All students have access to TEAM time!
Holy moly...progress reports - make sure you read!!!
Here is what was sent to parents in today's newsletter:
This year, progress report grades and report card grades are available in electronic format. Parents may view and print their child(ren)’s interim progress report grades and report card grades by using txConnect, rather than receiving paper copies. Parents will be notified as soon as the interim progress report grades and report card grades are available in txConnect.
The grade on txConnect are identical to what is available on the campus.
Parents will be notified of progress report grades through our parent communication system, Parentlink. Progress report dates are also posted on the district calendar. When grades are posted,parents will receive an electronic notification alerting them to log into txConnect to check grades. Due to advances in technology that give parents real-time access to their student’s grades, progress reports are not mailed home. Parents without Internet or mobile access may obtain a paper copy of their child’s progress report by contacting the front office of your child’s school.
Information on how to access your student's grades was sent home with your student today! If you need a copy, please contact our front office.
