Infinite Campus - Student Information System MMSD New Teachers Infinite Campus Information Welcome! Have a terrific year.
Use of grade-level appropriate Infinite Campus teacher tools "The goal of asking teachers to use grade level appropriate Infinite Campus teacher tools is to provide regular, timely communication to students and families. Providing communication in a timely manner will ensure that students and families are aware of assignment expectations as they are occurring and before students fall behind. For middle and high school teachers, this means entering assignments when they are given to students so that the portal indicates what has been assigned with corresponding due dates. Weekly entry of assignment and test scores will make certain that students and families have access to current student progress."
