The Top 10 Support Answers for November… and more CR News
New! Mobile access with CR Family- Release event at Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference
Join us at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester NH, November 29 through December 1, for the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference. We’ll be featuring our new CR Family Mobile App. This app provides secure, self-service, mobile access so families can monitor a student’s daily activities at school, from attendance to homework, from discipline to grades.
Research shows that parents serve in a vital role in instilling good study habits, curbing behavioral issues, and guiding students toward academic success. Learn how CR Family keeps them involved.
Christa McAuliffe was New Hampshire’s “teacher in space,” who died in the Challenger shuttle launch on January 28th, 1986. In Christa’s memory and in keeping with her spirit, the CMTC highlights the sharing of successful technology practices among educators. The conference serves as a forum for exchanging technology-based success stories, integration tips, instructional strategies, technical solutions, and management techniques for the learning environment.
