Some Common Questions:
Q: Do I need an Aspen login to use the app?
A: Yes! If you don't know your credentials, ask your school administrator.

A: Currently, the following districts are fully supported:
- Public schools in Washington, DC
- Chicago Public Schools
- Boston Public Schools
- Most school districts in Massachusetts
- And more!
Additional school districts can be added easily. However, due to the flexibility of the Aspen system, not all features may be available for custom Aspen systems.
Q: How do I know what my Aspen Id is?
A: Your Student Aspen Id is provided by your school district.
For Boston** and DC** - It's usually 6 to 7 digits such as: 12345567. Parents accounts are usually email addresses.
For CPS** - Use the first part of your cps.edu email.
Contact your school administrator to obtain credentials.
Q: How often are grades updated?
A: Grades are updated by teachers periodically. When they do, students can see the updates right away using the App.
Q: Is this app officially supported by my School District?
A: No! Grade Corner was created independently by a frustrated parent who had two children attending public schools in Washington, DC. Since I had a lot of time on my hands, I created Grade Corner to help other students and parents. So I am continuing to work hard to make grade, attendance, and tasks information accessible to all student.

Ratings and Reviews
Chicago Public Schools Should Learn from This App
Parents and students are normally stuck with a system called Aspen. It looks like it was built in 1998. They must not have a UX team. Anything would be better than the interface they make us wade through right now, on phone apps and desktops. Horrible.
This app though? Bright, cheery, responsive, easy to rotate between kids. Easy to check every day. Login is even faster than the school system’s site and it’s the same authentication procedure! Every parent I know that finds this app is so happy to not have to use Aspen for anything but absence reporting. All the extra admin stuff isn’t available but it makes the core functions easy to find. It’s great!
Two things that need improvement in this app: the schedule tab never shows a schedule even though my high schooler and elementary schoolers have them, and attendance only displays entries by days but not the running total for the quarter, semester or year. I need that as much as grades some times of year. Please add those fields/values. When you do, you could monetize this app.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the kind and thoughtful response! We love hearing constructive criticism from parents and students. Adding a running total of attendance is absolutely possible and a great feature to add. We'll add it to an upcoming update.
For the schedule information, turns out Aspen does not provide schedule information for parent logins (I know, right?) You can verify this by logging into the web version of Aspen and viewing each student's info. Thus, the app shows a blank screen for schedule. A possible workaround is to add each student's account to the app (the app supports multiple accounts). Not great, but the best we can offer.
As always, if you have additional requests or comments please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
The app is very efficient and accessible, as well you don’t have to constantly sign in to check your grades. This is really useful especially when I just want to check them once and then not again until the next day, and I like the feature where it gives you your schedule for the day the previous days and whichever day you would like. Also, the feature to see your attendance is really useful so when I get an absence I can just email a teacher.
Honestly it’s great
I’ve used this app for a little while now because a friend recommended it to me and I gotta say it’s extremely easy to check my grades fast and to see what assignments I’m missing and Ik I sound like a total bot rn but it actually helps a lot it even has like choices of what colors to make your classes so it looks aesthetic and has a little pigeon that waves to you as the loading screen lol as a senior in highschool that needs to keep up with any and every assignment I have this is extremely useful.
