2017-2018 School Calendar
Venture Prep is happy to announce that we are using the Parent Portal through DPS which allows parents access to view your student’s progress at school. This gives you access to:
Grades & Assignments
Know which assignments your student turned in, check out their most recent grades posted, and review past grades with your student throughout the school year.
Attendance & Behavior
Make sure your student is in school to learn. Discuss any classes they have missed, see if they are getting to class on- time and get information on behavioral issues.
District & State Tests
Your student takes multiple tests throughout the school year. Find out how to understand these scores, see if your student meets grade level goals, and learn how you can help your student improve.
Schedule & Courses
Review your student’s schedule, be aware of their subject areas and what days and times your student should be attending classes.
Help improve your students academic progress with home based activities and exercises found in the new Parent Portal.
Visit the Parent Portal to get started today.
