The grades portion of my website has
been published from Sept 1999 to June 2006.
The students have been identified by their School District I.D. number.
Any parent fearing a privacy violation has only to email me.
No parent has asked me to take there son or daughter
off my website.
My website has posted
Attendance, Class Work, Homework,
Test Scores, Grades, and solutions to problems in 18 different chapters.
It has been updated every two weeks.
Out of fear of litigation by the Federal government, under the Federal Education Right to
Privacy Act the School District has ordered me to take down the grades
portion of my website.
School District would like to substitute FamilyNet, http://phila.schoolnet.com
FamilyNet is has had severe errors but has improved.
a] It has the letter grades and not numbers.
b] It reports the report card grades after they are
(If you have the report card why do you need FamilyNet?)
c] The grades do not include quarter four.
d] It does not report
Class Work, Homework, or Test Scores.
So students do not know what they missed or have to make up!
e] It did not report attendance.
Fortunately, Girls High provides teachers the option
of sending out interim reports four time a year.
That is, parents can get feedback four to eight time a year: 4 report cards
and possible 4 interim reports.
