HISD launches new student information system, parent portal

The Houston Independent School District has moved to a new Student Information System (SIS) for the 2020-2021 school year. The new system includes a parent portal that will launch on Aug. 31.

Parents will be able to use the HISD Connect Parent Portal as a tool to track information related to their student’s schedule, grades, attendance, academic history, and more.

“Collaboration between educators and parents is more important than ever, as we prepare to reconnect safely and return strong,” HISD Interim Superintendent Grenita Lathan said. “HISD Connect will integrate seamlessly with online learning.”

Parents will receive a unique code, or access ID, for each of their students and will be able to use that code to set up an account to access their student’s profile through the HISD Connect Parent Portal. Parents who have not received an access ID by Sept. 14, should contact their student’s school.

After using the access ID to set up an account on a web browser, parents will be able to use the login credentials they created to access their student’s profile on the PowerSchool Mobile app, which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
