How do I view and e-sign my student's report card? 

Once report cards are generated at mid-term and at the end of a quarter by your student's teacher, they are available to view in the 'Documents' section of your student's profile. Login to Sycamore. Hover mouse over student picture and select ‘Documents’.  A pop-up box will appear with all student documents.  You will see a red pencil next to current report card to be signed.  Click on the document title and the pop up box will appear.  Using a mouse (or finger on a tablet), sign your name on the line and SAVE. A typed name is also required. You can also download or print from upper right.
