Parent Portal
Last year I was able to go online and see my child's assignments and grades. Can I do that this year?

RE:Parent Portal
This year HCPS moved to PowerSchool, a new student information system which includes the online teacher gradebook. Parent Portal,which allows parents to view individual assignments and grades, will be available beginning in early October 2012 (middle and high school) and later in the month for elementary school. Letters will be mailed out with your login information. In the meantime, you can always contact your child's teacher for information on their progress.

RE:Parent Portal
Update: Letters with login information have been mailed to parents of middle and high school students. If you would like hands-on help getting this set up, stop by the Central Office on Thursday, Oct 11 between 11am and 7pm. Access to grades for 3rd and 4th grade students will begin 2nd semester.
