Student comments are distributed to lower school families 4 times a school year. Homebase teachers will write student comments in the Fall, Spring & one last time at the end of the school year. Special area teachers will write comments in the winter, and once again at the end of the school year. Comments can be written directly into Veracross. If you would like to keep a copy of your comments to archive, you can draft them in Google Docs (or some other word processor) before copying and pasting them into the Veracross Employee Portal.
