Sending Email from your Gradebook

SENDING EMAILS FROM YOUR GENESIS GRADEBOOK

NEW ENHANCEMENT TO THE GENESIS GRADEBOOK:   you can now send emails to parents and students, directly from your Genesis gradebook.

Emails that parents/students have reported to the school are displayed in your Gradebook-Contacts page.  If you have collected additional emails, you can enter them in your gradebook too.

SETUP:

  1.  Check your Gradebook Profile:  Go to Gradebook—Home—User Profile and make sure our email address is correct (if is not, please contact Kathy Sobeck).  You must use your Fair Lawn email address

  2. Set up a CONTACT LIST of email address:  GradebookSetupEmail & Progress Report tab.  Choose the class to create the email list from, using the drop down menu (top-center of page)

  3.  Type a NAME for your list in the EMAIL LIST NAME box (bottom) and select those groups you want in the email list:  Guardians (for parent emails), Gradebook Email (to include emails you manually added to the gradebook) and/or Student Emails (for student emails).

     NOTE:  If you want to create a PARENT ONLY list, you’d only click Guardians

  1. Click ADD EMAIL LIST box

  2. Once the list is created, you can view/edit the contacts:  Click the VIEW icon (middle icon on right)

  3. You can check or uncheck names to modify your list, as needed.

  • To manually add email information, click the Student’s Name to open the Student info tab

  • NOTE:  If a parent or student email is manually added, it will only add to the Gradebook Email list (make sure you check that in #3 above).
