The SD42 Parent Portal allows parents/guardians to register their child for kindergarten, fill in school forms, sign off on field trips, receive timely school and school district communications, make secure payments online, and much more.
The portal was developed in response to the need for a more streamlined, paperless approach to communications between parents/guardians and their child’s school. While the Parent Portal is not intended to replace face-to-face communications, it does offer an alternative to paper forms, long registration line-ups and in-person cash payments.
In its current stage of development, the SD42 Parent Portal has the following capabilities:
- Timely communication of district and school announcements
- Consent and policy acceptance forms
- Field trip forms
- Athletic and school fees
- Online reporting
- Student literacy and numeracy dashboard
- Kindergarten registration
- Transportation registration and payments
- Grade 8 registration
In the future, the Parent Portal will be expanded to include a “feedback module” through which parents/guardians, schools, students and staff can suggest improvements.
