How to Access FACTS Family Portal
FACTS School Management Software gives you, the busy parent, an opportunity to get more involved in your child’s academic progress and future success – all via the Internet!
FACTS Family Portal is a private and secure parents’ portal that will allow parents to view academic information specific to their children, while protecting their children’s information from others. You may view your child’s grades, attendance, assignments and conduct, as well as other useful school information and announcements. You can also communicate with teachers and other school staff online whenever necessary. All you need is an Internet-capable computer.
