Letter to Parents Regarding Student Transcripts

Dear Senior Parents and Students,

The Sweetwater Union High School District in the summer of 2016 transitioned to a new student information system called Infinite Campus. Throughout this transition, the Informational Technology and Curriculum and Instruction departments worked closely with school sites to develop a customized transcript for SUHSD students. The district’s previous transcript contained numerous elements that took years to develop and were continually modified.

Some parents have shared their concerns about a potential loss of data with the transition to Infinite Campus. As the new system has been put into operation, we have introduced new elements of data. Throughout each of these stages of implementation, validation of information has occurred to ensure accuracy. Infinite Campus houses all the pertinent information and data required for accurate transcripts.

We have established a transcript that is accepted by colleges and universities that includes weighted and unweighted grade point averages, total credits attempted and total credits earned, graduation date, detailed list of all course taken, and citizenship grades. Your child’s high school is able to provide a copy of the official transcript through the Registrar’s office.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Sincerely,

Ana Maria Alvarez
Assistant Superintendent, Teaching and Learning
