Please review the entire page before proceeding. Each step is important and understanding them can save valuable time.
To Enter Kindergarten Standard Grades:
Enter all the desired grades for the set of skills for each quarter:
To Move Previous Grades to the Current Term:
There are shortcuts within Gradebook that can save some time. One such shortcut is to right-clicking on the Assignment column heading. This action will present a Copy / Paste drop-down menu.
Example: Copy a full column of grades from one Term (Q1) to another (Q2). This will give the option to continue the skills from the last snapshot.
To Enter the Report Card Comment:
To Enter the Conference Requested "Y" or "N":
To Run a Report for a Student:
Note: Official report cards will be printed by the main office.
To Proofread a Sample of the Student’s Report Card before they are Printed:
To run the KG High Frequency Word List:
Another report available for each student is the Sight Word List, titled KG High Frequency Word List. This is merely a list of Sight Words for the student. In years past, this list was included in the Kindergarten Progress Report; however, presently the list is maintained on a separate report. Follow the same instructions above for proofreading the Kindergarten Report Card Q1-Q4. The recommendation is for each teacher to print and mark on the list for their individual class. If there is another preferred list, feel free to use that list. This report was created as a convenience for the teachers that relied on the yellow booklet.
To Finalize Grades:
Once the reports have been proofread and the grades have been recorded completely, one last step is required to inform PowerSchool that the grades are finalized.
Simply, Select the current Reporting Term and then click on the <Current Quarter> In Progress button and select the Final Grades Complete checkbox. The quarter's Status Comment is unnecessary.
This process notifies the Main Office through the Section Readiness Report that the grades are completed and ready for printing.
To Change a Grade after Finalizing:
If there is a need to change a grade after finalizing grades, fill out the Grade Change Request Form, inform the Main Office immediately to correct the Historical Grade, and to rerun the report card for the student. The teacher is responsible for updating the Gradebook Grade. Kindergarten standard grades do not need to be changed in Historical Grades so only a new report card is needed for the student.
