The CPS CPS online grade book is coming soon. I have spoken to teachers and students at CPS schools where the online grade book will be used soon. Most teachers are glad to finally get a useful tool, but fear that training may be slow in coming and that the grade book may not work (like IMPACT!) Students say they will not tell parents/guardians that the online grade book is available to view students’ attendance and grades.

Doesn’t that sound like what CPS said after IMPACT crashed on the first day of school?
