Parents want their children to find happiness and success in life. One factor which influences happiness and success is career choice. Parents as Career Coaches emphasizes the importance of helping your children discover what their passions/interests are.  It will assist your children to identify occupations which might help them pursue their passions.

FAQs

Is the program only for parents?

No, other adults in a child's life can take on the role of coach.  The role could be filled by foster parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or others, who have close contact with the child.

What is the best time to begin helping my child with the career journey?

While it is never too late, there are great advantages in beginning to work with your child as soon as possible. In fact, we strongly encourage parents of grade 10 students to attend to allow more time for you and your child to review various career options.  The goal of starting as early as possible is to ensure that your child will make the best decisions in terms of course selection, education and training and career goals.  

Should I attend if my child already states he/she has a career goal?

Yes, it is just as important to attend a session when your child has a career goal. Parents as Career Coaches will provide both you and your child with the information you need to carefully examine the career goal and to ensure that it is the best choice for your child. Then you can support your child in planning the next steps toward that career goal.

Student-Parent Portal!

We’ve Enhanced the Student-Parent Portal! 

 

Student achievement information is now presented with a greater emphasis on the individual assessments and course outcomes for the entire course.  An improved user experience is now in place for parents and students to view information related to assessments and outcomes.  Information on attendance, late work, missing work, and achievement are all available to encourage ongoing communication and the improvement of student achievement.
 
A User Guide is available for students and parents which outlines the functionality in the portal.  Videos are also available on the iNSchool website to demonstrate specific features within the portal.  Go to the iNSchool website to access this user guide and videos - http://inschool.ednet.ns.ca/portal.
 

 

Teachers record student information electronically in a program called “PowerTeacher Gradebook”.   Currently, teachers are at various stages of implementation using their Gradebook as they continue to learn all of its functionality.   As they are learning, you may notice differences in the level of usage of Gradebook between teachers.  This amount of usage will be reflected in the amount of information available in the Student-Parent Portal.  You may have a child whose teacher is making maximum use of the technology; but you may have another child whose teacher is continuing his/her learning experience with the new software.  It is important to be patient.  Teachers may continue to record student marks and other information on paper for some time.
 
Please contact your child’s school if you would like to set up a Parent Portal account.
