The Jefferson Parish Public School System is on schedule to debut its new student information system to parents.
Starting September 25, parents of students in grades 1-12 can access their child’s school information through the Student Progress Center. Until this school year, parents accessed a program called Parent Portal to view student info. The Student Progress Center allows parents to monitor attendance, grades, teacher notices, and other school data.
Parents no longer have to go through their child’s school to set up their account. A link to the Student Progress Center will be available on the district website and on all of the district’s school websites. The “Student Progress Center” link will appear at the bottom of JPPSS websites under “Parents.”
The district is mailing a letter home to parents of students in grades 6-12 with instructions on how to create a Student Progress Center account. The letter will also include names of parents/guardians who are authorized to create an account. That letter will be sent home with students in grades 1-5.
Click here to view a generic version of the parent letter. Below are directions for accessing the Student Progress Center.
