    Checking Grades and Assignments using ParentVUE
    ParentVUE will enable you to look at your student's current grades as well as look at assignment scores in detail. You can also access demographic information as well as grade information for all kids you may have in the district enrolled in other schools (i.e. Sam Barlow High School, Powell Valley Elementary, etc.). This is also a great way to track student work and to help foster conversations about your child's grades and classroom performance.

Each family is given this booklet at the start of the school year and specific aspects of this information is discussed with students at various times throughout the year. Please be sure to review this as well as discussing these expectations with your student(s).
