NTO - Start Of School Reminders

#1 - Setting Up Category Weights

  • This must be done EVERY YEAR.
  • The categories of Major, Non-Major and Homework will be available to use, but the weights need to be set.
  • Weights need to EQUAL 100.

#2 - Linking Course Sections

  • This MUST be done BEFORE any ASSIGNMENTS HAVE BEEN CREATED.
  • Once assignments have been created, the system cannot differentiate between them.
  • Link any course sections at the very beginning to avoid system errors.

#3 - Naming Assignments

  • Assignment names MUST BE UNIQUE.
  • You CAN copy assignments, if you plan to give the same assignment to multiple sections.

#4 - Conduct and Comments

  • If Conduct and Comments are NOT entered before POSTING and FINALIZING, there will be no conduct or comments on the report card.
  • KG and Pre-K DO NOT use the gradebook and conduct.

#5 - Posting vs. Finalizing

  • Grades DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY POST.
  • Posting is taking your grades from assignments in your gradebook, and "posting" them to the Progress Report or Report Card.
  • Finalizing is like you digital signature that you have looked over the Progress Report or Report Card grades and they are accurate.

#6 - The Learning Center

  • Frontline's built in help center.
  • Contains hundreds of helpful guides and answers that can be text searched.

#7 - TMS Knowledge Base

  • We have a Knowledge Base on the District Website, with links to Smores to help with many instructional questions.
  • Select TEAMS STUDENT for our Student based TEAMS questions!
