Parent Access to Student Information & Classwork
HCPSS Connect Updates
Canvas and HCPSS Connect (Synergy) Grades – 9/29/2015
A few parents have asked where course averages and final grades are displayed. Course averages and final grades are not calculated or displayed in Canvas Learning System. Parents and students can see their calculated averages and final grades in HCPSS Connect, which is also Synergy. HCPSS Connect (Synergy) is the student’s official system of record and the system that produces the report cards.
Daily grades (homework, classwork, assessments, etc.) are entered into Canvas Learning System by middle and high school teachers, which may be accessed by their students. These scores are then transferred from Canvas to HCPSS Connect (Synergy) within 6-8 hours where weighting is applied to each assignment group (homework, classwork, assessments, etc.).
HCPSS Connect (Synergy) Updates – 9/28/2015
Student assignment grades are now appearing in HCPSS Connect (Synergy) and both students and parents have access. Once a grade is entered into the Canvas Learning System by a teacher, it will be available in HCPSS Connect (Synergy) within 6-8 hours. We are working with our vendor to reduce this synchronization time even further. Parents and students can see grades for class assignments, homework, and quizzes, as well as the weighted aggregate score in HCPSS Connect (Synergy). Aggregate scores (grades) are based on the weights determined by the teacher.
HCPSS Connect provides access to a variety of student information and classroom instructional tools offering personalized communication and timely, relevant, and easily accessible information relating to your student.
