Mid-year reports are also be referred to as semester 1 grades, updated senior year transcript, etc.

In order to have your counselor submit your mid-year report, please complete this form and submit it to your counselor ASAP. Please ensure that all questions on the form are answered. If you have questions please see your counselor.
