The detail for attendance will show a reasonable span of time around the current date. A “dot” in the table indicates the child is not scheduled to be in school on that day, or attendance was not taken. A clear space indicates the student was present. Absent is denoted with an “A” in the table and Tardy is shown with a “T”. A legend for this screen is available at the bottom of the page. What looks like duplicate entries is where your chiild is scheduled for first and second semester. First semester always appears on top.
Class Score Detail
If you click on the score for a class, you will see the Class Score Detail screen, outlining assignments. You will see the final calculated grade to date and individual assignments. The words in blue are links to even more detail about each assignment category and the actual assignment. Different teachers will provide different levels of detail for each assignment and category.
You can ask PowerSchool to send you periodic e-mail with detailed information about your child’s progress in school. This screen requests what you want to know in each e-mail, and how frequently you wish to receive the e-mails. We recommend a weekly report over a daily report, but the frequency of when you receive e-mails is up to you. If you ever wish to change the email address where the e-mails are sent or the frequency of emails, you can change it from this screen at a future date.
The "Teacher Comments" screen provides information via each teacher and course. Teachers have the optional ability to provide a comment, but comments will most likely be added at interim and at the end of marking periods. If a teacher does have a comment for your child, it can be accessed by clicking the “Teacher Comments” icon along the top toolbar within the Parent Portal.
