I hope that you all got your log in information for Educate and had a chance to look around. One of the strengths of the new portal, Empower, is the ability for you to communicate directly with your child’s teachers. Here are the instructions on how to send a teacher a message in Empower.
Once you have logged into Educate then you click on the Note icon shown below.
Once you click on the +Note icon a text box will appear that says “Type your note here…”.
After you type your note you should click in the box that says “Send to…”. Start typing the name of your child’s teacher(s) and the name will come up. Click on it and the name will stay in the box. Once you have entered the names click “Post Comment.” The comment will then show up on your personal wall (Only seen by you and your child) and the teachers wall. This is a message between the tow of you so it is not seen by others.
I hope that this has helped you learn how to post a note. Don’t forget that if you want to have a live tutorial on how to move around Empower, we will be running two sessions Monday evening at 5:30 and 6:15. Each tutorial will start with a demonstration and then you will be able to use our lab to access your child’s information. Please bring your log in id and password.
