Saint Mark’s uses Cornerstone for attendance, grading, and so much more.
Cornerstone is great tool for teachers and a great resource for students and parents. Specific features include:
- Assignments: Teachers post assignments with descriptions and links online, making them accessible from home or anywhere the Internet is available. Assignment calendars help students organize homework and manage their time for long-term projects.
- Grades: Teachers record and post grades in real time, which provides an instant and current indicator of late or missing assignments. Parents and students are always aware of students’ grades on individual assignments and progress in each subject area.
- Lunch Account and Attendance: Cornerstone is used for daily attendance and lunch count and can be updated throughout the school day. All teachers and administrators know which students are absent, tardy, and can view any appointments students may have that day. The system also keeps a quarterly and yearly record of student attendance, giving us the most accurate information possible.
