Infinite Campus News and Updates: 
      Keep up to date on news for our district's Infinite Campus:
Issue with Logoff Resolved- There was an issue reported with Infinite campus and Google logoff. In Infinite Campus, when a user was logging out of the system it also logged them out of Google. Also, when staff were in Infinite Campus for a period of time, Infinite Campus automatically log them out after a period of time and this also logged them out of Google. There was a support ticket on this and it seems to have been resolved. Please enter a work order if you are still seeing this issue.
 - Turn on the NEW Beta Students App in Instruction (click here to see how to turn on inside Campus Instruction 
The Students app allows teachers to efficiently view and modify data for specific students within their classes. Students can be easily searched for and once selected, all tools within the app are specific to that student's records.
