for download when logged in as a patron.

Twenty-five years, coming right up!In 1993, a lazy teacher by the name of Allen Troyer — that would be me — thought there had to be a better way of processing achievement tests than by scoring everything by hand, manually looking up percentile and grade equivalent scores in the backs of the Examiner's Manual, and writing everything down. I was [...]
