Newton Public Schools is pleased to announce the implementation of Family/Student Access for our high schools commencing tomorrow, February 23. As part of our launch of our new student information management system, Skyward, Family Access will replace our former portal, ParentConnect.
Family/Student Access is a secure Internet-based website that will allow you to easily keep track of your student’s experience at school. Among many things, it will allow you to view your student’s attendance, mid-term progress reports, term grades, and transcripts. Family Access will also allow you to view and update family and emergency contact information.
When the registration process for next year begins in the near future, Family/Student Access will be integral in viewing recommended courses and selecting elective courses for our high school students. Stay tuned for further information on the registration process, timeline and instructions.
In order for you to begin using Family/Student Access, you will need a login and password. These will be generated and emailed to you tomorrow. If you do not receive the email on Tuesday, February 23, please contact your student’s house office some time between Wednesday through Friday, February 24-26. A video with navigation instructions can be found here: www.newton.k12.ma.us/Page/2669
We are very excited about how Family/Student Access will help you stay informed about your student’s progress. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your house secretary.
