Quick FAQ

I have more than one student in the district, will I need multiple passwords?

No. Via one password you can access records for all of your students, even if they are attending different schools within the district.


With all the talk about Internet safety and security, how do I know Family Access/Skyward is safe?

Family Access/Skyward uses Secured Socket Layer (SSL) encryption as the security layer for data presented on the Web. This is the same encryption system used by sites that accept credit card numbers and other personal data that must be secure. The district's Family Access/Skyward administrator is responsible for setting security and access to student records, as determined by district procedure.  Each individual, whether student, parent, or staff member, must be given a username and password and be designated as a member of a household linked to a student in order to view Family Access/Skyward information.
