Rediker Software, a leader in school administrative software, announced today the launch of PlusPortals, a family of secure web portals for parents, students and teachers respectively named ParentPlus, StudentPlus and TeacherPlus. The new PlusPortals seamlessly integrate with the company’s student information system, Administrator’s Plus, and teacher gradebook, TeacherPlus Gradebook. As a result, school administrators and teachers can instantly share out grades, attendance, discipline, schedules, billing and more, to parents and students without having to upload or sync data.

“We are extremely excited about the release of PlusPortals and the benefits they bring to our schools,” said president of Rediker Software Andrew Anderlonis. “PlusPortals offer our schools a family of affordable and easy-to-use school web portals with a user-friendly design. We have already received such positive feedback from schools that have implemented the portals. Parents especially love using ParentPlus.”

To ensure a pleasant online user experience, Rediker Software utilized the latest HTML5 web technology to design ParentPlus, StudentPlus and TeacherPlus. Parents, students and teachers can log into the portals directly from the school’s website and parents only need one login to access data on all of their children. Portals can even be branded to match the school’s website to create a smooth user experience. Data is presented in real-time with interactive dashboards to display student grades and progress.

“In designing PlusPortals, we thought about not just what schools would want today but what they would want and expect to have in five years down the road as well,” said Anderlonis. “It was important for us to create a portal that was easy for schools to use and yet at the same time provide an impressive user experience regarding design and features. HTML5 provided us with this flexibility and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.”

Other PlusPortals features include personalized combined calendars, class pages, school announcements and alerts, email and messaging capability, electronic portfolios, online course requests, a school directory, school surveys, homework assignments and homework submittal.

In the future, Rediker Software plans to add a seamless connection to its Online Forms portal, mobile apps for parents, students and teachershg, as well as a more comprehensive online interactive classroom with class discussions, online quizzes and automatic grading.

PlusPortals are 100% compatible for the Mac and PC and can be accessed on any computer with an Internet connection. Schools can contact a Rediker Software Account Representative for more information.
