Gradebook

The Gradebook section of Family Access allows viewing of assignments and grades in each of your child's subjects. The gradebook screen is divided into 3 tabs:
 
Progress Report - grades posted for your child by teachers in real time. Grades posted at the end of grading terms and end of semesters are the only accurate grades. These grades reflect all assignments that have been turned in and graded during that grading term
Missing Assignments - assignments that your student has been given but have not yet been marked as complete. Teachers have a limited amount of time per day to prepare for classes and grade assignments, so it may take several days for a teacher to grade assignments and enter the grades in Gradebook. In some cases, you may not see grades for assignments until close to the end of the grading term. Please check with your child first when you have questions about missing assignments
Teacher Log -
Comments - teacher comments from the last grading cycle.
 
Message Center

The Message Center tab shows messages posted by your student's teachers. These may be mass messages sent to everyone in the class or a message sent just to you.
