The Parent Portal provides a way for parents to observe their children's attendance, assignments and grades, as well as easily email teachers. This access allows parents to keep more informed about what is happening with their children in school. The Parent Portal is part of our Student Information System (SIS).
This year, Hamden is changing our SIS from Tyler (TEMS) to PowerSchool. PowerSchool is used by over 80% or schools in Connecticut. As we transition to PowerSchool, we will be phasing in the use of the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Access will first be provided to parents of our middle and high school students. Although not all of the Parent Portal features will be available immediately, more and more will be phased in as we proceed with our PowerSchool implementation.
Due to the change in progress reporting at the elementary level (from subject grading to standards-based), Parent Portal access for K-6 students will begin only as a pilot, in a small number of elementary school classrooms. (Parents involved in the pilot will be notified individually.)
Hamden Public Schools is excited that we can offer our families a greater connection to their children's education through the Parent Portal.
