Module: Academics
Effective: August 6, 2020
Affects: All schools
Action Required: Review your academic document configuration to prepare for publishing them at the end of your first grading period this coming year. See the timeline below. 

Coming August 6, we are rolling out a new way to publish academic documents — generally, report cards and progress reports — at the end of each grading period. This new process gives you significantly more control over how and when you publish your documents to the parent and student portals. You will use this new process when you publish your first progress report or report card in the 2020-2021 school year. Here is a brief timeline of how we are rolling this out:

  • Friday, July 31: We are letting you know that there will be a new academic document publishing workflow that you will need to use this coming school year. 
  • Thursday, August 6: We will turn on the new "Academic Documents" homepage for you, at which point you can review the default configuration and begin making edits as desired. We will also have documentation available.
  • Tuesday, August 11, 3:00 PM (Eastern Time, GMT-4): You are invited to a webinar with product manager Thad White.  He'll walk you through the new Academic Documents homepage, make some workflow recommendations, and take your questions.
  • Monday, August 24: The actual publishing process will be enabled. Until this date, published documents will work the way they always have. Beginning today, you will need to use the new workflows to publish progress reports and report cards to the parent and teacher portals. 
  • End of August: We will have a new course available in Veracross University to teach you everything you'll need to know about the new features. We will also schedule several live sessions in Veracross University about the new academic document publishing workflow.
