District #7 Parent Resources
TigerView – https://tigerview.ecusd7.org
TigerView allows parents secure access to current student data such as: attendance, assignments, progress reports, report cards, bus information, teacher, and staff contact information. The system is turned on the Wednesday before school starts and turned off two weeks after the school year ends, as it is not utilized during summer school. Returning parents were given a document with their login information at Registration. New parents were given a handout walking them through the process to sign up for a login by going to the website, https://tigerview.ecusd7.org, and clicking the link “Click Here to Register for HAC.” To view step by step instructions for setting up a TigerView account please find the link on the Registration page of the District website: http://www.ecusd7.org/for_parents/reg_forms.asp

E-Library – https://elibrary.ecusd7.org/
E-Library is an online homework resource. It provides students and parents with resources that support student practice, homework completion, and quiz/ test preparation. The E-Library database includes videos, documents, and grade level specific content and vocabulary. The resource is designed to help students and parents better understand new and/or unfamiliar concepts and terms used in District 7 curricula. Parent logins are the same as the TigerView login. Any questions with logging in can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The District uses School Messenger to provide timely communication to parents and staff members via phone calls, text messages, and emails. To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages, parents must “opt-in” to receive important information from the district via our SMS text messaging service. To “opt-in,” send a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587. You can also opt out of these messages at any time, by replying “Stop” to any district message.
All District and individual school events are now located under one calendar on the district’s website at http://www.ecusd7.org/calendar.asp. This new calendar allows parents to view all district events or specific school events. If you have a Google calendar, you may click the icon on the bottom of the District 7 calendar. An “Add Calendars” screen will display where you may choose which event calendar(s) you would like to automatically sync to your Google calendar.
In order to see all Facebook posts in your newsfeed, you must “Like” the page and then click the drop down arrow from the “Following” button and select “See First.” For more detailed instructions on making this change, please click on the following link: https://www.facebook.com/ECUSD7/hc_ref=ARSKo_KoGBN7yE48S0oTgbt6sX51lmr2TwUfERW58MVYnOhP20eodBK 8Rrrke9jnMqY&fref=nf
District 7 often receives requests from other organizations to distribute information to students. The Virtual Backpack will provide users with access to information from non-profit organizations, intergovernmental agencies, and business partners. Letters, flyers, fundraiser notices, etc. will be posted on the website under virtual backpack.
