Parents and students can now log into their Family Access and Student Access accounts. The systems officially opened for the 2016-17 school year on July 29.
The accounts can be used by guardians to access information from multiple teachers and for all siblings. This means all guardians can view the teachers’ gradebooks, report cards, calendar related information, schedules, messages from teachers, conference notifications, academic history and high school transcripts in one place. This information is always changing; the schedule a parent sees today may be different when his or her child reports for school on Friday.
Information on the website is protected and only available to account holders. A parent’s current username and password will remain the same. If you have forgotten your password, click on the Forgot your Login/Password link on the login screen. If you have not yet obtained an account, contact your child’s school.
“We encourage parents to balance the availability of daily information with the overall picture of how their child is learning,” said WCS Instructional Technology Director Belinda Moss. “Experts suggest to try not to check grades daily or on a Friday.”
Finally, one account will provide access to information about all children in your family. Students also have their own accounts so parents do not need to share their username and password. Download the mobile app from your device’s app store and check out the enhanced features added over the summer.
