How to Check Semester Grades for Secondary Students

Students and parents can continue to access Canvas to view assessments, homework, and finals scores as they get entered. However, semester final grades will now be posted in your student's transcript within Infinite Campus rather than as a report card.


Infinite Campus will be updated with semester grades by Friday, Jan. 17. Parents can take the following steps to view semester grades in Infinite Campus:

  1. Log into Infinite Campus
  2. Click on Reports in left column
  3. Click on Portal - Transcripts tab
