    Parent Guidance for Viewing Student Progress in Pinnacle for Grades 3-12

    With recent policy changes to our grading practices during remote learning, traditional progress reports generated through Pinnacle will not reflect how we are measuring progress and determining mastery for the 4th Nine Weeks grading period. 

    We are not using number grades, per the Grading Guidelines for Remote Learning, so what you see in Pinnacle will look a little different this grading period. 

    The following indicators will be used to communicate progress: 

    • MS: Your student has turned in the assignment and “Met Standard”
    • NM: Your student has turned in the assignment and did not “Meet Standard”
    • Blank: Your student has not yet completed or turned in this assignment, and the teacher can not evaluate their progress.

    For questions regarding individual assignments or your student’s progress, please reach out to their teacher.


    Use the instructions below to log in to Pinnacle in order to see your student’s progress in the fourth nine weeks.
