Please use Schoology and the Parent Portal to monitor your child's progress in school.  At Hutch Tech, it is safe to assume that your child receives homework and a variety of writing and research based labs and project assignments in every class on a regular basis.  Be sure to assist them with attendance and time management so that they do not fall behind in school.

Accessing Schoology will give you a clear idea of the assignments, due dates, and materials for each class.  Every teacher has a Schoology page.

Accessing the Parent Portal will inform you of your child's ATTENDANCE, GRADES, and any warnings of missing assignments.  You can set the portal to notify you on your cell phone if your child has been marked absent or when assignments are scored and grades entered.
