K-5 Konnect draws positive reviews so far

By on November 6, 2010

KANELAND—At the beginning of this school year, Kaneland School District implemented its online parent portal, Konnect, for grades K-5. At the Oct. 25 School Board meeting, board members received an update on the new initiative.

Konnect is a way to provide a range of information, such as PTO news and classroom newsletters, paperlessly that would usually be sent home with students.

“On the first night, we had 12 e-mails with positive comments regarding Konnect,” said Tim Wolf, Director of Technology.

In the future, Wolf also plans to implement enhanced communication services, as well as the ability for students to be able to access learning materials from anywhere.

Wolf stressed that K-5 Konnect is at its first stage, and he plans on improving the system even more.
