Infinite Campus Help
One of the important features of Infinite Campus is the Campus Parent Portal. The Portal is available to every parent/guardian of a student enrolled within the South-Western City School District. Through the Portal, parents are able to access their students' information, such as class schedules, coursework, attendance and academic reports via the Internet. Parents will also be able to submit updates to emergency and family contact information via the Portal.
Parents can also determine how and where they wish to receive emergency communications, attendance calls, general announcement messages, and e-mail messages from teachers, school and the district, as well as update emergency contact information.
Parents receive their Campus Portal Activation Key in the Back to School Letter mailed home in mid-August, prior to the start of school. Please keep this letter in a safe location and do not share your Activation Key with anyone - even your children.
To initially set up your child and/or parent account(s), please use the step-by-step guide below.
If you set-up your child and/or parent accounts during a previous school year, you will not need to change any of the information this school year to access your child's information. However, you will need to complete the Annual Information Update every year to review the "Contact Preferences" area of your account to specify how and where you wish to receive home-school communications (including school closing notices) and update the emergency contact information.
If you no longer have your Activation Key, please contact your child's school for parent and/or student Activation Key information. You will need to provide the appropriate identification before the school will release this confidential information to you. Again, please keep this information in a safe place and do not share it with anyone else.
