Parent Portal Agreement

You must agree to the following terms and conditions before proceeding:

EduSyms is excited to be utilizing one of the features available through our integrated instance management information system. The portal provides parents with the privilege of accessing the student information records of their children through a secure Internet connection. Access to your child’s grades and attendance through SiMS is being provided to you as another form of communication with teachers and administrators with the goal of supporting your child’s education. Please read these guidelines carefully.

Participating parents/guardians will be expected to act in a responsible, ethical, and legal manner, as well as to abide by and support the following guidelines:

  1. Keep your Username and Password confidential. Best practice is not to share your log-in information with your child as there is parent-specific information that should not be available to students. However, please share the grades and attendance data with your child to start a conversation about study habits and learning.
  2. It is your responsibility to determine which parents or guardians are able to access records. By logging into the Parent Portal, you acknowledge that you are duly authorized to view the site. Users will not attempt to gain unauthorized access to the district system or go beyond their authorized access. This includes attempting to log in through another person’s account or access another person’s files. Inappropriate use will result in cancellation of a user’s privilege.
  3. Parents who identify a security problem with the Parent Portal must notify their instance office immediately.
  4. Parents and/or their computers (viruses, malware, etc.) who are identified as a security risk to the Parent Portal or any other SiMS computers/networks will be denied access to the Portal.
  5. Parents will not attempt to harm or destroy data of another user, instance or district network, or the Internet. Anyone found to be violating Data Privacy laws will be subject to legal prosecution.
  6. Grade concerns should first be addressed in a conversation with your child. A discussion can then be directed to the student’s teacher by phone or email.
  7. The way the due date of an assignment is displayed and the frequency of posted grades may vary from teacher to teacher. It could mean the date the assignment was recorded in the grade book or the date the assignment is due. If the information is not available in the Class Description in the Parent Portal, contact your child’s teacher.
  8. SiMS reserves the right to monitor, inspect, copy, review and store at any time, and without prior notice, any and all usage of the system and any and all information transmitted or received in connection with such usage. All such information files shall be and remain the property of the instance district. No user shall have any expectation of privacy regarding such materials.
  9. I release SiMS from any and all liability for damages arising out of the unauthorized access to this account.
