Students & Families

We care about bringing students and families closer together! Sycamore’s online School Management System gives students and families access to grades, report cards, admissions, school documents, and more! Sycamore has the resources and communication tools to ensure each student and his/her family is involved in the academic process.

 


Parent Portal

  • Stay informed and connected through school news, schedules, calendars, lunch menus, newsletters, etc
  • Check account balances and securely make payments online
  • Easily monitor grades, missed assignments, attendance, and more
  • Log into the mobile app to monitor your student’s progress on-the-go
  • Sign up for parent-teacher conferences for each of your students

Parents can securely login to the system, and easily access a wide variety of information including: grades, schedules, assignments, attendance, school directories, and more. Further, they can even use Sycamore Education to make online payments.

In addition, parents can enter classrooms to view any calendar events, news articles, documents, and other noteworthy information accessible to parents inside the classroom. Sycamore’s main objective with the parent portal is to provide parents with a platform that establishes and continues an invested interest in their students’ academic careers.

School Documents/Calendars

  • Families can find important documents such as: newsletters, school supply lists, fundraising information, etc.
  • Families can also access documents pertaining to their student’s classes.
  • Students are able to access and download tests, assignments, and homework.
  • Students can see when assignments, tests, and projects are due on the calendar.
  • Families will see school events, closings, holidays, etc.
  • Can be viewed by month, week, or day.

When students and families access Sycamore, they have the opportunity to stay up-to-date with documents found on both the school homepage and the homepage of individual classrooms. By accessing these documents, families stay engaged with what’s happening at school, and it also allows students to continue their responsibility of taking charge in their own education.

Similarly, the school and classroom calendars can also be utilized to keep students/families in the know. When students/families log in and access the school calendar, they will see school-wide events that consist of school closings, holidays, assemblies, fundraisers, etc. Each classroom calendar will also have events listed that pertain to that specific class. This can include: field trips, parties, in-class activities, as well as assignments, tests, and projects that are due.

Student/Family Information

With paper-documented storage and filing cabinets quickly becoming obsolete, it’s never been more vital for data to be safely secured online. In Sycamore, family and student data is safely protected for this essential data to be managed, stored, and located in a central location in the family and student profiles.

A variety of information can be included on family and student profiles that far exceeds the basic information of name, address, phone numbers, etc. Additional information that can be featured on student/family profiles include: medical, lunch plans, attendance data, emergency contacts, authorized pickups, etc.
