Student Schedules Available Next Week Through Parent Portal
(ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Virginia) - High school and middle school students in Albemarle County Public Schools will be able to obtain their class schedules online beginning next Friday, August 10. The schedules will be posted after 4:30 that afternoon on the parent portal for each individual school.
Not yet included in the portal program are Murray High School and the Community Charter Public School, both of which will be operational later in the new school year.
Parents and guardians who created an account this past school year are able to immediately log in to the portal. Those parents and guardians who need to set up accounts can visit the school that their son or daughter attends where they will be given the access information and code to set up the account. They need not wait until August 10 to set up their accounts. The school division requires parents or guardians to appear in person at the school their child attends in order to ensure appropriate security for the account.
Middle school parents also may receive a paper copy of their child's schedule by contacting their child's school. High schools will mail paper copies of the schedule and other information for the new school year to all parents and guardians on August 10.
The parent portal was established earlier this calendar year at all high schools and middle schools in the division to improve parent and guardian access to information about their child's attendance, schedule and grades, and to increase opportunities to communicate with teachers. "It is a powerful way to connect parents, guardians, students and teachers to a two-way communication system that provides up-to-the-minute information on the needs and progress of students," said Dr. Billy Haun, the division's Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning. "Parent portals will work to ensure higher quality educational achievement," Dr. Haun added.
Also, sometime after the new school year begins, parents and guardians of elementary school students will be able to access a pilot program for a parent portal that will provide information to parents and guardians on attendance records for their child.
