New system will help parents, teachers track student performance

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

New technology tested in the Lubbock Independent School District will now be used statewide to help parents and teachers monitor student performance.

The Texas Commissioner of Education came to Lubbock on Wednesday to unveil the system.

It basically keeps student information all in one place.

They're called "StudentGPS Dashboards" and Lubbock ISD started implementing the technology three years ago.

Educators are calling it a "one stop shop" because it does away with reports from multiple systems. Now, everything you need to know about a student or a class can be found in one place.

With just a few clicks, educators will have access to student grades, assessment scores, attendance records, and whether or not students are improving or falling behind in the classroom.

Teachers say most everything they need is now in one place. It's convenient, but is it too convenient? Texas Education Commissioner Michael Williams said privacy is not a concern. 

"Researchers will not have student level data information. They will have information regarding how a campus as a whole is performing, but they won't know how the kid in the third row himself is performing," Williams said.
