MNPS launches parent portal

The MNPS Family Portal is now live, giving families access to the classroom at their fingertips. Connected directly to the district’s student management system, Infinite Campus, the Family Portal provides real-time information about grades, assignments, attendance, discipline and much more.

The Family Portal allows for better communication between teachers and families through emails and mobile alerts. Teachers will be able to send messages to individual parents or groups of parents. Schools will be able to post important news and announcements for all of their families to see.

“We know that when families are engaged in learning, children are more engaged in and perform better in school,” said Dr. Shawn Joseph, Director of Schools. “The Family Portal gives parents an easy way to stay informed about what’s happening in the classroom and monitor their children’s progress. I hope every family will take advantage of this great tool.”

The district began mailing letters in early January to more than 85,000 parents and legal guardians with personalized activation codes. Providing a personalized activation code for each legal guardian ensures secure access to student information. Once a parent has created a username and password, they will be able to login under a single account and see information for each child they have enrolled in Metro Schools.
