  • Aeries Communications - Aeries will no longer attempt to connect to SignalKit or SSO to SignalKit.

Thank you for giving us the Avery 6490 Grade Transcript Labels Report. This is something my district has been waiting for.  I cannot find documentation for client or web for it though.  Can you tell me what the "Use Special Format" check box is for?

Shelley, Thank you for bringing this to our attention.  The document has been published, and the link is now available in our Revision Notes above.  The standard format will print the Course, Mark, Credits Attempted and Credits Earned for each course, Semester GPA, Total Credits Attempted and Total Credits Earned.  The "Use Special Format"  will print the student's Course, Mark, Credits Earned for each Course, Cumulative GPA, and Semester GPA.
