Every school year is divided into two parts, at the end of which a Zeugnis (school report) is received. The Zeugnis enables parents to follow their kid's progress. It must be signed by a parent and shown to the teacher by the kid. A Zeugnis may have a general description of a kid's activities in writing, or a list of subjects with grades. It also informs parents about missed lessions and other absences.
