Using the portal
Announcements regarding the Portal:
The parent portal will be opened for grades K-12 at the first quarter interim on October 2, 2013.
Login information will be mailed home to parents/guardians that have submitted the account request form on or before October 1st 2013.
Login information for the Parent Portal does not carry over year-to-year. If you had access to the Parent Portal last year, you will need to submit a new account request form for the 2013-2014 school year.
Assessment and Grading Expectations:
a. Teachers will input grades within 10 days of assignment completion date.
b. Blue Ridge teachers will have 3 categories that will compute your student's average. Everyone will have a formative category, which will NOT impact the average. Teachers will also have two categories in which to put assessments based on the number of strands addressed. How these categories are weighted is determined by individual departments.
X = Student is exempt from an assignment and the assignment will not be included in any grade calculation
Z = Student has NOT completed the assignment and the assignment will be calculated as a zero if not turned in.
T = The assignment has been turned in, but not yet graded.
Gaining access to the portal:
To gain access to the Parent Portal, please complete the account request form and bring it into the school or send it in with your child. Once we verify your information we will send your login and password information.
New for 2013 - A separate username and password can be issued for two parents/guardians per student. Each parent/guardian who would like their own login information must submit a separate account request form.
Please remember to change your password once you first login to the portal.
