The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board has launched a new website specifically for parents. The new website was designed to bring together a number of resources and systems that parents need, all in one place.
With the expansion of 'Virtual Learning' this year, the new parent site contains explanations of how virtual learning works in both elementary and secondary as well as a new "Tech Help" area for accessing these systems. Parents can also find tips on supporting virtual learning at home and a video series on different technologies.
The site homepage includes quick links to common school resources such as School Messenger (absence reporting), the Parent Portal, School Cash Online, Busing and more. It also contains an A-Z index of all HWCDSB resources to help guide parents to the programs they need.
To view the new parent website, you can click "HWCDSB Parent Website" at the top of any school website or the HWCDSB board website. You can also visit it directly at:https://parents.hwcdsb.ca/
