Online report cards can be scheduled by school administrators to be delivered to individual parents and students on specific dates. The report cards may be password-protected to address privacy issues. The report cards may be combined with progress reports and other information to keep parents informed of their children’s progress. Easy access to information can also enhance relationships between parents and teachers.

Electronic report cards can help to save on time on money spent printing, stuffing, folding and mailing report cards. This also creates more time for administrators to focus on other important school-related issues. Integrated electronic student information systems can also help save entire school districts time and money.

Electronic report cards combined with information regarding test scores and scheduling can be stored in a central location to make the information easily accessible when needed. These documents are traditionally often scattered across multiple offices or filing cabinets, making it difficult for administrators to make crucial decisions at a moment’s notice. Storing student information in an electronic format makes it easy to access prior and current information instantaneously.
