Transcripts

You now have the ability to send it directly from your GreenLight Locker. Garland ISD has partnered with GreenLight credentials which will allow students/families to instantly and securely share academic credentials and records with educational institutions, employers, and the military.

Current 12th graders may begin enrollment and immediate use of the system. If students are under 18 years of age, a parent/guardian must also register and sign a FERPA release form to give authorization. The parent/guardian must use the same enrollment code as the student.

Please view the videos below for instructions on how to register on Greenlight, including how to look up your enrollment code:

How to look up your enrollment code

How to share your transcript using GreenLight (for students)

Once you’ve viewed the videos, ENROLL using the link below.  The child/student must create an account on GreenLight using the enrollment code:

  1. Look up the enrollment code at https://greenlightlocker.com/register by clicking on “I’m a student” and then selecting “I am looking for an enrollment code”.
  2. Copy the enrollment code and click on “I’m a parent/guardian” or “I’m a student”.
  3. Paste the enrollment code and fill out the other required information to validate your identity.
  4. Follow the prompts to complete your registration.

Remember that parent registration is only needed for students UNDER 18.

If you are still having issues, try the Garland ISD College Access webpage.

NOTE FOR EXISTING GREENLIGHT LOCKER ACCOUNTS:
If you already have a Greenlight locker account through Dallas College or the Texas Bridge Program, do not register again. Use the enrollment code that you have already been assigned. Your GISD transcript has been added to your existing account.

If you continue to receive Greenlight error messages, take a screenshot of the error message and email it to ljoneshuggins@garlandisd.net

Cyberbullying

What to know:

  • Never respond to harassing or rude comments.
  • Save or print the evidence.
  • Talk to your parents or guardian if you are harassed; get help reporting this to your ISP, school, or local law enforcement.
  • Respect others online.
  • Only share your password with your parent or guardian.
  • Change your passwords often.
  • Use privacy settings to block unwanted messages.
  • Think before posting or sending photos - they could be used to hurt you.
  • Contact the site administrator if someone creates a social networking page in your name.

What to report:

  • Anyone you don't know who asks you for personal information, photos, or videos.
  • Inappropriate or obscene material from people or companies you don't know.
  • Misleading URLs on the Internet that point you to sites containing harmful or inappropriate materials rather than what you were looking for.
  • Anyone who sends you photos or videos containing obscene content of individuals 18 and younger (the possession, manufacturing, or distributing of child pornography is illegal)
  • Anyone who asks you to meet in person for sexual activities (no one should be making sexual invitations to you online – and it’s an especially serious crime for adults to do it).
  • If any of the above happens to you or a friend, tell an adult you trust and report it to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's CyberTipline at https://report.cybertip.org.
