Deadeline for Sept 2010 - online parental reporting. Where are you up to? Can I buy shares in Crapita? They must be making a fortune out of the 20,000 schools and colleges in the country. I've just been quoted nearly £10K to put an online reporting system in place at my college, linked to sims. All this will do is provide a log-in for parents to see attendance records, a few general progress grades and a couple of comments. Isn't this a waste of money? We have a very effective monitoring ststem for attendance and parents are infromed of progressand potential issues half termly now. Balls - stop wasting taxpayers money!! (More importantly, stop generating new initiatives that are silly, time-wasting and duplicating stuff we already do). This money should be used to e.g. buy some duckhouses or a few extra flats for MPs.
