School districts all over the U.S. are beginning to use software that allows parents to check their children’s grades online.
Santa Ana Unified provides a software program to teachers that is optional. Those that use it are able to provide information about grades and attendance online, on their respective teacher portals, which you find by going to the respective school website.
