The following links are intended to be resources for parents/guardians with students at Cazenovia Middle School:
Chromebook Take Home Permission Form
Completion of the Chromebook Take Home Permission form is required for students in grades 5-6 requesting to bring home a Chromebook for school use.
Extra Help for Students
Each teacher in Cazenovia Middle School provides weekly after-school help. The schedule varies depending on teacher schedules.
Any student staying after school with a teacher may take the late bus home. Arrangements to stay after school with a teacher should be made in advance. If a student is planning on staying after school for extra help, the student should be sure that a parent is aware of these plans, so the student is not missed when he or she does not arrive home at the usual time.
Parents may also directly contact teachers to request that their child receive extra help.
Since communication is one of the keys to student success, Cazenovia Central School District has instituted the use of the PowerSchool Student Information System. This web-based program includes a Parent Portal allowing parents secure access to their children’s grades, attendance and other school information. Please note that although current grades are accessible, there will be a lapse to allow teachers time to grade assignments and enter the information. The Parent Portal’s email capability allows for automated communication between school and home, as well as providing a means of emailing teachers. Parents will be issued a user name and password enabling them to access their student’s data. Usernames and passwords will be issued through the Middle School Office.

Report Card Grades
- Student performance in all subjects in the Middle School is graded by a letter grade A thru F.
- Interim Reports are available on the Parent Portal after the 5th, 15th, 25th and 35th weeks of school.
- Report Cards are posted for students after the 10th, 20th, 30th and 40th weeks of school. Grades and assignments may be viewed at any time through the Parent Portal.
- Each student will receive a Middle School Agenda. The first pages serve as the Student/Parent Handbook.
