School Year Transcript Information for Current/Former Graduates
If you need a transcript for job related searches, college/university placement, please use the following e-mail address. Be sure to clearly type the name of the student, year of graduation and where the transcript should be sent. We will also make a copy available to you that incudes the embossed seal and signatures if desired. We hope to have all copies digitized during the school year which will make it much easier for us to find your transcript! Currently, by law we keep all records 99 years! Yes, we do have them from "way back"! All handwritten of course but somewhat legible! E-mail us with your request to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. (During summer months, this may take 3-5 days due to vacations/work schedules.) During the school year requests are usually processed on the same day.
Everyday Test Success
Different kinds of tests call for different strategies. Share these ideas with your son or daughter! Better yet, have them read the short tips below.
Multiple Choice: On a reading test, skim questions before reading the passages they accompany. This will let the reader know what to focus on as they read. Try solving math problems before looking at possible answers. If the solution is among the choices, it's likely to be right!
Short Answers: Read each question carefully so you know what you're being asked. Write neatly and keep your answers brief, clear and to the point. Don't leave any answers blank. Many teachers give credit for partial answers. Math teachers require students to show their work. That way, they can point out where a mistake was made.
Essay: Make a quick outline to organize your thoughts before you write. Cross off each idea as you add it to your essay. Leave a few minutes to proofread your work and be sure you've answered the question completely.
