Parental involvement is vital to student academic success and for this reason, the  Parent Portal has been implemented at all United I.S.D. campuses.  The Parent Portal is a useful tool for parents and guardians to stay informed and engaged in their child’s education.  This breakthrough technology is designed to provide parents with the most current information about their child’s activities at school, which in turn, helps them direct their children in areas that require improvement.

The Parent Portal gives access to:

• View grades and transcript

• See class schedule

• Monitor attendance

• Communicate with teachers

• View current homework assignments, projects, and deadlines

We encourage all parents to register in the program by completing a Parent Portal Online Registration form which is available at your child’s campus.  Once the registration process has been completed, a password will be sent to the email address indicated on the registration form. Parents can then visit, click the Tyler Parent Portal icon, and log on by entering their email address and password.
