SLA’s website includes a portal that gives students access to many of the web-based communication and publication tools including SLATE and Canvas — our on-line course software, and GSuite tools. It enables teachers and students to create online spaces for each course, allowing them to communicate about assignments, school events, and more. Parents and guardians can check student assignments by emailing the child's advisor for login access. The School District of Philadelphia also has a parent portal for formal grades and progress on standardized testing. In addition, parents will receive frequent emails from the school via our parent list-serv. We will subscribe all requested email addresses the first week of school. If you do not receive the parent emails. Contact your child's advisor with any questions or concerns about the Portals.
