Grades & Exam Schedules

2019-2020 Grading Guidelines

Canvas Learning Management System

Lago Vista High School uses Canvas for delivering assignment information and communicating with our students. LVHS will be using the gradebook function in Canvas to communicate grades with parents and students.

A weekly average only will be posted in Ascender and parents can use Canvas to see the posted assignments that make up that current grade.

A few of the benefits of using the Canvas gradebook:

  • Integration with the Assignments and Quiz functions within Canvas (auto grading, streamlined feedback, peer editing).
  • Instant and improved communication with students on their assignment grades.
  • Observer view (Parent view) allows for the parent to see grades and have access to the content as well as teacher comments.
  • Uniformity of Canvas gradebook use across campus.
  • Parents can still use Ascender (formerly TxConnect) for a “big picture” look at a student’s grade and use Canvas for a detailed contextual look at student’s grades.
  • In many cases, parents can access the actual assignment turned in by their student. This eliminates student responses of “I turned it in.” and “I’m not sure why I got a bad grade.”

Checking Grades Welcome to the new Ascender Parent Portal

By acquiring an Ascender account, you will be able to view your child(ren)'s grades and attendance. Parents of Lago Vista ISD students in grades 2-12 can use Ascender to access student grades, while all Lago Vista parents (kindergarten - grade 12) can use Ascender to check and keep up with their attendance. You will receive notification of your child(ren)’s student portal id from the campus. If you no longer have access to your child(ren)’s student portal id, you can contact the campus registrar.
