The length of time student report cards remain online is determined by each individual school district. Student report cards are sometimes posted on a school portal such as FamilyLink for current students and parents to access with a login and password while students are enrolled.
Some school districts restrict student access to online report cards and the school's portal once they have graduated or transferred from the district. Online report cards are posted so that parents and students can track the student's progress throughout the school year. Teachers have the option to also provide comments or suggestions on the report card for students and parents to view.
