The Parent Portal
The Parent Portal
This online resource will provide parent/guardians with valuable information and data about your child’s academic performance and progress.
This system allows you to view:
- Attendance Record
- Grades by Subject
- Test & Quiz Scores
- Homework Assignments
- Student Schedules
Please be assured that your child’s academic records are secure and private. Access to this information is restricted by your secure log on.

- Access the portal periodically – check each subject once a week.
- Monitor your child’s progress and use this knowledge to show a genuine interest in their academic performance.
- Use this information as a way to starts a meaningful dialog with your child. Example: Describe what you learned? What did you find challenging?
- Value what your child is learning more than grades they are earning.
- Ask your child how often they review the portal. Share your use of the portal with them openly and honestly.
- The portal is not a substitute for face-to-face conversations with our teachers.
- Establish a homework time, review assignments together.
- Encourage and support goals for your child’s continuous improvement
We suggest parents/guardians avoid
- Micromanaging your child’s progress by checking the portal too frequently.
- Communicating grades before the teacher has reviewed them with your child.
- Overreacting to a less than desirable score or grade.
