Illuminate Help for Parents

Welcome to the Illuminate Parent Help Page.

Dear Parents/Guardians,
You might be wondering why PGUSD has decided to move to Illuminate Education as our official student data management system? The short answer: To better promote and support student and educator success in our school district. We believe that our partnership with Illuminate will facilitate our ability to reach this goal.

A key to understanding what each student needs in order to be successful is the ability to identify areas of growth and areas that may need improvement. Being able to review and make sense of that data is essential. Whether considering results on state or local assessments, end of course exams, or behavior and social emotional indicators, Illuminate Education offers dynamic tools for all staff members to enter, synthesize, report, and analyze different metrics related to student progress. It is our vision that Illuminate will guide our teachers, office staff, administrators, and support staff in making data informed and evidence-based decisions using streamlined assessments and reports that provide accurate, relevant and timely information on a regular basis to key stakeholder groups. In fact, Illuminate Education’s mission closely aligns with our mission as a school district. They are creating secure online tools educators can use to promote student and educator success.

Please reach out to us at any time if you have any questions about Illuminate or other related areas of technology use in the district.
