Grade Page in Parent Portal

All grades are published on the Parent Portal. Only the end-of-year report cards are printed.

To access the Parent Portal, you will need to setup your guardian account.  If you are having difficulty accessing the portal, please contact parenthelp@ctsdnj.org

Once you have access to the Parent Portal clicking on the Grades and Attendance link in the left-hand menu will take you to the page below (click image to enlarge):

This page provides an overview of all of your child's grades for the current year, by marking period. You may print this page by clicking the printer icon in the upper right-hand corner. In addition you may click on the teacher's name to launch your computer's email client and compose a message. Note the Standards Grades tab at the top of the grade sheet. That is discussed below and, while used in all grades, it is especially important for kindergarten through second grade, as those students do not receive numeric grades.

Clicking on any of the scores in the Grades and Attendance tab will take you to details for that grade, including teacher comments and individual assignment scores. Note that comments from homeroom teachers can be found by clicking the dash ("-") where the homeroom grade would appear. Students do not receive a grade for homeroom, but teacher narratives can be found in the comments section.

Detail pages for a homeroom class and a math class are shown below. To return to the general grade sheet, click theGrades and Attendance link at left.

Note that in grades kindergarten through second there will not be any numeric scores (read the section on Standards Grades below) but the homeroom teacher narratives are accessed via the teacher comments, as above. Clicking on the "-" for the homeroom and appropriate marking period will let you see the narrative.

Narrative

Clicking on the Standards Grades tab at the top of the screen will take you to a listing of all the standards indicators. These standards are used to describe developing skills in the lower grades, and are used to indicate effort and conduct at all levels. Below is sample of the Standards Grades screen.
