Congratulations! You’ve set up an account! From here, select the school or institution you would like to receive your transcript. If you're a current student, there is no fee to send your transcript electronically to any destination. If you are alumni (after July 1st of your graduating year), you will have to pay a $4.15 Parchment processing fee upfront. As your request is processed, you will receive emails informing you what stage your transcript is at in the process. You will know once the transcript is approved by Perry Lecompton High School, sent to your institution, and viewed by your institution. This feature can be found most easily under the "Track" tab on your homepage. Call Amber Grimmett at the PLHS office, or email her at email@example.com with any questions! GO KAWS!
