Administrators: In Finance, all present-day finance transactions can be edited and/or deleted by the original author. Also, some previous-day transaction details can be edited as well.

Teachers: When going through the ReportCard grade input process, it can be helpful to see what grades the students received in previous grading periods. Therefore, FastDirect has made the names of the students clickable so that you can see that specific child’s ReportCard.

Parents: When viewing a ReportCard online, you can click the words ‘Comments’ and ‘Attendance’ to see all of the comments and attendance from the beginning of the year up to the current date.
