Here is our September Newsletter for the High School and Junior High:
Parent and Student Portal
Ash Grove School District has a new student information system this year: TeacherEase. You may access a brief tutorial for the system here: Parent Portal Guide
Student schedules and demographic information are now available on the new student information system, although historical grades are not yet imported. Once the new system is completely setup, parents and students may log into the parent portal throughout the year to view schedules, grades, attendance, and lunch account balance information among other things. If you would like a paper copy of quarter or semester grades, you may contact the high school office to get one printed. If you are new to the district and need to set up the inital login for the parent portal, contact the high school office at 417-751-2330.
The login link for the new student information system is: teacherease.com
MAP and EOC Score Reports
The MAP/EOC Individual Student Reports (IRS's) from the 2022-2023 school year have been received and will be sent home with your child's 1st Quarter grade cards. If you would like to receive your child's ISR prior to the end of the 1st quarter, please email your child's building principal once school begins and it will be sent home with your child.

Seniors and Parents of Seniors: October is the time to complete the FAFSA!
After October 1 each year, the FAFSA, the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" opens for students to apply for federal student aid. Any graduating senior who is planning to attend college next year should complete the FAFSA as this is a major tool that colleges use to determine a student's financial need and eligibility for federal aid as well as certain financial need-based scholarships. This is not a loan - the grant money you receive from this does not have to be repaid, and it is free to apply. The sooner you fill this out the better. Why? Because if you fill it out sooner, you may be able to get more grants (money) that will help you pay for college. Even if there's the slightest chance you may go to college next year, you need to fill this out.
To fill out the FAFSA, here's what you will need to bring:
For more information or for help in completing the FAFSA, contact the Counseling Office at 417-751-9616 or 417-751-9605.
