Grade History - "Disappearing" Grades

Because of the difference in grading reporting between the Elem/MS & HS, you will notice that at the end of the semester grades will "disappear." Once a grading period ends, those grades become part of "Grade History." You will need to view them by clicking the Grade History tab in the Navigation on the left. This will be most noticeable to 9th Grade Parents.

(NOTE: IT TAKES ABOUT A WEEK FOR US TO STORE GRADES AFTER THE END OF THE TERM)
Grades will not show up in Grade History until they are stored

HS Terms End at the Semester (2 terms - Jan/May)

MS/Elem Terms end at the year (1 term - May)

FinalForms Step-By-Step Instructions

What is the difference between the website and all the social media links?

Our website is primarily designed to house forms, information and the necessary links for normal day to day business operations. Social media is designed to keep you informed of current events involving our school and students. If you need a form, link or general information - visit the website. If you want to see what is happening in and around the classroom - visit social media!

Social media links are located in the Parent/Student menu and at the bottom of each web page.

What is PowerSchool?

PowerSchool is our online grading system. As a parent/guardian you can view your child's grades, setup email notifications, check out the lunch balance and even email your child's teacher. If you have more than 1 child, you can link multiple children to your parent account. In order to link children to your account you will need an Access ID and Access Password (these are different than the usernames and logins we provide each child to access his/her account).

How do I get the necessary Access IDs and Access Passwords to add my child to my PowerSchool Account?

Contact techdept@phpatriots.org and supply your name and the names and grades of each child. The tech department will then verify that you are the parent/guardian on record and will send you the necessary information for linking your children to your parent account.

What is PayForIt

PayForIt (now known as PaySchools) is an online way for you to pay for your child's fees and view or add money to your child's lunch account. You are NOT required to pay fees or add lunch money using this service and you can just create an account to view the information (account creation still requires a credit card, but you never have to charge anything to it if you do NOT want to). In order to link children ro your account, you will need the Student ID.

How can I get the Student ID to add my child to my PayForIt Account?

The cafeteria supervisor and tech department are setup to handle these requests. You can also get the necessary information from your school office, guidance department, and your child's teacher.

What is an iCal and why would someone want to use them?

iCal is the standard internet format for exchanging calendar information. With an iCal, you can share or subscribe to the calendars of others. Many common calendar applications work with iCal including Google and Apple. Microsoft Outlook can also work with iCal but to a limited extent. iCal files are usually .ics, .ical, .ifb, and .icalendar. Below are the iCals for each of our popular district calendars that you can subscribe to within your own personal digital calendar. Many times, you can add these calendars by "importing" or "subscribing" and providing the text link for the calendar. For instructions on subscribing to an iCal, you will need to consult your own device or software documentation.

By subscribing to any of our district iCals, you can stay up-to-date with scheduling information as we have it. You can also setup notifications for events you are interested in from within your calendar application. Please bear with us while we continue to make adjustments to how we can inform and post information simultaneously. We are somewhat new to iCals and are still putting our systems in place to make sure they are updated regularly. We expect hiccups throughout the process.

Student Online Activity Alert FAQs

Student Online Activity Alert Document

Online Activity Alert FAQ Document

What triggers suspicious online activity alerts?

Every student account and device issued by the school has protection built in that notifies us of potential problems. The problem areas we receive notifications for are: violence, sexual content, self-harm, bullying, drug/alcohol, depression, and profanity. We also receive notifications when students visit sites that have been explicitly blocked.

 

Who receives these alerts?

Currently, our necessary administrative team (Superintendent, Principals, Director of Technology) and Guidance Teams receive the appropriate alerts. These alerts can happen at any point in time, 24/7. As a general rule of practice, we are NOT required to monitor these alerts 24/7. We do monitor the alerts throughout the school day, but outside of the regular school day, we are NOT monitoring them. Due to the nature of email and 24/7 alerting, it is possible the alerts get viewed outside of the school day, but we will only act on it if we believe there is potential for imminent danger.

 

What does the district do when it receives an alert?

It is important to note that not all alerts are equal. There are many false positives. For example, a student searching for music with violent lyrics could trigger a violence alert. We do not address every alert we see. When we do receive an alert, they are viewed by building administration and handled appropriately. Less severe or non-life threatening alerts are either ignored or may prompt a conversation between a principal or guidance counselor and a student at a future time. More severe alerts are handled as quickly as possible and usually start with a conversation that will lead to the appropriate next steps, depending on the situation and severity.

 

How should a parent handle alerts

Keep in mind, receiving an alert does not necessarily mean there is a problem. A simple search for music or gamer videos could trigger violence alerts. Keeping track of current events could trigger all sorts of alerts because there are many crazy things happening in the world. If you are notified that we have received an alert, take the information and check on it. If you need more resources, feel free to ask us or contact crisis intervention hotlines if you feel there are deeper issues. Ultimately, it is up to you as the parent to decide how to proceed. Please know you are not alone and there are many resources available to you!

 

What about student rights and privacy?

Per our Board Approved Acceptable Use Policy, we reserve the right to “monitor, inspect, copy, review and store at any time and without prior notice any and all usage of the computer network and internet access and any and all information transmitted or received in connection with such usage. All such information files shall be and remain the property of the School district and no user shall have any expectation of privacy regarding such materials.” This policy does not give us rights to do whatever we want with our student information. We are legally required to abide by Federal CIPA, FERPA and COPPA laws, as well as Ohio Revised Code, and we take that responsibility seriously. However, we are operating within our rights to track our accounts and our devices.
