Power School & Grades
How will grades be kept instead of using PowerSchool?
I will be keeping student grades on google sheets----back to the way we used to do things! I have set it up to average the grades for me. PowerSchool will only be used to enter the final grading period grades.
How will you, as a parent, know what is happening with your child's grades?
- You can look at the papers that come home. Items with grades on them will be counted toward your child's final grade. You may notice that not everything comes home with a grade. When introducing new material, we go over things together, so if there is no grade marked on the page, then it was a skill we were practicing and not assessing.
- If I have concerns about your child's grades, or if your child is getting especially low marks or missing assignments, I will contact you.
- At mid-term, I will give you updated information on your child's grades. When PowerSchool worked, we stopped doing interims because parents were able to access their child's grades at any time. Since you won't be able to do that any more, I will create a form to send home around midterm so that you will know where we stand.
- At any time, you can contact me through email, written notes, dojo or by phone and I will let you know how things look for your child's grades.
I apologize for this change, but if I am not able to communicate with you clearly using the tool, then it is time to make a change.
