How are differences created?
A grade difference is created when a grade is entered or changed after the posting window has closed
A student's schedule is changed
A new student comes in with transfer grades
The Grade Difference report does not always have to be blank. Understanding your differences is key in determining whether it should be corrected.
RESEARCH YOUR DIFFERENCES
What is the student's start date?
Are they coming from a school outside of the district?
Did the Registrar post grades that need to be accepted by teachers?
Look to see if there was a recent schedule change and review transactions
Did student's teacher post after the window was closed or forget to post a grade?
Did the teacher make a change to an existing grade?
Follow up to ensure grades get posted onto Skyward or are accepted by teachers into the gradebook
