Parents Can Check Grades

Parent Auditor Account

The Parent Account gives you information about your child’s grades and progress in their course. If your child’s grade drops below a 75, you will receive an automated phone call. If your child’s grade drops below a 70, you will receive a phone call from me.

In order to view your child’s progress, you will need to have a parent account within our Student Information System and your account must be linked to your child’s GAVS account. If you already have a parent account please do NOT create a new one. If you have never created a parent account or you have not linked to your student’s account, follow the steps listed below.

Parent Account Information

Parent helpdesk articles

Parents should read the knowledgebase articles in the order listed below. The steps must be completed in this order.

During the parent account creation process, you will be required to visit to begin the account creation process.


1. Parent account creation

2. Link child to parent account (Student's GTID is needed during this step.)

3. Using my parent auditor account

Upcoming Important Dates
