  • How Will I Know About My Student's Grades?

    Posted by:

    FMS like all Baldwin County schools offers online grade reports via the INOW program. Parents are issued user name and password information upon enrollment of their students. A direct link to Inow (A+ Grades) is located on the homepage of the school website. Teachers use an "I" in INOW to indicate that students need to make up work. The "I" averages as a "0" so students need to complete their work within the required 3 day period after an absence. The "I" is replaced with a grade after the work is made up, or stands as a "0" if the work is not made up. By checking INOW on a regular basis, both parents and students can stay updated on grades and progress. Mid-Quarter progress reports are sent home with students and Quarterly Progress Reports are mailed home.
