Skyward Family Access

Skyward Family Access Goes Live!


Skyward Family Access (similar to Parent Portal on Infinite Campus) is now available to parents with students in the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District. It enables you to make payments, update telephone numbers and email addresses, view student schedules and attendance, and check on student grades using any personal device! This important tool will help you monitor your child's progress in school and allow for increased communication with teachers.

While most records for Skyward Family Access are maintained by the District office (e.g., address changes can only be made at the WAWM Enrollment Center) there are some records that parents can maintain to ensure accuracy. We are asking parents to review and/or revise their home, cell, and work telephone numbers and email addresses. In addition, parents will be able to make food service and fee payments online.


Each parent/guardian active in Skyward has been sent a letter with personalized login and password information.
