How to Generate Elementary Report Cards

SMS 2.0- rev 02/2018

Beginning in the 2013-14 school year, report cards are now to be printed for distribution to the students and also posted in Family Access. This will allow the parent to view the report card anytime they log in. The posted report cards will also be viewable and printable in Student Profile in Skyward. Be sure you follow the directions carefully to get them posted correctly. This should eliminate the need for special groups or additional office people to re-generate and print the student's report card. They can view or print the actual original report card as it was distributed from the student record.

This document will take you through the process for Generating, printing, and posting the Report Cards.

Only 1 person on a campus should be generating or printing report cards from the report card template from now on. Anyone else needing a copy of the report card should get it from the student's portfolio.

The report cards must be printed--and then run again for the posting. (This is different than

the process for IPRs which prints and posts at the same time.) This must be done immediately after the printing so that the posted report card is exactly the same as the printed report card.

It will be important that you DO NOT SHARE your report card template with others at your entity because they could use it to REPOST report cards. It will also be important for you to follow all of the directions carefully especially in regard to the Family Access posting procedures. It is also REQUIRED that as soon as you Post the report cards, you uncheck the posting option on your template to avoid double posting.

A. Teachers should have been given campus-based instructions regarding deadlines and procedures

for grade reporting. These are 3 suggested options when it comes time to print report cards:

1. Set a date and time report cards will be printed each reporting period. Teachers will not need to do anything extra except make sure all their assignment grades, conduct grades, and report card comments are entered by that time AND are dated within the specified term.

2. Set a date and time for all teachers to have their assignment grades, conduct grades, and report card comments entered for each reporting period AND are dated within the specified term. Generate and distribute "Grade Input and Proof" sheets with a designated deadline for teachers to review and correct their grade book. Once all corrections have been made, generate report cards. (If you select this option there is a separate HOW TO for generating "Grade Input and Proof" sheets on the HOW TO web page.)

3. Have teachers use the function in their grade book to "Mark All Classes Complete." Your clerk can then run a report listing those teachers that have not done this yet and make sure they do. Once all teachers have all their classes marked complete, generate report cards. (If you select this option there is a separate HOW TO for monitoring teachers who have not marked their classes complete on the HOW TO web page.)

NOTE: The following steps for generating report cards are based on Option 1.

C. INPUT OF GRADE CHANGES--All grade changes should be input by the teachers in their grade

book. Once the changes have been made in the grade book, they will auto-post to Student Management.

All grade averages are calcuated in the teacher's grade book. The office cannot make grade changes or input grades in the student's grade screen in Student

Profile because the teacher's grade book will overwrite those manually input grades. If a student has moved to a new school or new class, the new teacher must input the transfer grades

into their grade book. o Use the New button to transfer the grades in o Obtain the grades from the Former Teacher and put them in
