ActiveParent

ActiveParent is a web-based application parents can use to keep track of students’ records. JPS parents with more than one student can access records for all of them with one account.

The goal of ActiveParent is to provide parents and guardians the ability to say their ABCs—check students’ Attendance, Behavior and Course Performance. ActiveParent provides student information as soon as it is entered into SAM (Student Administration Manager).

Overview of the ActiveParent Screen

Student information is organized by the following tabs in ActiveParent:

  • News – News from the district and/or the student's school
  • Schedule – Student's current class schedule
  • Attendance – Student's attendance report
  • Gradebook – Student's term grades, daily grades, and homework assignments
  • Discipline – Student's discipline reports
