In District Boundaries
The in-district boundary exception process for 2015-16 begins on January 12. Applications are available in the main office. If you are attending Skyview on a boundary exception, you must renew your request each school year. If you are here from out of district (not Vancouver schools) those applications are accepted in May of 2015.
We have made a change in the gradebook reporting that you see in your Family and Student Access to Skyward to make it easier to see what a student’s grade is in a particular class. Previously, quarter grades were shown as discrete buckets that didn’t influence each other with only the semester grade being cumulative across the entire semester. This caused confusion for students and parents not knowing which grade they should focus on. With this new change, all grades will be cumulative over the semester which means that the most current grade you see for a class will reflect all of the student’s work thus far in the semester and will match the S1 grade that you can see. Please remember that the semester grade is the only grade that shows up on transcripts.
