Jeffco parents concerned about student tracking
GOLDEN — Parents of students in Jefferson County public schools are worried about a new system to track student information.
A pilot program funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Carnegie Corp. is trying to combine information from student records that would allow teachers to get a big picture on progress being made by their students. The plan is to allow teachers to find out all they need to know to track students, including their performance.
According to the Denver Post, parents are worried it would put too much information in one place that could compromise security.
