Infinite Campus News and Updates: 
Keep up to date on news for our district's Infinite Campus: 
A bunch of us are going to the Student Information Systems Conference 2019 later this month. We are ready to learn some new things!
How to Protect our Student Data - As staff, we are responsible for the student information we have access to. Please remember that we do not share data of a student with other students, parents or staff members who do not have access to this data. (such as behavior, safety, mental health, health, etc.) 
Also, when you leave your computer, please lock it and do not leave your password under your keyboard.
New School Year - We have already rolled CCHS into the 2019-2020 school year to get students scheduled for the next school year. Can you believe it?
Documents Upload - We are going to be sending out a document that highlights all the areas in Infinite Campus where documents can be loaded to a student and where certain documents need to be loaded. We recently began locking down the Person Docs tab in Infinite Campus that displays every document loaded into Infinite Campus due to the sensitivity of some of the documents attached to Safety and Mental Health Tabs. If you have questions about this, please let Elizabeth know.
