How do I help my student succeed in an online class?

Julia Kaziewicz Collier

Parents should make sure their student attends class and turns in all required work on time. Instant access to upcoming course assignments and grades is provided through Genius, our student information system. Simply click on a student’s course name in Genius and you will be logged in to the Blackboard course site. Parents should plan to log in weekly to check on student progress and to monitor the current grade in each course.

Parents can schedule one-on-one conferences with instructors at any time during the academic year to discuss student performance. Please email your instructor to schedule a meeting.
