At the Board of Education Meeting on April 16, 2015, the final day of school for the 2014-2015 school year was officially announced. As a result of the cold days this winter, the last day of classes will be June 9, 2015.
As we’ve been doing for a couple of years, there will be no Verification Sheets. This means that teachers and teams will need to self-verify academic grades, Learner Quality marks, Power Standards, and comments prior to when grades are due. Based on that information and considering that school offices will need to print Trimester 3 Report Cards and 2014-2015 Power Standards Summary Reports for all first through eighth grade students this year, the following timeline for final academic grade, Learner Quality, Power Standard, and comment entry in the PowerTeacher Gradebook will be as follows:
- Tuesday, June 2–All verifications must be complete, and final grades, comments, etc. are due by 9.00 AM. Report Card & Power Standard Summary Report printing begins. Elementary Schools will be provided with a schedule as to who can print when. Middle school offices will be able to queue Report Cards and Power Standards Summary Reports after school.
- Tuesday, June 2-Friday, June 5–Report Card and Power Standard Summary Report Creation & Printing. (Elementary Schools will be provided with a schedule as to who can print when. Middle schools can print from already queued report cards. Middle schools cannot queue report cards between 8 AM and 3.50 PM.) Report Cards and Power Standard Summary Reports must be complete and distributed to teams by Monday, June 8th in preparation for distribution on the last day of school, Tuesday, June 9th.
- Tuesday, June 9th–Report Cards and Power Standard Summary Reports are sent home with students on this final day of classes.
Please note that this schedule is very compressed with the need to print both Report Cards and Power Standards Summary Reports, so offices will remain busy with printing during these already busy final days!
