Progress reports this week!
Please log on to Focus to view your student's current grade.
DCPS had some technical issues with Focus at the beginning of the school year that was not allowing teachers to enter grades into the grade book, however, this has now been fixed and teachers have been busy catching their grades back up.
Please know that science, culinary, and aviation grades will be handed out on paper. These classes have had work assigned that students should be completing.
Dual enrollment courses are college courses that run on the college's calendar and criteria and therefore do not have high school progress reports. Please know that dual enrolllment grades go on both your student's high school and college transcript.
Make sure you set up your Focus account!
