Parent Portal?

The Parent Portal is a tool that all parents should have access to. The Parent Portal will allow you to view your student(s) class schedule, grades, add money to their lunch account, and pay fees/fines. It will also allow you to make changes to your phone numbers, address, email address and emergency contacts.

Each summer (around June 15th) all families with enrolled student(s) returning in August must login to their Parent Portal to complete necessary Parent Portal updates and submit them by August 1st. This is a vital part of getting your student enrolled and ready for the next school year. Updating the Parent Portal over the summer is about a 10-15 minutes process, you must save and checkmark each page before going on to next page. Be sure to submit when you believe you've complete everything.

If you forgot your Parent Portal password contact the main office and we can send you an email that allows you to login and change your password.

Homework Academy

The MAC Scholars Academy will faciliate homework sessions for all students on Tuesday and Thursdays. Teacher and peer turors will be available to assist students during this time. Students should fill out the google form with their name, grade and the subject with which they would like help. The link to sign up is and will continue to be posted in the Daily Announcements (emailed to students daily) throughout the semester. Homework sessions run from 2:30pm-4:00pm. Questions can be directed to Mrs. Curry at ycurry@stcharlessd.org

Google Classroom

Don't forget that students can access the SCW Library Google Classroom for information like research tips and database home access passwords.
