    Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, the Effingham County School District will no longer mass print report cards and progress reports.  Parents will need to access the grade report information in one of two ways: 1) Via the Infinite Campus Parent Portal or 2) By requesting that hard copies of the grades be sent home upon each release of progress reports and report cards.  If you need access to the parent portal or need hard copies to be sent home due to a lack of internet service, please print out the ECMS Parent Portal Information Form, complete it, and return it to the school with your student.  Thank you!
