This summer, OCPS changed their grade program from ProgressBook to Skyward. In doing so, they have created a lot of problems. The problem is not the switch, however, but how they are deciding to handle it.

The first problem is that student transcripts are not accurate. Seniors are mostly affected by this, with early application deadlines for colleges coming up. Students around the county are missing grades, credits, courses, and a variety of other things from their transcripts. Without these transcripts, many students are going to have to submit inaccurate data to colleges, putting them at a disadvantage for college admission.

The second issue is that is that charter school students are not planned to have student access to see their grades. This means that charter school students can not see their grades without contacting teachers. Excluding charter school students, OCPS has 210,000 students. This new program cannot handle that many students. This issue was known by OCPS. Over the summer, they asked charter schools if they wanted access for their students. We said yes. They knew this was going to be an issue, yet they still rolled out Skyward.

This transfer to Skyward has affected many students, and has not been responded to properly by OCPS. Students have contacted representatives, and OCPS. The issue, however, have not been completely fixed. Students need access to their grades. They need access to their transcripts. This is an issue as seniors around the county are applying to colleges with inaccurate transcript information. Please help spread the word of this issue, to find a solution as fast as we can.
