Please be aware that we have identified a data tag error within PowerSchool which has potentially impacted Standards Based Grades for student report cards in K-5 printed during the week of January 9th, 2017. Please note that this error applies ONLY to K-5 students in Math & ELA who have switched gradebooks (i.e. who have been transferred from one class to another or who have switched schools during the first semester of 2016-17).
In some cases, students who received a mark of either NR (“Not Assessed”), INC (“Lack of Work”) or NC (“Student withdrawn”) in the Q2 teacher gradebook may have had a score of “1” printed to the standard on any report cards which ran prior to Monday, January 16th,2017. This error should now be corrected with the system update this weekend to the latest version of PowerSchool.
Please be aware that this error does NOT impact any student grades in the PowerSchool Parent/Student Portal and applies ONLY to printed report cards run between Monday, January 9th and Friday, January 13.
If you believe that a student report card may have an incorrect standards grade printed, you can check to confirm by comparing the printed version of the report card to what is stored on the Quick Look-Up screen in PowerSchool.
Remember that you will need to click on the Standards Grades tab along the top of the page in order to view the recorded standards for each subject area. As we mentioned previous, the grade posted on the Standards Grades tab should be accurate.
As always, if you identify any suspected discrepancies between reported student grades and what is printed on the report card, please let us know via http://helpdesk.susd12.org as soon as possible so that we can continue to investigate and monitor the accuracy of our grade records.
