Schoolmax I encourage you to check schoolmax at least once a week so you can see the grades of your child in a weekly basis. It is a very good tool to see the progression of your child in each content area. It shows the completed work or the missing work the your child. Best way to prevent your child from falling behind is to know what they are missing and try to work on it before its too late.
