Discus: Parents Forum: 2004 Archive - Part 2: Verifying the transcripts may be a good idea

Our school does not sell 'official transcripts' to students. They do sell 'Student Trascripts'. We ordered one because we were curious to see how a transcript looks like. We discovered that there were some errors/ommision in the transcripts. Just for FYI.

Everyone should verify their child's high school transcript annually. DS's had another student's picture on it (oops), and DD's (as you have heard) has a wacky weighted GPA (the school is now in the process of "adjusting" their weighted GPA formula, I'm told).

We've discussed this before, and this is the first thing I encourage parents and students to do. I know of 3 students Last year (mine included) whose SAT/ACT scores were wrong on their transcripts. And there was another error that was repeated on all 450 transcripts. Thanks for the reminder.
