Port Chester parents can now register for online access to their children’s attendance records, report cards and class schedules via the school system’s home page. The information system, eSchoolPLUS Home Access Center, is still being set up. The information should go live by the next marking period in late January or early February, school board President Jim Taylor said.
“It will definitely be a lot more convenient for a parent, at midnight or whatever, to log on and get up to date,” Taylor said. “In my mind, it just brings us into the 21st Century, where people don’t work 9 to 5, and they need to find different ways to get information.”
