We use Jupiter Ed in middle and high school as an online grading and communication system. Students and parents can login and check grades, missing assignments, and contact any of their teachers. We use Google Classroom to post materials and assignments and Jupiter Ed to post grades. There's a good overview of Google Classroom here.
Uniform Complaint Procedure
Problems and conflicts are part of community. Here's how we handle them. First, call or email the teacher directly and set up a time to talk about your concerns. If more support is needed, Brenda, the Lead Teacher, and our school psych/social work team are available to help. We often use a team approach and restorative practices to solve problems. If that's still not working, the School Board is your next stop. The formal Uniform Complaint Procedure is here.
AB 104 is a new law that gives parents the right to:
1. Request student retention.
2. Request pass/no pass grades for students whose grades suffered during distance learning.
3. Request that juniors and seniors have extra graduation requirements waived. For more information see the AB 104 fact sheet. There is also a Grade Change Application and a list of all colleges that are accepting P/NP grades.
