  • Interim Reports No Longer Will be Printed

    Posted:  February 4, 2020

    In an effort to take full advantage of the features in StudentVUE and ParentVUE, our high school has made the decision to no longer print and hand interim reports to students on the specified dates in the school calendar.  We have found this practice to be redundant and wasteful as our students and families have become accustomed to reviewing the Grades tab in StudentVUE/ParentVUE. Interim reports also quickly become outdated as StudentVUE/ParentVUE is live and constantly changing as assignments and grades are entered into a teacher’s grade book.  Parents/guardians and students can always request a printed interim report at anytime from their teacher.

     

    If a student or parent/guardian is unable to access StudentVUE/ParentVUE, they can request an activation key if you have not set up an account.  Users can also reset their own account using the e-mail address that they created their account with.  Parents/guardians can reset their password.  Students can reset their password.  All student accounts are associated with their scps.net Google account.

  • Free SAT Preparation on Saturday, February 29, 2020, and Saturday, March 7, 2020

    Posted:  February 3, 2020

    We are excited to bring our students in Grades 10-12 an opportunity for SAT preparation and PSAT score enhancement.  Our high school, in partnership with Personal Best Tutoring, will be offering a free two-day SAT Preparation Seminar just for our students!  The seminars will take place on both Saturday, February 29, 2020, and on Saturday, March 7, 2020, from 1:00 PM-5:00 PM at our high school.  Check-in begins at 12:45 PM on each Saturday.

     

    For our sophomore students, this opportunity will increase their university/college readiness.  For our junior and senior students, this opportunity will assist them when they take the SAT this school year and plan on attending a four-year university/college.  Although community college does not require the SAT, transferring to a four-year university/college may require SAT scores.

     

    This incredible opportunity will only be offered to the first 100 students who register.  Participants are required to purchase The Official SAT Study Guide (2020 Edition) by the College Board.  You can purchase this book from our Counseling Center for just $20.00.  This book is also available from local bookstores or online.  All students attending will receive a free notes packet.

     

    Register now.  Registration closes on Thursday, February 27, 2020, at 3:00 PM.

  • Class Websites Mobile App Reported Issues

    Posted:  December 11, 2018

    We have reported to our school division the Class Websites mobile app issues that users are experiencing when utilizing the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app on their device.  These issues are being investigated further.  The issues explained below are division-wide and not just isolated to our high school.

     

    Reported Issue #1:

    Users of the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app may experience an error message when selecting the Class Websites button.  The user will be unable to view any class websites through the mobile app only.  

     

    The workaround for this issue is to access your StudentVUE/ParentVUE account from your device’s Web browser rather than the mobile app by pointing your Web browser to https://psp.staffordschools.net.

     

    Reported Issue #2:

    Users of the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app will be unable to view multiple file attachments that are posted by a teacher on the class pages when selecting the Class Websites button for a student’s courses.  This issue is present when a user is able to access the Class Websites button from the mobile app (see Reported Issue #1).  This issue only appears in the mobile app.

     

    The workaround for this issue is to access your StudentVUE/ParentVUE account from your device’s Web browser rather than the mobile app by pointing your Web browser to https://psp.staffordschools.net.
