  • Parent Portal

    Introducing... The Updated GCPS Parent Portal!

    We heard you and we’ve updated the look, feel, and function of the school district’s Parent Portal, with easy access and one go-to location for need-to-know information about your student’s education—from records to resources.  The Parent Portal is a website that will allow you to log in and see your child's information, such as attendance, grades, standardized test scores, etc.

    Families that don’t have an account yet can register online at: https://go2.gwinnett.k12.ga.us/parents/PPS/register or print and complete the Parent Portal registration form and return it to the main office M-F 8AM-2PM.  Along with the completed form, you are required to show a photo I.D. for verification.  Learn more about the registration process in this flyer for families.

    Don't have time to get on the computer and look up your student's information?  GCPS now offers a mobile phone app for your ParentVUE/Parent Portal.  Click here to view the flyer for mobile ParentVUE app.

     You do not need to register for a new parent portal account every school year.
