CCSD to Begin Sending Parents Weekly Absence and Grades Reports

Category : CCSD

The Cherokee County School District on Saturday, March 3, 2018 will begin emailing parents a weekly school attendance and grades report.

“Parents asked for this service, and I’m very happy to share that our Technology & Information Services staff developed a way to use our new Canvas learning management system and Aspen student information system to provide these updates,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “This new function comes at no cost to the School District and helps us better serve parents and students.”

The information shared with parents every Saturday by email will vary depending on the grade in which their child is enrolled.

For students in kindergarten through second grade, the report will share weekly and cumulative totals for full-day absences (excused and unexcused), tardies and checkouts. These reports do not include grades.

For students in third through eighth grade, the report will share weekly and cumulative totals for full-day absences (excused and unexcused), tardies and checkouts, as well as a current grade for each class. Parents additionally will receive cumulative absences by class for middle school students in high school-credit courses.

For students in high school, the report will share cumulative absences and grades by class. Cumulative totals are important to high school students to ensure they do not exceed allowed absence totals. The system will not produce a report on weekly absences by class, but parents can determine that total by comparing the new report to the previous week’s report.

These emails will be sent to parents using the email address currently on file with the school and stored in Aspen… the same email address used to send parents School Messenger emails. If a parent wants to change his or her email address on file, please contact the front office of the child’s school for assistance.
