It is known that parent involvement in their children’s education leads to student success. Active, engaged parents translate to active, engaged students who complete their schoolwork, go to class, and gain a better education.
Parents will have a significant impact on their child’s learning and educational experience when they take an active role in monitoring the student’s progress, assignments, attendance, activities, and events. Parent involvement helps keep students on track – from better attendance and fewer missed assignments to improved test scores and increased grade point averages.
When parents are involved, students take more responsibility for their learning and accountability is heightened. Communication improves within the family when children reach out for help. Engagement can strengthen the parent-student relationship: knowing your student’s grades and assignments is an easy starting point to open dialogue for discussing progress, offering advice, working on projects together, or, hopefully, giving congratulations
We invite parents to utilize the following instructions to access your student’s grades, attendance, assignments, etc.
To create your Parent Portal FOCUS account: There is a two-step process to gain access to your student’s information. The instructions and needed Parent Portal Access Authorization Form are HERE.
Step one – Create an online account using your student’s date of birth and ten digit Student ID number which you can get from the front office of the school. Visit the district website for access and information. https://www.manateeschools.net/Page/5994
Step Two – After creating your account you must download and print the Parent Portal Access Authorization Form and turn it into the front office of the school. The front office has additional copies if you are unable to print one. The school will then activate your account. The school will not be able to activate your access UNTIL you have created your online account and turned in the form. You will not see any data until you complete and turn in the Parent Portal Access Authorization Form to the school. Once you have completed that step, the school will activate your account and notify you at the email provided that it has been activated. Please print legibly so we will have the correct email address. This should be the same email address you used when registering for your FOCUS Parent Portal account.
