The Basics

To begin using the Parent Portal, use the information provided to you in the Welcome letter. You will find the web page address, your username, and your password in this letter. If you need a new letter, please contact the school's principal. 


If you are a parent, your username will be: lastname,firstname (all lowercase) 

If you are a student, your username will be your local student ID number.

Your password will be randomly generated through the system and printed on your welcome letter. The first time you log in, you will be prompted to change your password. Please keep track of your new password as we will not have access to it should you lose it.

Student Summary

Upon logging in through a browser, the Student Summary screen is displayed. The student's picture and name appear in the upper-left window, and the Academic Year shows on the right. Each of the tiles on this screen link to data for the selected student in the selected Academic Year. 

You can rearrange the tiles on this page so that the tiles you feel are most important for a student appear first. To move a tile, click and drag the tile where you want it to be. Some tiles turn yellow to alert you that something needs your attention. 

The Tool Bar allows you to decide which tiles show on the Student Summary screen. Click the Select Tiles botton to see a full list of available tiles. The checkbox next to each tile's name will hide or show that tile. Click Save to apply any changes made and return to the Student Summary.

Announcements

All District, School, and Class announcements display together on the Announcements screen. Announcements are separated into groups, and within each group the announcements display in reverse-chronological order. To see the details of an announcement, click the + icon in the More column.

Assignments

The first tab on the Assignments screen shows all student assignments and scores for a particular course and term. The second tab shows all upcoming and missing assignments for all classes. 

By Course Tab: 

On the By Course tab, choose a Course and Term. Details about all of the assignments for that course and term appear. The following displays for each assignment: 
Due - date assignment is to be turned in 
Assigned - date assignment is given to students 
Assignment - the assignment's abbreviated name 
Category - the type of assignment 

For students in grades 7-12, these will also display for each assignment: 
Points Possible and Points Earned - the number of points the assignment is worth, and how many points the student earned 
Percentage - the percentage 
Grade - the numeric score based on the school's grading scale 

For students in grades K-6: To see the details of your child's achievement on the performance indicators associated with the assignment, click on the + icon in the More column.

Attendance

The Attendance screen shows the times when a student was absent from or tardy to school. The Code Legend button on this screen's Tool Bar shows the explanation for each Absence Code in the grid. To see the details of an absence, click the + icon in the More column.

Course Schedule

The Course Schedule screen displays the courses in which the student is enrolled. By default, only the courses that meet today display on the grid. Use the View drop-down to choose Today, This Term, or All. Click the + icon in the More column to expand a row to see additional information, including a link to the Assignments, Attendance, and Grades screens, and a link to email the teacher.

Grades

Student grades display on the Grades screen. This screen combines grade book grades with posted end-of-term grades to give a complete overview of the student's grades. The Grades screen has two views: Traditional, where regular 0-100 numeric grades display, and Standard-Based, which shows student marks for curriculum standards. The view you have will depend upon the grade level of your child. K-6 students have the Standard-Based view and students in grades 7-12 will have the Traditional view. As we transition to a proficiency-based system of learning and reporting of student progress, all grade levels will have the Standard-Based view. 

The Traditional view: 

The Traditional view shows each course where the student has a grade and a column for each term. Grades that are underlined are links to see grade book assignment details for that class and term. The Code Legend button on this screen's Tool Bar shows the explanation for the background color of the grade. Use the + icon in the More column to see additional detail for that course, including a link to Attendance and to email the teacher. 

The Standard-Based view: 

The Standard-Based grade view shows all of the curriculum standards for a course and the student's mark on each one. This information will only be available once a grading period has ended and scores for the standards have been finalized.

RSU 64

The RSU 64 tile will take you to the District's homepage. From there you can navigate to the appropriate web pages you need. The principals' names and school phone numbers are listed on the webpage in case you have further questions.

Send Email  

Clicking Send Email opens a window to send an email to a teacher. This option will only be available to you if you have provided the District with a valid email address. Enter a Subject and type the body of the email. Use the To... button or the Change Recipients button on the Tool Bar to select staff members to receive the email. Once the message is ready, click Send to email the message. Any replies from the teacher will be sent directly back to your email address, rather than through the Tyler SIS Student 360 system.

Student Details

The Student Details screen shows all demographic and contact information for a student. Parent contact information shows in the Parent/Contact Details area at the bottom of the screen. To see the details of the contact information, click the + icon in the More column.
