Parents and College Grades

Parents, we invite you to reach out to Mr. Ferguson (dferguson@randolph.k12.nc.us), our RCC Liaison, at any time with questions or concerns about your child's academic performance in a college class. Please remember, our high school students are treated as college students regarding their RCC courses; therefore, college instructors will only speak directly to the student. Additionally, Mr. Ferguson addresses any alerts/concerns he receives from instructors with our students. We encourage you to have conversations with your student. Please have students show you their Moodle (college courses), Canvas (high school courses) and PowerSchool. You can access Parent Portal for PowerSchool and you can become an observer in Canvas as well. Please be aware when a student is withdrawn from a college class, he/she receives a failure on the high school transcript.

FERPA Release Form

Once a FERPA release form has been processed, parents of college students will be able to request any information from their child's records at the registrar's office (full transcript included). Mr. Ferguson will also be able to include the parent's email address when he sends out a student's alert.


The FERPA Form can be found at the following web address: https://etcentral.primary.randolph.edu/#/form/55 .


It must be noted that parents will need to fill out the FERPA form by clicking the "Azure AD" button (pictured).


Parents will then log in with their child's RCC username and password.


This form must be filled out each academic year to retain access. Additionally, once approved, the parent will be able to login and see their child's information without asking their child for it on Self-Service.
