txConnect Allows Parents Access to Student Information
For those unfamiliar with txConnect, this web site is a portal that allows parents the opportunity to view student grades and attendance via the Internet. Parents who have already setup a txConnect account in previous years should not have to do anything unless they choose to modify their alert preferences. Parents who do not already have an account or who need to add children to their existing account must obtain a parent portal letter from their child's school with the student's parent portal ID number. This is an alpha-numeric code specific to txConnect and is not the child's student ID number. Click here to access txConnect or for additional information.
Once again this school year parents can view purchase and credit details online for their child's cafeteria transactions via a service known as EZSchoolPay. Through this portal, parents can see the quantity and types of items students are purchasing both at breakfast and lunch as well as view their child's account balance. Additionally, parents can also choose to have a notification email sent whenever their child's account balance drops below an amount specified by the parent. Both of these services are free. As always, if a parent chooses to make deposits online, a service charge fee is incurred. For more details, view the EZSchoolPay information page.
