The New Galileo K-12 Student-Parent Center

The Galileo K-12 Student-Parent Center's updated platform provides users many new features. These include:
  • user-friendly icons and graphical representations,
  • responsive design to accommodate the use of the center on various screen sizes, such as laptops, tablets and desk tops,
  • the integration of Google Translate enabling families whose primary language is not English to use the center efficiently, and
  • a convenient option to choose when to implement the new interface. 

Districts and charter schools have the option to switch now to the new interface or to continue using the classic interface accompanied with a preview of the new interface. ATI encourages districts to explore the new Galileo K-12 Student-Parent Center and create a plan to implement and train staff and students on how to utilize the new platform. To assist in this, districts can setup a preview of the new platform and access the preview with a student username and password. 

Once the preview is activated all students will be able to access the new platform from the classic Galileo K-12 Student-Parent Center. During this preview phase, ATI encourages you to have teachers schedule formative assessments, and Dialogs. Teachers should instruct students to access the formative assessments and Dialogs from the new interface. This will provide students and teachers the opportunity to experience the new platform in a casual environment, rather than having the first experience during district-wide testing.
