• Echo:


    Students and teachers collaborate across the New Tech Network through a web-based program called Echo.  Echo is also the tool used to display student grades.  Parents and guardians are encouraged to use this site as well, as we appreciate the integral role that family plays in student P.R.I.D.E. development.
     
    Students and Parents:  access Echo at http://srhs.echo-ntn.org/.  
    Parents:  Request a parent account in Echo by filling out this linked form.  This account will link to your student's account allowing you to see their projects, assignment, and grades.
