Research shows that students do better when their parents are informed and involved in their education. Parent Access is a Web-based tool to help parents stay informed and engaged with their students' education. Parent Access allows parents to view their students' attendance as well as customized contact lists for their students' teachers, beginning the second week of school.
The Parent Access home page lists your student or students. One log-in links parents to all students in their family. The home page lists all of your student’s teachers, providing email links to contact those teachers. If those teachers have websites, links are provided.
In the Links for You section, the following links are available for all parents:
- Student Information – Confirm the contact information, emergency contacts, and health notes on file with the school. See class schedules and attendance. For secondary students, term grades and class rankings are also available.
- Lunch Account Balances – Check your student’s lunch account balance. New this year: you can add money to your student’s account balance via credit card through this secure site.
- Volunteer application – Parents can fill out the application to volunteer at their student’s school online. All volunteers must be approved before volunteering in the schools. Instructions are now online.
For elementary parents only:
- Grades and Assignments - is available in the Student Information section, called Family Access.
For middle and high school parents only:
- StandardsScore – View a record of the assignments and grades of each of your students.
For senior high parents only:
- Graduation Requirements – Tracks a high school student’s progress toward completion of graduation requirements.
The site also features links to district and school websites.
