Parent and Family Portal

Knowledge is Power

The School District of Philadelphia is proud to offer a tool that parents and family members may use to stay connected to their child and their school. The School District of Philadelphia’s Parent & Family Portal gives you access to valuable information about your child’s education and school. You will be able to view your child’s academic history, test results, attendance, and more. You can also request to receive text messages, emails and/or phone calls about important issues that might impact your child, (i.e. weather-related school closures and delays, attendance alerts and upcoming events of interest to families).

In order to complete your registration for the Parent & Family Portal you will need:

  • Your student’s ID number (can be obtained from your child’s report card or teacher)
  • A personal email address.
    You can register for a free email account using Gmail, Outlook, or a similar service.
  • Access to the telephone number on file at your student’s school.

Click here to Register for Parent Portal.  For more information, visit the School District of Philadelphia’s Family and Community Engagement website.
