Parent Portal is a statewide student information system that gives parents and students access to real-time information including attendance, grades, and assignments. With Parent Portal, powered by Pearson's PowerSchool application, everyone stays connected: Students stay on top of assignments, parents are able to participate in their child's progress, and teachers can instantly share information from their gradebook with parents and students. Families with multiple students can also set up their accounts to view all of their students at one time, with one login.
