Downloading Your Marks Classes

  • Name the folder using the word Marks and your first initial and your last name. EX: Marks-lkoudelka Q1-2007-08

  • Open CLC by clicking on the “First Class” icon
  • Log on using your personal User Name and Password
  • Double click on Mailbox
  • Open the E-Mail containing the Marks classes sent from the Data Clerk. When you open your e-mail your classes will be an attachment. They are named as they are in MacSchool and the names cannot be altered if MacSchool is to "read" your data when you submit it to our Data Clerk. If you have made any changes to the name NO grades will appear!
  • Highlight the classes in the attachment and drag them to your desktop.
  • Drag them into the Marks folder.

Opening/Closing the Class


  • Open the Marks Program first. The Chancery Opening screen will appear when you launch the program. Click once on the screen it will disappear and the Marks Program will open.

  • To close a class, click on the small box in the upper left-hand corner of the class’s window or go to FILE/CLOSE. If you have made any changes to the class, the computer will ask if you want to save the changes. It is always a good idea to save changes as you make them, and never rely on the computer to ask.

  • Navigate to you Marks folder>select the Points & Credits
  • The Points & Credits Screen will open and should contain the HCPSS grading scale.
  • Close the Points & Credits Screen by clicking on the upper left hand box.
