Quincy Public Schools New Aspen Student Information System will debut for School Year 2013-2014 in September.  Quincy Public Schools is excited about moving to Aspen because of the numerous features that can greatly improve communications between schools, teachers, students and parents. The Aspen application features increase learning opportunities to reinforce 21st Century Learning Skills. These components will provide a positive impact on the day-to-day operations within Quincy Public Schools. These components include:

  • Student / Parent Portal ~ allowing students’ and parents to monitor their progress by viewing student progress and/or interim reports, report cards, schedules and course requests, student attendance, discipline issues, assignments and test results.
  • Electronic GradeBook ~ Assignments in a GradeBook can contain links to internet resources and the curriculum. Through the portal students can complete a survey or even a quiz that automatically transfer to the teacher GradeBook.
  • Curriculum and Learning ~ Online curriculum management will allow QPS to effectively distribute curriculum maps and related content to teachers within the district. This curriculum mapping can then be shared with parents via the Portal linked to assignments, tests or even chapters in a textbook.

Quincy Public Schools Information Technology Team will continue to provide progress updates of the implementation of Aspen throughout the coming year.  If you should have any questions or need additional information, please feel free and call Keith Segalla, Executive Director Career & Technical Education and Instructional Technology at (617) 984-8731.
