The East Baton Rouge Parish School System releases progress reports after each nine-week period at the high school level. Grades on progress reports are not final, as the official transcript grade is cumulative based on the entire semester grading period. Woodlawn High School sends progress reports home at the end of each nine-week grading period as well as at the beginning of each month.
