Users can also choose to have an e-mail or text message sent if a child's grades drop below a selected average or is absent or tardy to class.Information that PSC provides access to includes:
  • Period and Daily Attendance
  • Class Schedules and Assignments
  • Progress Reports
  • Report Cards*
  • Standardized Test Results (TAKS by subject area)
  • Curriculum Resources
  • Parent and Student Resources

  • * Printed report cards will still be mailed to students' homes.

To get started, log in or register at Parents will need the following information to complete registration:

  • Student ID number (HISD)
  • Student date of birth
