Parent Portal Information

Parents are encouraged to create a Parent Portal access account, which will allow them to update student information in the District’s database, review student attendance by period and see an unofficial transcript of their child’s progress.

Information regarding creating a Parent Portal account can be found at: or by going to the district’s main web site and finding the Parent Portal link under Parent Links. Instructions for creating an account can be found by clicking here or by following the information that is available on the district’s website under the Parent Portal link.

Please note that 3 pieces of information are required in order to create the account.

  1. Your home phone number
  2. Your student’s 7-digit identification number
  3. A Verification Pass Code (The student ID number and Verification Pass Code are printed on their report card)

A letter containing this information will also be mailed to parents without portal accounts prior to registraton should a report card not be available. Assistance is also available from the front office once it reopens on August 13, 2013.

Students should also create a Student Portal account so that they have access to the same information and records as the Parent Portal. Students need their seven digit student ID number, an email address (must be different than their parents’), and the unique verification code that was used to create the Parent Portal account. Beginning next school year, students will use their Student Portal account to complete the registration process and choose their classes. It will be essential for students to have a valid Student Portal account to properly register for courses in the future. Students will not have the ability to change the data that parents enter in the Parent Portal. Information regarding opening a Student Portal account is available at .
