Accessing Students' Grades, Attendance, Other Data
All students will be given access to what is referred as the Student Portal in Aeries. The Student Portal will provide access to students' grades, attendance and other important data. We have sent Aeries a data file with our students’ Google Accounts and their Aeries Data file. Aeries is pairing that information now. When Aeries finishes the pairing process, students will be able to access their Student Portal through their Google account. Principal Todd Dearden said on Wednesday, "We spoke to Aeries today and they informed us that the data reformulation is not yet completed. We expect Aeries to grant student access to the Student Portal this week."
