Student / Parent Portal is accessed from the Platte County School District website - select the 'Students' or 'Parents' tab.
Portal will have:
* Gradebook: 95% of student's grade will be based on assignments designated as 'Assessment' and 5% of student's grade will be assignments designated as 'Practice'.
--> Any missing assignments will be marked as 'MSNG' in Portal.
--> The Gradebook is the final authority on whether an assignment was turned in or is missing.
--> Please note that the status of assignments in the Gradebook are NOT directly synced to the assignment status in Google Classroom.
--> All students are responsible for updating the status of every assignment given in Google Classroom as a To-Do list. They need to ensure they mark each assignment in Google Classroom as 'DONE/TURNED IN' when completed.
--> An assignment may appear as 'MSNG (missing)' in the Gradebook while the student marked it completed in Google Classroom but didn't actually turn-in the assignment. Or, a grade may be posted in the Gradebook while the assignment is listed as 'Not Done' on Google Classroom. The teacher cannot update the status of any assignment on Google Classroom - only the student can mark it DONE/TURNED IN on Google Classroom.
* Homework: A copy of the assignment is usually available for download on Google Classroom if the copy originally distributed in class is lost by the student and another copy is needed; or if the student is absent from school on the day the assignment was given.
* Parents - if you do not have access to Parent Portal or need help signing on, please contact the PCMS Front Office for assistance.
