dc.description.abstract Many would agree that communication between the school and home is crucial to a child’s success. It is through these exchanges of information that most parents find out about programs, nighttime activities, school events and functions and their child’s progress concerning grades and development. The question is, if communication is so important, then why do most school use the most expensive, labor intensive and untimely manner to contact student families? If a typical school year is thirty-six weeks long and the first progress report goes out at week nine, then the student could have been potentially failing 25% of the course material before the family is even made aware of their child’s poor academic standing. Depending on the material being taught, some would say that it would be too late for the child to remediate their grade. There are faster, less expensive modes for reaching out to parents, such as the Easy Grade Pro (EGP) software, which serves students, parents, teachers and administrators by increasing communication between parents and the school, primarily through daily or weekly e-mail. This plan considers whether through the sending of frequent e-report cards, there will be an increase in parental satisfaction with communication levels. en_US
