ES Quarter 1 Academic Feedback Form Process

"Regular" Synergy report cards will automatically be posted in ParentVUE for quarters 2, 3 and 4. With the Academic feedback form for Quarter 1 being a PDF and not the report card, the following steps should be used to (1) complete the form and (2) send it securely through Canvas to the student and his/her family.  Students & families will be able to access their QT1 Academic Feedback form through the STUDENT'S Canvas InBox on their student-issued device




Two Steps - 

  1. Download form to complete for each student (as in years past)
  2. Send to students through Canvas for each student.


Download & Fill Out Academic Feedback Form: (same as in years past)


1. Open the "ES Quarter 1 Academic Forms (fillable)" Folder in Google Drive. 

2. Open the folder for your school and download the PDF's for the languages you need. Control click on the file and select "download" from the menu that appears.

3. On your desktop, make a new folder called "Q1 Report Cards" or something similar.

4. Drag your Academic Feedback Form PDF(s) from step 2 into this new folder.


5. Open the PDF. It should open in the "Preview" app, but if not, close the window, control click on the PDF and select "open with" and then "preview."

6. For now, only fill out the "Teacher Name" and "Grade" fields since they will be the same on each student's PDF.
