Important Message:

Polk County Public Schools has transitioned to a new student information system, FOCUS. As part of this transition, Parent Portal and Student Portal will have limited functionality for the first few weeks of school. When parents and students log in, they will see their contact information, as well as information pertaining to school nutrition, transportation and media services. However, grades and student schedules will not be immediately available. We expect grades and student schedules will be available in the portals within the first several weeks of the school year. Until the portals are fully functional, please contact your child’s teachers or administrators by phone or email with any concerns or questions. Thank you for your patience as we give our employees time to adjust to this new system. If you need help signing up for your Parent Portal account, see the information below.

The Parent Portal is a service offered to parents and guardians for accessing certain student records. The service allows parents and guardians to access information about ALL of their students through one convenient website. This eliminates the need to visit several different websites, make telephone calls or visit the school to access records and information.

Important:  On August 9, 2018, Polk County Public Schools upgraded its Parent Portal system. If you missed the opportunity to migrate your existing parent portal account prior to July 27, please refer to the “How do I create my Parent Portal account and attach my students?” section below.
