Parent Portal Also known as: The next best thing to being at school with your student!
What’s Parent Portal? Allows parents to view their students information from home. grades behavior homework lunch accounts test results and more
I use my student’s account. Why do I need my own? Only allows you to see that particular student. Your own account, will have access to all of your students in ONE logon. Also, you don’t have to worry about your student changing their password and not telling you the new one……
How do I create my account? By filling out a simple form, you can request an activation key. Forms can be found at the school your student attends. Or, you can visit TurnerUSD202.org, click on Community then visit the Parent Resources section and download the Parent Portal Request Form. Fill it out and send with student to school. Once processed you will be emailed an activation key. If you do not have email, you will receive a call informing you that your activation key is ready for pick up.
I have my activation key. Now what? After receiving your key, go to the web site given to you with your activation key. You will see the box to the right. Click on the top click here for people with activation keys. Enter your activation key. You can enter your key by hand or copy and paste from the email your received. Then click submit.
Almost done! Select your username and password. Now you get to select your own username and password. Passwords in Campus must be at least 8 characters and include one capital letter and one number, e.g. Turner11. (Don’t use that one because now everyone knows it!) Make your password something you will remember.
