Do I need to provide an Annual Report if I am fulfilling the requirements for online reporting?

However, having on-line reporting does not totally replace the annual report as some parents will continue not to have access to the internet. In some cases schools also send parents interim reports. It is likely that these are the ones that on-line reporting will initially replace.
