Due date for the video highlights will be April 21, 2017 but please turn them into Mr. Gordon immediately after the events if possible.

There are two ways to order a transcript.  Each way serves a different purpose.

If you need a transcript sent to a college or NCAA or a similar agency, then you will need to log on to: www.parchment.com   to order transcripts to be sent.  The request is then forwarded to SoHi.  After processing,   it then goes through cyberspace… rather than the US mail… to get to its destination, which is much faster!  ALL transcripts that are headed for NCAA, colleges, etc. have to be processed this way!

FINAL TRANSCRIPTS!    A final transcript is one that shows your second semester grades…  If you order your transcript when we are IN second semester,,, you will need to make sure you choose “next grading period” when you go on to Parchment…  that way your transcript request will wait until the grades are in at the end of the year before it is sent.

~~~

If you need a transcript for scholarships, scholarship folders, insurance, etc., then, you will need to see Mrs. Treider in the Counseling Office.
