The Transcripts screen allows users to generate and print transcripts for a select subset of student defined in the Student Search module. Depending on profile permissions, users also have the ability to customize transcripts in deciding what information to display, such as letter grades, course numbers, teachers, and more.

Student Search

1. In the Grades menu, click Transcripts.


This navigates to the Transcripts screen, where a Student Search module will display in addition to More Search Options.

2. If searching for specific students by name or student number, type the information directly into the Student Search text box.


To generate report cards for all students, leave the Student Search text box empty.

3. For a more advanced search and the ability to define a specific subset of students, click More Search Options. In the example shown, Gradelevel 11 has been selected; therefore, report cards will be generated only for students in 11th grade.


Apply as many search options, as needed.

See Searching for Students for details about conducting and saving student searches.

4. To run the parameters against a Student Group, select the applicable group from the corresponding pull-down.

5. Select the Include Inactive check box to include students who do not have an active enrollment record at the selected school or all schools (if Search All Schools is selected).

6. Select the Previous Years check box to include previous year of inactive data in your search, when Include Inactive is enabled.

Note: What displays here is controlled by System Preferences (Setup > System Preferences > School Preferences/Default School Preferences > Grading tab) for K-12, CTE, etc.

Options displayed (active and inactive) may vary from user to user depending on profile permissions (Users > Profiles > Grades tab). Some profiles may have View and Edit rights, while others may only have View rights; therefore options may be predetermined via the district's ability to Save Settings as Default.

8. Select the desired Letterhead Template from the pull-down. This is very important to choose correctly before printing, as it will impact the display of the transcript. If this is an official printed transcript that is being sent to another academic institution, typically it will be sent on an official letterhead that has been established. This letterhead contains required state demographic fields, and should always be used when printing Transcripts. Note: Letterhead Templates are set up by the district (Setup > Letterhead Templates).

Select the Industry Certifications check box in the Transcript Options section and CTE Grouping to include a column on CTE transcripts for industry certifications, which displays any passed certifications for the program on the transcript.  Note: If the certification is tied to a course on either the student’s schedule or the industry certification table, the certification displays on the row with the appropriate course. If the passed certification is on the table and not tied to a course, then it will display on a row with a course in that school year.


10. Select the check box for the marking periods you want to see included on the student(s) transcript from the Marking Period section.

Notice that this is a required section, and a selection must be made.

The Final Grades, GPA, & Class Rank screen uses the same font when transcripts are printed if you click Save Settings as Default to save the font size used.

14. Click Save Setting as Default to save the settings and have them available each time transcripts are printed. Note: The Letterhead Template selected determines where default settings saved are being stored. For example, Secondary Transcript has been selected; therefore, the default settings saved will apply to that transcript only.


Save Settings as Default is an important tool when it comes to users who have View only permissions because what is set here by the district will determine what displays on transcripts generated by other users.

If your district has enabled transcript printing by students and parents, a Letterhead Template must first be setup for them via Setup > Letterhead Templates. Then, you must select default settings and save them here in order to determine what data displays on parent and/or student transcripts printed via Student/Parent Portal > My Information/My Child > Final Grades & GPA.
