Students received an email at the beginning of the school year with a link that takes them through the setup process to activate their account. Before students can access the Student Gradebook Portal, students need to activate their account. Once the account is active students should be able to access their grades online. If you are still having trouble accessing your account after you followed the activation process in the email please let your teacher know so they can contact the technology staff for help.
