Transcripts
Parents, your students will not receive a transcript, from the county, until January. However, you can always check Q1 grades through the Parent Portal: ParentVue! You will need to toggle your Parent Portal Gradebook to see your students Q1 grades. Please note that grades are organized by grading periods (Quarter, Semester, and Quarter End of Course) so there may be multiple toggles.
New ParentVUE APP

The Synergy Parent mobile app, ParentVUE, is now available for use. The app is available in the Apple App Store, as well as the Google Play Store. It will allow parents, who have a parent portal account, to view schedules, grades, see when assignments are due, view graduation requirements, find missing assignments, and view other important student information. An active parent portal account is required to log in to ParentVUE. The app does not include the full Parent Portal Experience.
