There is a more recent post on this topic: Stay Connected with the School District of Philadelphia Parent and Family Portal - February 2021
The School District of Philadelphia is proud to present a new tool that parents and family members will be able to use to stay connected to their child and their school. The School District of Philadelphia Parent & Family Portal gives parents access to valuable information about their child's education and school. Parents will be able to view their child's academic history, test results, attendance, and more. Parents can also request to receive text messages, emails and/or phone calls about important issues that might impact their child, i.e. weather-related school closures and delays, attendance alerts, and upcoming events of interest to families.
Any parent or guardian of one or more students actively enrolled in a K-12 school managed directly by the School District of Philadelphia can sign up for an account. Parents or guardians of a student enrolled in a Philadelphia charter, archdiocesan or private school are not eligible.
Many families will also have to use the portal for the middle and high school application process opening on October 17 for the 2015-2016 school year. Students and families who wish to attend a school that is not their neighborhood middle or high school in September 2015, in grades K-12, should participate in the School Selection process.
In order to complete your registration for the Parent & Family Portal you will need:
- Your student's ID number
- A personal email address. You can register for a free email account using Gmail, Yahoo, or a similar service.
- Access to the telephone number on file at your student's school.
Remember, you can visit your neighborhood library for free computer access! If you need help or would like more information about the NEW Parent & Family Portal, visit http://philasd.org/face/stayconnected, send an email to email@example.com or contact:
