2nd Six Weeks RC Grade Send
Just a quick reminder that the 2nd Report Card cuts off this Fri, Nov. 2. Grades will be due on Tue, Nov. 6th by 5 PM. Yes, it is seriously November later this week! Directions for loading grades can be found here and you may begin loading grades on Thursday.
Don't forget that an Incomplete counts the same as a failing grade for eligibility, so please make every effort to avoid incompetes!
Snapshots in Aware
Also, when you want to print your Snapshots, it will be found in the same place (District Assessments) but it will be under the heading of Snapshot Assessment.
How to Change Your Password
On a school computer, please do Ctrl + Alt + Del and choose Change Password.
If you are at home and suddenly need to change your password, go to the staff portal (Go to the FISD website and click on Staff) and click on Account Management at the bottom of the page. Then click on the Change Password tile.
You may have to wait up to 30 minutes for the new changes to sync up to all the different platforms.
PC Laptop Error
So please remind students to WAIT for the computer to completely shut down and if you have kids who get the error message, tell them to power down completely and try again.
How to Print- for Students
If any of you would be willing to bring kids down to the library for a quick printing and book checkout orientation (maybe 15 minutes) we would love to have you! We are struggling with explaining the mysteries of Print Release to all of our students. Even Sophomores and Juniors still struggle with the process. They don't understand that they have to be logged in to the computer, not just Google, to print. They don't know they have to logout of computers after printing. They don't know that there are multiple printers that can be used to release their jobs.
There are of course instructions next to all six printing stations that explain how to print, but I am sure you are familiar with students' track records with reading instructions.
Please feel free to contact Ashley to schedule a SHORT orientation if you are assigning something where students need to print.
