Parents and students can access grades, conduct, performance, teacher comments, and upcoming assignments online. Automatic grade monitoring allows parents to receive email alerts about their child’s current progress.

All Gradelink accounts are protected by a secure login. Your school’s data gets backed up and archived off-site daily. Even if your PC fails or is stolen, data remains safe at Gradelink.

We take customer support seriously. From the first time you call us, through training, to any issues that arise, we’re here to help you each step of the way with clear, responsive phone and email support included in your plan.

WCA uses Gradelink to connect parents with their child's school experience. Being able to see grades, discipline reports, and upcoming events allow families to gain insight into the school.

Pros

Gradelink is a very simple School information System (SIS). As such, the setup time is very fast. The Gradelink support team is very helpful in getting the support that is necessary.

Cons

Because the SIS is a simple, there are not many additional features. The basic features- gradebook, lesson plans, etc. are accessible. However, the more complex features are not available.

The support we have received has been very helpful in figuring out what we can and cannot expect from Gradelink. In the main, our team has been very happy with the professionalism Gradelink has given our school over the last 3 years. We plan to continue using it.

Pros

The transcript feature, communication features, and standards tracking have been exceptionally useful for our school. The main reason we looked for a SIS was for transcript records management, and Gradelink has been perfect for us.

The Report Card has been more difficult to customize for our small school, but teachers have been able to find work-arounds.

Cons

Ease of Use is 4 stars because some teachers have had a difficult time getting the hang of it, and some help tutorials or explanations can be difficult to find until you know what you're looking for.

One feature that we have asked for several times is an app for teachers. The software is unusable on a mobile device, and there are times when a student calls with a question and the teacher is not by a computer browser to help answer that question.

Reasons for Switching to Gradelink

Gradelink had the most usable features that would integrate with our school operation. Financial accountability was another reason we chose Gradelink; it has great pricing considerations for small schools. We were also able to take advantage of a bonus discount for the setup fee.

Response from Gradelink

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review, Lynn! Input like yours helps us to understand the needs of our schools better. We look forward to serving your school for many more years to come.

Pros

I was able to figure out how to use most of the features by watching the training videos. I utilize the solutions homepage often.

Cons

The ability to pull information out of the database is not as strong as I would like for reporting functions.

Response from Gradelink

We're glad you find Gradelink so easy to use, Sharon! There's no charge for support, so please feel free to contact your friendly support rep and they'll be happy to help you with your reporting needs.

Great people with a product that has promise that still needs some refining

Pros

Parent & Student app for smartphones and amazing response times from some wonderful individuals. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] is super and really works to help you to solve your issues. Love the optional SmartSend Pro.

Cons

Billing--cumbersome and frustrating. Limited ability to tailor the reports you want. We have to download information and put it into excel and build a pivot table to get the information we need for our financial guy. Another issue is pulling data quickly. They are some reports that are easy pull and some have way to much information that is hard to tailor. I simply cannot pick a high school teacher and print out all her rosters with exactly what I want on the roster.

Response from Gradelink

Thank you, Ira; we value your feedback! It plays an important role in our ongoing product development.

Experience has been good. Customer service is excellent - respond usually in the same day, even when I am on the East Coast and they are at West.

Pros

It is very user friendly and covers everything we need. I like that you can easily correct issues in the finance area. Email and text messages are easy to set up and send out. I still have things to learn about some of the finer points - reports etc.

Cons

Some reports under financials can get quit lenthly. Wish it was on fewer pages etc. especially when running statement by category.

Response from Gradelink

Thank you for sharing how well Gradelink is working for your school, Vickie!
