Once in the portal, you will have access to all your information. 

Menu

On the left hand side of the page, you have a menu bar.  The menu allows you to handle your student's account.  It gives you the ability to check your student's grades, attendance, schedule, etc., as well as pay for your student's instructional fees or put money in their lunch account.

Message Center

The Message Center is selected by default. Its contents are divided into 2 sections:  announcements and Inbox. The Inbox displays student related messages ordered from newest to oldest.  Possible messages include missing assignment notices, failing grade notices, attendance notices, behavior notices, surveys and general information notices. Please be sure to check your inbox regularly. 

 
Calendar
 

The Calendar tab displays calender events for each school in which a student is enrolled. The calendar defaults to the current month but users are able to view previous months and future months.

The Course Schedule lists the student's classes in each period and term, along with the time and location the class meets. If a school uses a rotating day or alternating day schedule, the day the class meets will be listed. Parents can use this tool to find out the classes the student is taking along with the teacher's name and room number.

 

Attendance

The Attendance tab of the Campus Portal allows parents to track student attendance using a variety of summary options and attendance views. The Attendance Tab can be accessed from the Student section of the navigation pane, after a specific student has been chosen from the Switch Student menu. This section provides a variety of summary and detail options for viewing attendance information. This section is updated in real time, as the teacher or attendance clerk enters daily or period attendance.  The attendance calendar at the top of the attendance screen provides color-coded absence and tardy information for the selected student. The current day is outlined in blue. Clicking the black arrow icons will allow the user to view previous and future months. All instructional days can be selected. Non-instructional days are grayed out and cannot be selected.

Food Service

The Food Service screen allows parents and students access to the following food service information:

  • Current account balances
  • Transactions (food item purchases, account deposits of cash, check and credit card, when enabled)
  • Account history (historical transaction records)
  • Account adjustments (debits/credits)
  •  

Fees

The Fees tab provides a list of all fees assigned to members of the family. 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 and fees that have been paid appear in this list, followed by the ongoing balance for all fees. Fees can be filtered by a specific school year by selecting the School Years dropdown list. By leaving the option on All Years, a historical reference of all fees assigned, paid, voided, etc., can be reviewed and printed, if needed. Fees assigned to specific members of the household can also be reviewed and printed by selecting the All from the Person dropdown list and choosing a household member. When a specific member is selected from this list, only fees assigned to that person display.
