Good-Bye Engrade, Hello Infinite Campus

Over the past few years, Stevenson has used Engrade to communicate student progress with parents.  Starting with the 2016-2017 school year, Stevenson is saying "Good-bye" to Engrade because the Hawaii State Department of Education student information system, Infinite Campus, will be replacing Engrade. Infinite Campus will provide parents with the ability to view academic information for their secondary school child(ren) through the Infinite Campus Portal.

Similar to Engrade, parents logging into the Infinite Campus Portal website will be able to the view the following real-time information about your secondary school children:

● Attendance

● Grades

● Class schedules

● Assignments

The Portal will also contain a messaging function to help you communicate with your children’s teachers. Information for all secondary school children in your family will be accessible under one login, no matter what school they attend.  Access to the portal will also be available via a mobile app for any Apple iOS or Android device.  Please look for the Parent Portal Announcement Letter and the attached Census Verification Report (sent home with students on 8/17) which will contain important information about household information.  Instructions and the codes to activate your parent accounts will be sent home after we receive the signed Census Verification Report.  If you need your codes right away, email our Curriculum Coordinator, Grace, at makaimoku-young@rlsms.com.

Students got access to their Portal accounts on Tuesday, August 23 during their Math class, if they were in school.  Students can see their Math teachers if they still need to setup their Infinite Campus Portal accounts.

Awesome News!!!

Our REACH grant application requesting, a total of $32,071, has been fully funded by the Lt. Governor's Office.  Thank you to everyone who contributed to the application process.  Special thanks goes out to our after school club teachers, our Association of Parents and Teachers (APT), and our student, Noah Toma, who took the time to invest in this grant process. If we didn't have the combined efforts of everyone, we may not have been awarded the grant!  Now our after school clubs can focus on enriching students lives instead of how to fund their basic needs.
