WHAT'S NEW: 

HOW TO CHECK YOUR CHILD'S GRADES

Many parents have been directed to access the Parent Portal to review their student's report cards and progress reports.  It is a very convenient and efficient way to access that data.  However, there is no menu item in the portal labeled "Report Card".  In the parent portal, there is a Marks tab and a Transcript tab.  The Marks tab when selected will show all grades for Semester 1, Semester 2, Progress Report 1 and Progress report 2.  The Transcript tab when selected will show the student's entire transcript for grades 9 though 12. 

An image of what parents will see is show below.  First, the menu and then a portion of what is displayed upon selecting each menu item.

IF YOU NEED A HARD COPY OF YOUR CHILD'S GRADES, CONTACT WEST AT 313-295-5783 TO ARRANGE TO PICK IT UP BEFOR JULY 10.
