  8. If your student attends a charter school, please contact your student's school directly for information specific to their processes.

**Student passwords have not been reset yet. You can still login with the same username (student #) and password that you used last year/over the summer. If your student does not know his/her username and password to login to the OneClay Portal, please contact your child's homeroom/first period teacher. Student schedules and teacher names can be found in the Focus Parent Portal.

We know this is a new experience for everyone. We are all in this together! We are #OneClay!!
