Parent Portal Etiquette
The parent portal will allow you instant access to your child’s academic information, including individual classroom assignments and corresponding grades. However, grades are only shown after teachers have finished entering them and have published them to the portal. It is at the teacher’s discretion when those grades are published to the portal.Certain assignments such as tests, projects, or long writing assignments take a great deal of time to grade. Parents need to understand that just because an assignment was handed in today does not necessarily mean the grade will be posted on the same day.While we encourage parents to be actively involved in their child’s education, we also caution parents calling or emailing a teacher to inquire as to when a particular assignment’s grade will be posted to the portal. Requests of this nature take valuable time away from the teacher’s normal out of class responsibilities of grading, providing extra help and preparing for upcoming classes. Concerns regarding grades should first be discussed between you and your child. If questions still exist, please feel free to contact the teacher at school for further discussion.
Tips to Navigate the Parent Portal Once Logged In
Once you've entered the portal by typing your username and password, read through the user agreement, then click the "I Agree" button. On the opening page, you will see the name(s) of your child(ren). Double click on the name to see the profile, schedule, report card and attendance information. The only dates reported are those on which the student was absent or late to one or more classes. The numbers across the top represent the class periods. Only look at periods one - nine and the last column marked "Daily." Explanations for the letter codes used are explained on the bottom of the grid.
