I'm logged in, but do not see my children or child

This happens from time to time. It typically happens for those that might have children in more than one building. We won't bore you with details, but if this happens just contact Corey White with your name and your child's or children's name(s) and we can repair it relatively easily.

A little bit about grading calculations you will see

Cumulative Semester Average
For several years now we have been using a cumulative grading system. We realize that it can be a bit confusing, but we felt that it was a more fair and accurate method for calculating your student's grade. This has been a gradual process that we began in 2011 and fully stream-lined the process for the 2013-2014 school year.

Essentially, it boils down to Semester Grades. Semester grades have always been the only grade that really matters for transcripts, GPA, and permanent records. Therefore, moving to a cumulative semester average just made sense. As you follow your student through the year you will notice that you will see cumulative scores for the Fall or Spring as well as progress reports that are sent home in between those times as well. Any progress report or grade that you see will be the student's grade from the beginning of the semester to that particular point in time.

Weighted Assessment
Another item that we would like to point out is that there are various methods that our instructors have the ability to use to calculate grades. We often get questions from concerned parents that have manually calculated grades sent home to them on progress reports. However, many of our teachers use "weighted" scoring. They can give items like tests, quizzes, homework, etc... more or less weight or strength within their gradebook. If this is the case then you cannot simply average your student's grades manually and get their grade. You must factor in the "weights". If you have questions about this your child's teacher should be able to explain this to you in more detail if necessary. If they are busy I'll gladly assist you as well.
