How do you use Web-based curriculum mapping at your school to help develop and assess constituent satisfaction?

In my research, There are many layers involved in Web-based curriculum mapping. I haven't found any dangers or reasons why parents might have concerns for their childrens' safety. I see it as a way to enhance the relationship with parent and keep community aware of local curriculum and national policies.

We use Atlas Curriculum mapping in our elementary school and it seems that not too many parents have really discovered it yet. I think that it could be useful in that it could reduce the number of questions parents might have about the curriculum if they took the time to look at it, and it could afford them the opportunity to compare and contrast our curricula with those of national and state standards.

To be honest, most teachers at the school felt it was a lot of work to add the data and they think that parents don't ever look at it. I think we the teachers, as well as the administrators, have looked at it far more than parents have!

As far as safety is concerned, the website is password protected and children's names are not mentioned, so i don't see any negative consequences of online mapping. I just feel that we teachers and administrators need to do a better job of promoting the use of the curriculum mapping website so that elementary parents are more aware of it.

For every person trying to protect web based systems there are thousands looking to attack. I think it is good to think outside the box with new technology as long as you remember why the box was there in the first place. There are non web based options that eliminate these types of issues and you will not have the continually increasing costs of maintaining security, bandwidth or subscription fees.
