communicating with teachers
Communicating with Teachers

PowerSchool is a tool to increase communication between parents and teachers. We are excited at the potential of this new application, but realize that with this comes a shift in the way we work and communicate. For example, the teachers at Warren Woods Tower High School are using PowerSchool Teacher’s electronic grade book and have spent numerous hours learning how to use the program to its full potential. We believe that along with teachers, it is also important for parents to become educated in the process of grades and assessment. Before PowerSchool, parents received grade information only upon request or at scheduled times. With PowerSchool, it will now be possible for parents to check grade information at any point in the year. With that in mind, parents need to know and understand the following:

student grade concerns
Student Grade Concerns
  • Talk with your child first.
  • Read the grading policy of the teacher.
  • Check to see if there is an assignment description. In the Class Score Detail screen, if the assignment is listed in blue it will have more information about the assignment.
  • Check the date of the assignment. An assignment handed in late may receive deductions from its score
  • See if there are any missing or late assignments that could be affecting the overall grade average.
  • If none of the above helps, you can contact a teacher for clarification about grades.
