Skyward Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get a parent/guardian account?

Once you have provided an email account to the campus, your login information will sent to the email address on record in Skyward.

Accessing your account the first time involves several steps. See the documents below for detailed information about the process.

I provided an email address but haven't received my parent account information yet. What should I do?

Please contact the campus for further assistance.

At the beginning of the school year, the data entry process may take longer than expected. We appreciate your patience.

What if I don't have an email address?

Every parent/guardian is assigned an account username and password when a student is enrolled. A parent/guardian can request this account information in person at the campus.

Having an email address does allow a parent/guardian to take advantage of several Family Access features. It's free and easy to get an email account with web services such as Google and Yahoo.

Can students use family access?

Yes. Students use their sID for the username and their NPIN as password.

Keep in mind that students may not have access to all of the same information as parents.

Why can't I change settings in my family account?

Only those designated as the primary guardian in Skyward for each family may change certain settings.

Guardian status is defined at the point of enrollment but can be changed. Contact your campus to find out about changing your status from Guardian 2 to Guardian 1.
