I feel relatively confident that most students know how to access infinite campus to check your grades, but parents may not be looking at progress as consistently. In part this may be because they are allowing you to take responsibility for your own learning and watching as you develop independence while still in high school and part of it is that your parents are busy and infinite campus can be “out of sight, out of mind”.
Parents, with the first semester now over, I strongly encourage you to log in to Infinite Campus and see your son or daughter’s first semester grades. We do not mail report cards home, so this is the only way to be able to access the report cards.
If parents do not know their username and password, please go to www.worthington.k12.oh.us and click on the login button in the top right corner. The next screen will ask for the login information and it provides an option to enter your e-mail address if you do not know your username and password. Please note that your email address must match the one the district has in your student’s profile. Once you submit your e-mail address, computer services will soon e-mail you with your username and password.
The online report-cards allow parents and students to assess the progress on an ongoing basis. As we begin the second semester this is a great opportunity for parents to ask themselves questions related to your kids grades. Are your son/ daughter's grades what you had expected? Are you pleased? Does your son or daughter need more structure or support to help them develop new skills for studying or preparing for classes? If your student is struggling to be successful one of my top suggestions is to talk to your student and to the teachers! Teachers have a good perspective on where kids stand in their class. They can help clarify on concepts that students are missing, areas for improvement, and they can provide concrete suggestions for how your son/ daughter can make changes to find success in their classes.
I will be reviewing all of your grades for the semester and completing credit checks for all of my students so that I can be sure you are staying on track. It is still beneficial for you and your parents to keep track of your progress as well.
Additionally, for current seniors, now that you are half way through the year, many colleges will want to get mid-year reports of your transcript. For all of the colleges on Common App, I will upload your updated transcript automatically this week. If you applied through a different means other than the Common App website and your colleges want mid-year reports then you will need to come into the counseling center to see Mrs. McDaniel to request for your updated transcript being sent to the specific colleges.
