When you log in to your Parent Desk, you will have links to contact the school, and links to view all of your child’s courses. You can read all interactions between your student and each of the teachers. You can see all of the course content and assignments for the course. This will allow you and your child to preview future assignments and plan ahead. Click around. Don’t be shy. You won’t ruin anything.
Below is an example of the Parent Desk for Brilliant Student (fictitious student). The Parent’s Contacts section has links to contact the school. All of the other sections are links for you to monitor your child’s school work and progress. Each section is reviewed in detail in your Parent Orientation, so you can always refer back to it if you need a quick refresher.
Once your child has completed the New Student Orientation, when they log in, they will automatically open their Student Desk. Below is an example of Brilliant’s Student Desk. **Notice that Brilliant has been scheduled for three courses. This is the normal workload for Whitmore students.
My Courses In Progress
This is the place your child will go to every day. Here, they will find the list of your child’s current courses with a link to open them. Do you see the word NEW after Spanish 1? That means their teacher has replied to their post and is asking for revisions. In English 9 and Geometry, Brilliant is ready to work on a new lesson. Encourage your child to work in each course 4-5 days a week. This will result in progress and a feeling of accomplishment.
Here are links for your child to contact school administrators with questions or to make a request for documents. Your child will be in regular communication with their Guidance Counselor regarding course selection and working toward graduation.

The Message Board has links to read Whitmore Blogs, Student Shout Outs, School Announcements and Whitmore NAU, the student-written school newsletter. You are welcome to check it out too!
