• The Jackson County School District is pleased to announce that the InformationNOW Parent Portal is now open. The Parent Portal will allow parents/guardians to view:

    • Attendance
    • Discipline
    • Full class grades (not just running averages)
    • Progress reports
    • Report Cards (paper report cards will still be issued)

    General Guidelines

    • Access to the InformationNOW Parent Portal is managed on an individual user basis (each parent/guardian has separate access).
    • Parents/Guardians must pick up login information and instructions in person at their child’s school.
    • Parents will be provided a user ID and password by the school and will reset the password the first time they login to the site.
    • Usernames/Passwords can be distributed to the parent/guardian only.

    System recommendations for home computers are as follows:

    1. Internet connection – 56K modem speed or greater.
    2. Browser – Internet Explorer 7.0 (IE 7.0) or higher or Mozilla Firefox 2.0 or higher.
    3. Pop-up blockers and search toolbars (such as Google toolbar) must be turned off.

    Security features of the Parent Portal are as follows:

    1. Three unsuccessful login attempts will disable your account. Parents/Guardians will then have to contact their child’s school to have the account reactivated.
    2. Parents/Guardians will be automatically logged off if you leave the Parent Portal open and inactive for a period of time.
    3. All attempts at logging into the system are recorded and monitored and a full audit trail is tracked on sensitive data
