Report Cards - Update!

posted Oct 18, 2017, 4:28 AM by Jim Frye

Before the 2017-2018 school year began, the Upper Sandusky Administrative Team decided to not print grade cards this year, except for the final grade card at the end of the school year. Two main reasons drove this decision:

1. Students and Parents/Guardians have access to grades and attendance online via our PowerSchool Parent Portal. Parent Portal provides users with real-time access, meaning by the time you receive a grade card the data is already 1-2 weeks old.

2. This will help the district save money by not printing 1760 grade cards four times or 7,040 grade cards. We can save toner and paper, and help our environment.

If you are a parent or guardian who has not set up your Parent Portal account and need your child(ren)'s Parent Portal Information Letter, please contact the main office of the school building your child(ren) attend and the building secretary can either print off your letter for pickup, or, email you the letter if you have an active email account/address. Parent Portal is linked on the main page of our district website, or can be found at:

https://ps-us.metasolutions.net/public

If you have any questions or issues with your account please contact our district technology coordinator, Jim Frye, by emailing him at jim_f@usevs.org.
