Edline provides online access to GradeQuick, the county grade book program. Students and parents receive Edline activation codes after the child enters a new school. Schools usually send the activation codes home to the new incoming class about two weeks after the beginning of school. After that point, parents must contact the school to receive an activation code. The central office cannot provide activation codes to parents or students. In the case of divorced/separated parents, both parents can have different activation codes if they both have court approved access to the child.
The instructions for setting up Edline will be sent home with the activation code. They may also be found in the File Cabinet under Parent Information below.
Please remember to update your Edline profile if you have a change in your e-mail address. Edline prompts users to verify e-mail information at the beginning of each month. Edline account names and passwords can be received by e-mail if the user forgets them.
School Messenger provides telephone and e-mail notification of school closings, emergencies and announcements to parents. In order to receive calls from School Messenger, your current home and/or mobile phone must be on file at your child’s school.

Advanced Placement Program
Taking Advanced Placement courses in high school can send a powerful message to colleges that you’re ready for them. A number of studies show that students who take AP courses are much more likely to complete college. In an effort to strengthen our AP program, Putnam County Schools has enacting new AP initiatives.
Students who take AP courses will earn a weighted grade for each course. Weighted grades make it possible for students’ grade point averages to rise above a 4.0.
Each student enrolled in an AP course will take the corresponding exam for the course. AP exams allow students to gain credit or advanced standing in college.
· AP exams are scored from 1 to 5, with a score of 3 considered passing at many colleges. Putnam County students who earn a 3 or better on an exam will be refunded the full cost (approximately $83).
· Putnam County Schools will be administering the PSAT exam to all sophomores. The PSAT includes access to the College Board’s MyRoad which is a FREE personalized career and college search service. Also with PSAT, schools can use the AP Potential program to identify students with potential for success on AP exams.
Students who would like to take an AP course can see a counselor to enroll or to ask questions. Please feel free to visit The College Board for more Advanced Placement information.
