dc.description.abstract Earth Science is the most basic science class offered at Franklin Central High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. Most of the students who receive failing grades also seem to have a poor record of turning in assignments. This research will be a study of the use of an on-line parent notification system provided by the software programs included within the services of Infinite Campus©. This system allows parents to access their students’ grades on-line as well as to monitor progress. This project will contribute to the literature on parent-teacher communication at the high school level and the use of technology to improve student success.
