The Daily Herald of Arlington Heights, Ill., reports that about 6 to 10 percent of District 211 parents who register students for the 2005-06 school year are taking advantage of the new online registration option offered by the district. The majority of parents are still using older methods (walk-in and U.S. mail), but the new parent access software is steadily growing in popularity. The district plans to widen its online efforts beyond registration and is considering an online gradebook that parents could access.
