Eliminating Interim Reports. Offering Real-Time Grades
Posted on 09/24/2019
VUE your grades in real-time

Starting in the 2019-20 school year, with The Hub, our new portal for parents, teachers, and students, grades can now be viewed in real-time (via ParentVUE, StudentVUE, and TeacherVUE).

Teachers are expected to update student grades consistently to ensure students and parents are receiving an accurate screen shot of their performance in a class or subject area. Principals are responsible for working with teachers to ensure grades are regularly updated in The Hub.

Reminders in multiple languages will be sent to all parents/guardians at the quarter mid-point (the traditional interim period) to specifically check grades in ParentVUE and check-in with teachers on any concerns. Separate interim grades will not be calculated, and separate interim reports will not be created. Learn more about grading in PWCS.

Further key points include:

  • Each quarter, teachers will share a formal report on student progress in the form of a report card grade.

  • Course grades will be reflected in real-time as teachers input them. Students and parents will have immediate and continual progress updates in a class or subject area.

  • Parents/guardians and students are encouraged to check their ParentVUE and StudentVUE accounts regularly and contact their child’s teacher if there are any questions/concerns about grades and/or student progress. If your child’s teacher is not responsive, please reach out to the school administrator.

  • The ParentVUE app provides parents/guardians the ability to set a grade threshold, as well as the option to set reminders when an assignment date is approaching. Please note that notifications will not be sent via email. However, icons will appear in the app.

  • Elementary parent-teacher conferences will still be expected. Middle and high school conferences are established by individual schools. Visit your child’s school website or contact the school for scheduling details and description of conference.

  • Per Regulation 665-1, notifications will be sent to parents/guardians if their child is in danger of failing.
