Illuminate Help for Parents

Welcome to the Illuminate Parent Help Page.

Dear Parents/Guardians,
PGUSD has partnered with Illuminate Education as our official student data management system to better promote and support student and educator success in our school district.

A key to understanding what each student needs to achieve success in school is having the ability to quickly identify areas of growth and areas where students require greater support. To this end, making sense of the data is essential; whether reviewing results on state or local assessments, analyzing performance on in-class exams, or monitoring behavior and social-emotional indicators over time, Illuminate Education contains  dynamic tools for all staff members to enter, synthesize, report, and analyze different measures related to student progress. Illuminate assists teachers, administrators, and support staff in making evidence-based, data-informed decisions with high-quality assessments and reporting tools that provide accurate, relevant and timely information.

For parents, the Illuminate’s Home Connection/Parent Portal provides online, easy-to-navigate timely information on their student’s academic progress. Illuminate’s mission closely aligns with our mission as a school district – promoting student and educator success.

For more information on Illuminate or other ed-tech related matters, feel free to contact us directly.
