Aeries is excited to announce the release of Report Card History. This new feature in Aeries allows for storing the individual report cards for every student for every grading period. The copies of these report cards will stay in a student's record and be available in subsequent terms and school years. All users, including Teachers, Parents, and Students, will be able to access the Report Card History if granted appropriate permissions.
The Report Card History contains an exact copy of the same PDF report card that the school would normally print, but instead of printing, the report card document is saved in the Aeries database. This allows the school to create a digital archive of all report cards that were issued, even if data and configurations are changed in the future. Even better, this creates the opportunity for schools and districts to save printing costs and offer grade report cards entirely online through the Aeries Student and Parent Portal.
Creating the Report Card History follows the same steps as printing the report cards. Instead of clicking Run Report, the user will click the new Generate Report Card History button.
Staff and teachers can access a student's Report Card History under Student Data | Grades in the navigation menu. Parents and Students will find the page under the Grades menu. A list of the current year's Report Card History also displays on the Student and Parent Portal home page. The page displays information such as year and term to identify the report card, with a link to view the PDF both in English and in the student's Correspondence Language if different from English.
Since the PDF has already been generated and saved in the database, there's no waiting for a report to run; the PDF will immediately display in the web browser.
