Required Semester Reporting

Semester Reporting must be submitted for fall and spring semesters, no later than January 15th and June 15th. The semester reporting requirement protects all students in the school by demonstrating that PRS students receive “basic academic instruction” as required by the law. (ref. 22-33-104). There are two options for semester reporting; semester grades or semester summary.

Semester Grades When semester grades are submitted, you will check a box to verify that the required subjects have been covered or will be covered during the school year. The grade entry form provides drop-down menus for entering courses, grades, and credits. You may also add your own course names.

Letter grades are not required for grade levels K-8. For K-8, grades may be reported as Pass/Fail or Excellent/Satisfactory/etc.

High school grades (9-12) must be entered as letter grades corresponding to the grading scale provided. For PRS-approved credits, these grades are used to calculate the student’s GPA and create an official high school transcript. Unofficial high school grades may also be reported without credits if your student does not need a PRS diploma or an official transcript.

Semester Summary A semester summary may be submitted in lieu of grades for all K-8 students as well as high school students enrolled under the Cover Only option. A semester summary should include a brief description of what your child has done over the semester, and may include topics studied, projects, activities, and progress and goals in academic and non-academic areas which you consider important to record in their records. The summary is meant to back up your statement that your child has received instruction in the subjects required by law. See examples.
