This September, Gradespeed invited HISD to join its new paperless classroom management tool: an intuitive app called GradePro. While it has received little publicity through the HISD website, it is a popular and efficient option for both teachers and students to record grades and attendance, check scores, receive notifications, along with many other Premium robust features (Premium costs $1.99 on the App store).
