Problems with Aspen online student access system last week

The technology discussion is scheduled just one week after problems were reported with the school district's Aspen online student access system, launched at the end of this summer. 

Ridge High School Principal Drew Krause reported last Monday that the school had received reports that students and parents had encountered some difficulties with accessing marking period reports through Aspen. He said at that time that access was being temporarily removed while information technology personnel were working on solving problems. 

Schools Superintendent Nick Markarian reported on Wednesday afternoon that online access issues apparently were resolved with the Aspen system, which had earlier in the week caused difficulties for Ridge  students seeking to check their report cards and grade point averages for the first marking period.

"I think we are all good at this point," Markarian said in an email on Wednesday. Markarian did not specify which schools had been affected, but reportedly not all had the same problems.

However, online parent comments indicated there were lingering problems following the superintendent's assessment.
