Student's report cards/progress reports are posted in Skyward under Student Portfolio. This is also where you will find MAP test results (Grades 3-8) and any other standardized test results.
If you need help accessing your student's report card, please reference this document.
You will receive a notification when your student's report card/progress report is available for online viewing.

Have you downloaded the district app yet?
The district app is a valuable component that accompanies our new district website. The app is available by searching Germantown School District, WI from your phone's app store.
With the app, we hope to keep users up-to-date with access to school news, student stories, daily dining menus, upcoming events, documents, and more. Schools will still send direct emails through Skyward when necessary but may also switch to the app for information usually shared in their regular updates and newsletters.
You can download the app for free on both Google Play or the Apple App Store and select the entities that you'd like to follow. We suggest you follow the District in addition to whatever schools interest you.

Summary of Cyber Security Awareness Month
Zach also hosted a community session where attendees learned a “recipe” of ways to protect themselves and their children when online.
Here are some of the tips Zach recommended:
- WiFi Dos and Don'ts
- Always keep your software updated--from computers, phones, apps, smart device, etc.
- Delete TikTok and have your kids delete it too!
- Turn off your location settings on your phone.
- If you use social media on your mobile devices, access them through your phone's web browser not by using the social media apps themselves. Apps collect and share a lot information with companies, web browsers collect less.
Summary of Digital Citizenship Week
These important conversations with kids about how to be smart and stay safe online shouldn’t stop at school. To learn more about digital citizenship, please visit the Germantown School District Instructional Technology webpage.
