Albany-- As of now, Dougherty County parents can no longer keep up with their child's performance in school using the HIP program.

Last year, parents could call a phone number or go on-line to access schools for information, grades, attendance, and even notes from teachers. But a grant paying for the popular program has run out.

“It has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Deputy Superintendent Carlos Keith. “We piloted 18 schools, and we had parents calling wanting it in all the schools, but the response has been overwhelmingly positive."

The program costs about two dollars per child per month to maintain. The school system is looking into other grants to pay for the program.
