Report Cards and Grade Monitoring

There are 2 places to view student progress - Canvas and Aeries.


Canvas - Weekly Progress Monitoring: Canvas is a Learning Management System.  This is where you find information about a class (like the syllabus) as well as each of the assignments and the grade earned for each assignment.  

It is very important to look at Canvas on a weekly basis with your student.  

  1. Each week, check Canvas on Thursday night and contact teachers with any questions on Friday. 

  2. Finish or correct any incomplete work and electronically turn it in over the weekend. This will help your student start each new week focused only on that week. Remember, it is hard to go back and finish or correct past assignments. It is much easier to get caught up or make corrections on a regular basis.

  3. If you are concerned about your student’s grades, contact the teacher directly (send a message via Canvas or email).


Aeries - 6 week Progress Reporting: Aeries grades are a snapshot of the class grade at one point in time.  The Quarter and Semester grades are important as they determine if a student is earning credit for a class.  A student does not earn credit for a class if they receive a letter grade of “F” for their Semester grade.

Report Cards are available electronically on Aeries (our Information System) instead of being mailed home.

Each time there are new Report Card grades, a Parent Square message will be sent from SBUSD entitled “New Report Card Grades Available in Aeries”. When you get an email notification, please login to Aeries to review your student’s grades.
