District Calendar

The calendar on our district website shows all of the events from the board-approved yearly school calendar, as well as many other important events that take place throughout the year. Some of the events that are important for all parents include: student holidays, report card dates, early school dismissals and testing windows.  The main calendar page has recently been updated with a new visual design and improved usability, and it's now easier than ever to see what is happening across the district whether you're on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. Calendar feeds are also available in the widely-supported iCal format, and can easily be added to your preferred calendar application on your device.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

ALL Polk County (non-charter) high schools are encouraging students to bring a device to school for the purpose of enhancing student learning. High schools are the only schools that are currently equipped with the new Aerohive access points which allow Internet access for various devices. Elementary and middle schools are still using Proxim access points, which do not. 

For more information on BYOD, go to the BYOD information page on the district's Teacher Technology Resource site. 

Recommended devices:

  • Android smart phone

What is the Parent Portal? The Parent Portal is a new on-line service offered to parents and guardians of Polk County students. The service brings together, into a single web page, information about ALL of a parent/guardian’s students.  Instead of visiting several different websites, making telephone calls or visiting the school to access records or information, the parent may access them all from any Internet-connected computer. The most important goal of the Parent Portal is to enhance district-to-school-to-home communication as outlined in the Polk County Schools Strategic Plan item 7(1): "Establish an effective system of communication linking district, school and home."

What can be found on the Parent Portal at this time?
