Harker continues to go electronic, moving away from paper in a number of ways. Besides making Harker News Online our primary news channel, the Harker Parent Portal (HPP) was streamlined for easier use this year. Of equal interest are the ways Harker’s technology department is helping students and parents work easier and faster. Parents in all divisions can already view student course, section and activity times for the current grading period via the HPP and, as of January 2010, monthly statements will arrive by e-mail. In addition, registration for lower school students in the BEST after-school program starts Jan. 4 and online registration is slated for middle school students in the fourth quarter. Finally, the lower school campus is rolling out a wireless network. Coverage will initially include areas where teacher gather for training and the library.
