Resources within Gradelink
Recording Student Health Info
Recording required daily temperature checks and other student health data can be a hassle. We have an easier way to track everything.
Report Cards and Alternative Grades
Alternative grading scales are used to give students a grade other than what’s automatically calculated on the grade sheet. To use them for your school, just follow these step-by-step instructions.
Many schools are implementing alternating or hybrid schedules to reduce the number of students on campus at a time. Click below to see how to modify your schedules to accommodate your needs:
School News Page
Communicate important events and updates with the entire school with a School News page. It’s the first thing students and parents see when they log in.
Assignments and Attachments
Attach files to assignments for students to download through their Gradelink accounts. This can include worksheets saved as PDFs, images and video files.
Use EnrollMe to make it easy for new families to enroll and current families to re-enroll online. Make sure to communicate clearly when you are accepting applications and re-enrollment.
Save countless hours by syncing assignment and quiz grades from Google Classroom to your Gradelink gradebook. It’s available to all Gradelink users at no additional charge.
