New Elementary Police Officer Program

Thanks to enhanced partnerships with our local police departments, there is a new model for drug abuse resistance education in Parkway elementary schools this year. Through the new Elementary School Liaison Officer initiative, important aspects of the fifth-grade D.A.R.E program have been re-focused and expanded to serve the needs of all students in grades K-5.*****
This program is being implemented in cooperation with the Ballwin, Chesterfield, Creve Coeur, Manchester, Maryland Heights, St. Louis County, and Town and Country Police Departments. At some schools, a police officer will be on site throughout the day, similar to school resource officers in the middle and high schools.
The primary goals of the school liaison officer program are:
  1. Enhance relationships among elementary students, the school community and local police officers through increased presence and visibility of a uniformed officer and regular contact with students and families. For example, police officers might have lunch with students, attend open houses and curriculum nights, and provide educational programs for parents.
  2. Improve core K-5 health curriculum, utilizing police liaison officers as subject matter experts in the classroom. Lessons will include topics such as bullying, stranger and internet safety, and the harmful effects of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs.
  3. Increase safety and security in the school community - School liaison officers will serve as members of the school crisis/safety teams; consult on crisis plans; participate in school safety drills; and serve as support during an emergency.
Parkway’s Board of Education will recognize representatives of each police department at its next meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 10 at Highcroft Ridge Elementary in Chesterfield.

Parents Will Have Online Access to Student Information

The Parkway Board of Education recently approved the purchase of Infinite Campus - a Web-based educational process management system. Infinite Campus will provide real-time information and data to staff, students and parents. They will have access to the information via a secure, password-protected online portal.*****
Parents and students will be able to access information including schedules, assignments, grades, attendance and test/assessment data. The portal includes a family calendar that displays all attendance and assignments for each student in the household. In addition, parents can access health information; special education information; behavior and discipline; and high school credits earned.
The district will immediately begin testing and implementation of the system, and the rollout to teachers and parents will begin in stages during the 2008-09 school year.
The district evaluated and performed a cost analysis on four similar data management systems. Staff surveys showed support for Infinite Campus, with the majority of employees responding that the system would save time, be easier to use, increase data-driven decisions and benefit student instruction.
