Parents and students – we appreciate your patience as the district has been working to correct the programming error with the high school report cards. Parents and students from all schools except Zenith and Challenger may now go to your high school starting on Thursday, July 24, to pick up your report cards. Please contact your school in advance for any senior transcript requests.
