Parents must create a single log-in account for Parent Portal. If you have more than one child you can create one account for all children. If a parent had a child/children in DeSoto County Schools last school year, that parent will need to use their original log-in information (log-in name and password from last year) to create this SINGLE log-in account.
If students are new to DeSoto County Schools, parents will need to go to their child’s school and pick up the generated log-in name and password to create the single log-in account. Secondary users can create their own account, as long as they have the original log-in information.
To create the single log-in, go to the Parent Portal website above. At the sign in page, click on Create an account. Enter the "Create Parent Account" information at the top. Then enter the "Link Students to Account" information at the bottom. Enter the Student's name, Access ID, Access Password, and relationship for each student you wish to add to your Parent Account. The password provided is case sensitive. Click Enter. This will generate your new, single Log-in Account information. If you are experiencing problems creating your account, please contact your child's school.
The ParentPortal allows parents to monitor their child's progress in school by providing Internet access to grades, attendance, discipline, academic history, graduation verification, and standardized test results in a secure password-protected environment.
Parent Portal is a means to further promote educational excellence by enhancing our program of communication between parents, students and teachers.
