Checking grades

powerschool VS Canvas:

We use two grading systems at Holman. Canvas is where you will find all the daily grading of assignments with teacher feedback. PowerSchool is where you will find grades at the end of the term. The chart below shows what you will find in each.


Pirate Academy is a unique program that requires a unique grading system. The program is based on Competency Based Grading instead of letter grades. Because of this, Pirate Academy uses Empower to track student progress. Canvas is still used for Electives/PE/ and Algebra and Powerschool still has a place for certain things too. The handout below explains the difference.
