Student Information

Family Access is “real time”, meaning that once your student’s information is updated it will automatically show up to be viewed in Family Access. Please allow teachers ample time to return assignments and update grade information accordingly. Essays, research papers, projects, etc.… take longer to grade than a typical assignment, so please take that into consideration and allow for extra grading time before contacting you student’s teacher. Grades are fluid and change daily/weekly as teachers add assignments and grades to the system. Grades are not “official” until the grading term has ended and final grades are issued. Grades will only show for Grades 2 – 12.
