Garfield Schools Go Green:
Garfield Schools is promoting "Going Green" by utilizing Parent Portal for all grades, progress reports and report cards. Our new Parent Portal system allows parents to view their child's academic history via the Internet. Parents were given their username and password to access their child's portal. Not only is Parent Portal good for the environment but allows parents to have constant feedback with how their child is doing in school. Let us know what you think about using Parent Portal to access report cards.
