The Information Now, or iNow, system allows parents, guardians and students to access online assignments, grades, attendance, emergency information and schedules on a regular basis. The system requires a unique login and password for a parent or guardian to access the child’s information. INow system incorporates a Secure Socket Layer, or SSL, encryption for security and confidentiality purposes.
This system is the student data system for all school systems in the state of Alabama as of 2015. The SSL encryption enhances the security of the iNow system. Parents or guardians can request their login and password details from their children’s schools and monitor their children's assignments and grades regularly. The schools also assist parents and guardians with resetting their passwords whenever they require that kind of assistance. Schools using the iNow system uphold the security and confidentiality of the system by only giving login and password details to enrolled students, parents and guardians.
The system requirements of Information Now are a minimum screen resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels and supported Web browsers such as Internet Explorer 7+ or Firefox 1.5+ as of 2015, with an optional plugin of Adobe Acrobat. Also, users need to disable or override any pop-up blockers.
