Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is launching a new online gradebook program this school year for parents, students and teachers to track academic progress, attendance, class and locker assignments, testing data, homework and more. The system is called YouVue and replaces the Edline gradebook as well as an aging student information system used by CCPS for nearly 40 years. YouVue includes parent access, called ParentVUE, student access, or StudentVUE, and teacher access, called TeacherVUE.
CCPS is printing account activation letters for each parent/guardian on file for all students. Parents must pick up their account activation letter from their child’s school and provide photo identification. Parents with two or more children attending CCPS schools only need to pick up one activation letter.
Several schools are holding orientation events the week of Aug. 28 through Sept. 1. Parents can pick up their account activation letters at orientations. A list of orientation dates and times, separated by school, is posted at http://www.ccboe.com/pr/schools-plan-orientation-events-for-parents-students-2/.
Schools will also provide activation letters at open houses planned for September and October. A list of open house dates and times is posted at http://www.ccboe.com/pr/open-houses-planned-for-schools-centers-2/. Schools will also create additional opportunities for parents to pick up their activation letters.
Parents with more than one child enrolled in CCPS only need one account to access data for all of their children. Only parents with educational rights on file with CCPS will be able to access their child’s data in the new system.
Student record data, such as name, home address, school, grade level, class schedules and course history will be live in the system on Aug. 29. The gradebook feature of the system will be live for parent access in mid-September. Teacher training on the gradebook component of the program begins this month and continues after the start of the school year.
Teachers and administrators will also use the system to mainstream discipline and health records, medical conditions for students, and eligibility for participating in extracurricular activities.
CCPS will update parents with a target date for accessing the gradebook function of YouVue. Student access to the system will be available at some point prior to the second semester of the 2017-18 school year.
There are free apps in both the Apple and Android stores. Search for ParentVUE, StudentVUE or TeacherVUE by Edupoint Educational Systems. The gradebook component is also referred to as Synergy.
