Campus Parent Portal
The Campus Parent Portal is a new version of the Campus Portal designed specifically for parents. It includes enhanced features to make it more useful, including a responsive design optimized for use on mobile devices and tablets. Additional tools will be added in the coming months.
Access the Campus Parent Portal from the current Portal.
The new Campus Parent Portal application and the existing Portal work in parallel; parents can switch between as needed until the End-of-Life of the Campus Portal in June 2019.
Using the Campus Parent Portal
In the Campus Parent Portal, navigate between tools in the menu on the left. On mobile devices, this menu shrinks to a "hamburger" or "three bars" icon to save space.
Click the user icon in the top right to view Notification Settings. To switch to the previous Portal, click the Parent dropdown and select Portal.
The Campus Parent Portal
If a tool is specific to a single student, such as Grades or Schedule, a student dropdown list displays in the top right corner. This dropdown list does not display for tools that are not student specific like Announcements and Payments.
Switch between students using the dropdown list in the corner.

The Quick Links section displays the websites for the districts and schools in which the student is enrolled, if available.

It's recommended that the Academic Plan be viewed on a larger device, if possible.
The Fees tool provides a list of all fees assigned to a student. Fees can include things like a lab fee for a science course, a fee for a field trip or the cost of an athletic activity. Fees that are still owed, have been paid, or were made void appear in this list, followed by the ongoing balance for these fees. The School Years dropdown list allows you to view fees assigned to the student according to the school year in which they were assigned.
Fees only display for students where the portal user (typically, the student's guardian/parent) is assigned Portal access by the school district.
From here, users can click the Pay button and go to the Payments tool.
|Payments||The Payments tool provides Portal users with the ability to pay fees/services or deposit food service money online using a major credit card, checking or savings account. This tool helps eliminate the need to send cash or checks with a student to school and provides parents a simple way to stay on top of school fees and services.|
The Food Service tool allows parents and students access to the following food service information:
The link to the Food Service tool does not display for everyone. Specific school operations and settings determine whether this link displays. Similarly, the Payments link, which allows you to electronically deposit funds into food service accounts, is only available if that feature is used by the school.
The Responsive Scheduling tool lets users view which sessions their student has selected to attend for an upcoming responsive day. Available offerings are listed for each available responsive period.
See the Responsive Scheduling article for more information.

Notification settings allow users to opt out of receiving specific kinds of notifications and establish thresholds for those they want to receive. Set thresholds to only receive notifications when a grade or score falls below the selected percentage or a lunch balance falls below the selected dollar amount. Click the arrows to change the threshold or click and drag the dot.
Notifications are not sent for any tools that have been disabled by the district. Only districts using Campus Food Service receive low balance notifications.

- The Account Security Email is the email used if a user forgets their username or password.
- Passwords can only be modified if the district has enabled Password Reset. Strong passwords are enforced, meaning that passwords should have a mix of letters, number, and characters to make them more secure.
- E-Signature PINs are used to electronically verify and sign Meal Benefit Applications. This field is only available if enabled by the district.
Access Account Settings to update basic account information.
