How current is the information on ParentCONNECTxp?
The PCXP updates attendance, assignments, and student information once per day. Teachers are required to update their gradebook assignments every two weeks. However, some teachers will update daily.
What do I do if I am “locked” out of my ParentCONNECTxp account?
As a security measure, if you have 3 failed attempts at inputting your username and/or password the system will lock you out. This protects you from having someone sit down and continually try to guess your password. The system will automatically reset itself within 1 hour. There is NO need to contact anyone about the problem.
Why do I receive the message “None of the users’ students could be loaded”?
This message displays because the process to populate the information into PCXP to allow you to see your child’s information has not been refreshed. The process may take 24-36 hours.
How do I sign up?
The district created accounts for every custodial parent. The log in information was distributed during a planned parent night where Parents were introduced to the district’s parent portals. This session explained the two online tools SchoolNet ParentPortal and ParentConnectxp. You will be required to appear at that school to verify your identity and receive the log in information.
What if I missed the Parent Session and want to access my child’s information?
You will need to visit the school and request the login information. Again, you will need to verify your identity to receive the log in information
How long will it take to activate my ParentCONNECTxp account?
Your account will be active 24 to 36 hours after you request the log in information from the school. This process includes appearing in person to verify your identity and your relationship to the student. You will get your user ID and password at that time.
