Parent Portal for Student Grades 

Parents can monitor the grades, attendance, and discipline referrals of their children by obtaining a username and password to the Parent Portal of InformationNow. You should be able to see all of your children enrolled in a Dallas County school under one login. Custodial parents/guardians may obtain this by gong to the school and seeing the Data Manager or Principal. Title I Parental Involvement meetings and Open House are excellent opportunities to get these passwords and usernames. If there are issues with the Parent Portal, please call the school. Please note that problems with Internet service or the computer are the responsibility of the parent/guardian.


Dallas County School System is offering free introductory computer classes to all parents and guardians.
