Northwestern Schools invites all parents and guardians who want to be more involved with their child's education to become a Family Access Member. With the Family Access web portal, you can review your child's progress with the ease of a few mouse clicks. Parents and guardians now have access to a plethora of student information, such as attendance, grades, discipline, , food service balance and history, vaccinations, and student and family information. You may also submit your child's absence notifications via the web and review your log-on history. Because schools differ, just like children, not all Family Access features will be available at all schools. There is no need to wait until parent-teacher conferences; with this up-to-the-minute information you can take a more proactive approach to your child's education. Staff email addresses are provided through Family Access for your convenience if you have a question or need an answer prior to parent-teacher conferences. Your Family Access password and user name will work for all children who live in your household, regardless of grade level or school, and you need to apply only at the school where you will pick up your password and user name. We welcome you to Family Access, and hope you will find this application an important part of your ongoing relationship with Northwestern Schools.
