How to Activate your Parent Portal Account

By launching the Parent Portal, a district takes the crucial step of involving parents in the mission of keeping students safe on school technology, especially after hours and on weekends. 

Below is what your journey will look like after you've received an email invitation from your school to create your Parent Portal account.



  1. If you'd like to enroll in the free Parent Portal, click Confirm My Contact Info in the email you've received:

  2. You will be taken to a page where you enter an email and create a password for your free Parent Portal account. Then, click Confirm My Info.
    NOTE 1: If you're an existing Bark account-holder, your child's student accounts should be automatically added to your account. If your child's student accounts are not added automatically, it likely means you have a different email address for your Bark account than what the school used to invite you to Parent Portal. If that's the case, you can add the student account monitoring to your existing Bark account by logging into your Bark account at and then clicking the link in the email. 
    NOTE 2: If you are a parent with multiple children and receive separate activation emails for each child, you do not need to create separate Parent Portal accounts. Once you've created an account with the first student/child, it should automatically add your other children.

  3. Enter your child's birth month and birth year, and click Save.
