School releases grades unintentionally online

Due to a technical error, the school’s website displayed students’ first semester grades early through unofficial transcripts Jan 22.

The premature release was due to a glitch with the system, upper school dean Celso Cardenas said. Teachers have a window between submitting grades and students receiving them so that they can make changes, Cardenas said.

Students said that although they understand why teachers and administration are upset with the release, they think that seeing their grades beforehand was helpful and stress-relieving.

“It was nice not having to wait to see grades. Waiting is worse than seeing them unexpectedly like this,” Naomi Ogden ’20 said.
