It's being called a step toward creating a stronger relationship between teachers and parents.
"It's a new system where teachers will have access to our students' grades, attendance and so on, so parents will see a little difference in report cards," says Superintendent of
Leon County Schools Bill Montford
He's talking about a new Internet-based report card system called Genesis.
"At this point it's real convenient because teachers can work on report cards at school or at home if they have Internet access," says Gilchrist Elementary School Principal Scotty Crowe.
The new format will be for elementary school students only, next week, but in the future, all students will see the report cards.
Administrators say in the future parents and students will be given a personal identification number. With that number, families will be able to access grades, attendance and more.
