The parent portal will deployed for parents. The modules open to parents are attendance for the current term, school information, student contacts information, transportation information beginning for 2016-2017 school year, courses scheduled to students, and rising 6th grade electives selection. There will be a letter explaining the opening of the HomeBase/Powerschool parent portal both in English and in Spanish (front/back).
