Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, along with other large districts, continue to experience technical difficulties with PowerTeacher gradebooks. Some teachers cannot electronically save records due to a computer problem affecting about 600 students. Pearson, vendor for the Homebase North Carolina product, has acknowledged the technical problem and plans to apply update on November 16th-17th weekend.
Report cards had been scheduled for distribution on November 15th. Due to the difficulties with storing grades, report cards will be issued on November 22, 2013 for all grades except K-2. CMS K-2 report cards will be distributed as scheduled on November 15. This decision aligns with other large districts across the state with similar issues with saving grades, causing a delay in report card distribution dates.
Thank you for your patience while this work is completed as quickly as possible.
