IB Results for May 2017

Exam results for the May 2017 session will be released by the IB on July 5 at 12pm GMT. Students should access their results via the candidate website (candidates.ibo.org) instead of contacting their former teachers over the summer holiday. Students were given their login information to the candidate website prior to their exams in May. IB teachers can use their discretion when sharing a score with a student as they are under no obligation to do so since students can access their own scores. If a student submitted a results request (transcript sent to your university/college) to Ms. Robinson by the May 1 deadline, this has been completed. Only 24 out of 100 students completed this form. Candidates who did not meet this deadline will be required to submit all additional or late transcript requests directly to the IB by completing the transcript request form on the public website http://ibo.org/en/programmes/diploma-programme/assessment-and-exams/requesting-transcripts/ and providing payment. Candidates can view the universities that their results are being sent to by logging into the IB candidate website and clicking on the Transcripts tab. Candidates should not submit duplicate requests as this will delay the sending of results and the admissions application process. In addition candidates will be charged for any duplicate requests made. All universities that receive IB results in electronic format will be able to download the results on 5th July at 12pm GMT, providing a transcript request has been submitted. All universities that receive results in paper format will be sent the results transcripts by 31 July, with the exception of several countries such as Spain, India, Germany and Sweden where the admissions deadline is much earlier and therefore the results will be sent out earlier to meet these deadlines. You should contact your university to determine how they receive results as well as confirming they received them. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Robinson: rrobinson@pcsstn.com.

Release of Spring 2017 Report Cards

PCSS will be sending 2017 Report Cards electronically this year via School Messenger.

To ensure that we have all contact information correct in the system, there will be a delay in the release of report cards.  This is a secure process.

Please take the following steps to help us.  Check your email address in your student’s contact information in PowerSchool.  If you don’t currently have an email address on file, contact your child’s school with that address. Report cards will be sent as soon as all information is verified.

Our goal is to have all report cards released by the end of May.. If you do not have current access to email, you may send a self-addressed envelope to the school or go by the school to pick up a printed copy of the report card once they are released.

As we close the 2016-2017 school year, PCSS would like to thank all parents and guardians for your support throughout the school year.  The success of our students hinges on our partnership with our families, students, and the community as a whole.

Have a safe and wonderful summer!!

Final Exams Schedules

Good afternoon. CHS will conduct final exams Thursday and FridayOn Thursday, exams for 1st and 3rd blocks or periods 1,2,6, & 7 will occur. On Friday, exams for 2nd and 4th blocks or periods 3,4,8, & 9 will occur. Congratulations to those students who have qualified for exemption based on their attendance and academic performance. We are taking the following measures to protect assessment time and the safety of our students.
  • If students wish to leave school ​following a required exam, parents must send a note to allow students to leave prior to 12:30. Notes must be turned into the attendance office that morning to allow sufficient time for verification.
  • Once students begin a testing session, they must remain in the class until the session is over. We will not call into classrooms for student check out. We are taking this measure to assure uninterrupted assessment time.
  • We will not allow checkouts by phone.

Thank you for your assistance.
