Elementary Report Card Student Notes

Grades > Elementary Report Cards > Elementary Report Card Student Notes > Cycle Notes

The Elementary Report Card Student Notes page allows you to enter notes for individual students that will be printed on the elementary skills-based report cards. These appear in the Teacher Notes section of the report card.

Enter notes:

1.        In the Semester field, click drop-down arrow to select the semester for which you want to enter notes.

2.        In the Cycle field, click drop-down arrow to select the cycle for which you want to enter notes.

3.        In the Course Section field, click drop-down arrow to select the course section for which you want to enter notes.

The students in the course are listed according to the criteria you entered. The student ID is also displayed.

4.        In the Notes field for each student, type any notes that you want printed on the student's report card.

      When you click in the field, the space expands to allow you to view more of the message you are typing. When you click out of the field, the space reverts to displaying only one row of the notes.

      The space allowed for the note depends on the setting of the Use Fixed-Size Box for Student Note field on the Admin > Elementary Report Cards > Elementary Skills-Based Report Card Setup - Step 1 page (up to 5 lines with 41 characters per line). If your note exceeds the space allowed, a message is displayed, and the changes cannot be saved.

Note:

If the space allowed is reduced after you have entered a student note, the previously entered note(s) are shortened to the new limit. For example, if five lines were allowed in cycle 1, and you entered a five-line note, all lines appeared on the cycle 1 report card. If the space allowed is reduced to three lines for cycle 2, you must enter a three-line note for cycle 2. Additionally, the cycle 1 note will be shortened to three lines, which will cause part of the cycle 1 message to be cut off on the cycle 2 report card.

5.        Before you leave the page or select another semester, cycle, or course section, you must save the data.

      In the PIN field, type your four-digit PIN.

      Click Save.

o      If your changes were saved successfully, a message is displayed indicating that the student report card notes were saved.

o      If you typed your PIN incorrectly, the system notifies you that you provided an invalid PIN. You must provide the correct PIN before you can continue.
