CPS Parent Portal

The Parent Portal is a unique web-based tool that allows you to securely view your child’s grades and attendance online. You can register to receive e-mail or text notifications when your child is absent or when his or her grades drop below a point you identify. Additionally, you will be able to communicate directly with your child’s teachers, enhancing the opportunity for parent-teacher interaction.

Check your child’s grades and attendance online by logging on to our Parent Portal.

How do I check my child’s grades and attendance?

You will need your child’s CPS ID number as well as your unique school-issued personal identification number (PIN) prior to creating an account. Please contact the front office to learn how to obtain your PIN. To ensure the security of your child’s records, PINs will not be issued over the phone under any circumstance.

Create an account

Once you have a received your PIN from your child’s school, you can create your Parent Portal account. Here’s how it works:

  1. Fill out the Parent Account Signup page and agree to the terms of usage.
  2. Link to your child’s school record using your school-issued PIN; and
  3. View your child’s grades and attendance.
