Title I Parent Center
The Title I Program has a parent involvement partnership at Mary McLeod Bethune Middle School. Parent involvement is crucial because it helps our children perform better in school. To enhance our partnership with the parents at our school, a Title I Parent Center has been created (also known as the Lion’s Den Parent Center). It is a place where parents , grandparents, and other family members can feel welcome with internet access on computers, check out materials for working with their children, and gain advice or ideas to help their children with their school work.
 
Come visit the Lion’s Den Parent Center Monday – Friday (9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.), located in room #607.
 
Need a quiet space to work? 
Parent Resource Center Study Hall - Tuesdays and Wednesdays, room #607
Internet, Chromebooks. printers, books, and various school supplies will be availble for parents/guardians to use during Study Hall.

INFINITE CAMPUS

What is the Infinite Campus Portal?

Campus Portal is our tool for parents and students to access instant, online, timely and secure student information: class schedule, assignments, attendance, discipline, course registrations for next year, report cards and transcripts.

 

Campus Portal is a means to further promote educational excellence by enhancing our program of communication with parents and students.

 

Who is eligible to have a Campus Portal account?

Parents of current students are eligible to activate a Parent Portal account, after agreeing to the terms and conditions of use.

 

How much does the Campus Portal cost?

Nothing. It is a free service to parents, and actually saves the district money by reducing paperwork and labor costs.
