● ADVENTIST SCHOOL CONNECT (ASC) WEBINAR, OCT 15, AT 7 PM ET, for all Adventist Schools — Lindsay Peterson will present “Five Easy Steps to Create Your School’s Website With Adventist School Connect.” The Webinar will teach what is needed to get a FREE school website launched. ASC users will have the opportunity to ask questions and get insight into how their current website can be enhanced.
ASC provides FREE websites to all Adventist schools. Two important features have been incorporated: Parents can access grades, attendance, and service and mission work records if the school is using a Hunter product; ASC also provides an interface for Small School Minder which allows teachers to track attendance, assignments, and grade reports online. Starting in January parents will be able to pay school bills online.
