What is the Parent Portal?
Gwinnett County Public Schools' Parent Portal offers parents and guardians online, timely, and secure access to their child's grades and attendance. It also includes details on your child's discipline record and test history. In a nutshell, the Parent Portal is an easy-to-use communication tool that will allow you to take an even more active role in your child's education.
How do I sign up?
Complete the registration form (form in other languages) available at your child’s school. You must return this form in person to allow the school to verify your identity.
Your email address will serve as your user ID. A few days after returning the form, you will receive an email with the URL for the Parent Portal and directions for activating your account. You will create a password during the online registration and will have the option to access your new account.
What information and tools can I access through the Parent Portal?
- Find grades for projects, tests, homework, and quizzes for current courses, including missing work.
- Access an overview of your student’s grades, attendance, discipline record, and program information.
- See your student’s course history.
- Review your student’s results on standardized tests, with links to more information about the tests.
- See summary information about your student’s library materials and textbooks (and any related fines or refunds).
- Find your student’s bus route information.
- Check the current balance in your student’s MyPaymentsPlus account.
- Email your child’s teacher directly from the portal.
- Parents and guardians now can update some of their child’s information on the portal.
Are grades posted for all grade levels and for all classes?
Current grades for students in grades K–12 will be posted daily as they are updated by your child’s teacher(s). Historical course history is available for all grade levels.
Can I email my child's teacher through the portal?
Yes. You can email your child’s teacher through the portal. Emails from parents to teachers via the portal are limited to 500 characters. This function does not support graphics or attachments. Teacher replies are sent to the email address designated as your portal account user ID.
What should I do if I forget my user ID or password?
On the log-in page, click on the link labeled “Forgot username/password?”
Another page will display. Enter your email address. If the email address is on file for the student number, your account information will be emailed to you. If you are unable to reset your password after completing these steps, contact the Head Elementary Front Office.
How do I add my child's "preferred name"?
Families of students who wish for their child to be called by a “Preferred Name” other than their legal name will need to go into ParentVUE (in the GCPS Parent Portal) to provide that information. (Please note that if you had provided a Nickname previously, you still will need to enter that name as your child’s Preferred Name.)
GCPS reserves the right to remove a “Preferred Name” if it is deemed inappropriate. Once the Preferred Name has been provided, your local school will verify the name and make the change in the system.
