As each school or district has its own specific goals and challenges, we provide several options for implementing the Parent Portal. We encourage schools and districts to choose the one that works best for them. 

As always, we are here to help along the way. Should you need additional assistance please don't hesitate to reach out at

Before you start, please also check out our Parent Portal FAQ:

Parent Portal Implementation Strategies

1. All Students

When to use: Your school/district is ready to invite all parents to partner with them in online student safety.

Choose one of the following and submit the info from your dashboard here.

  • Connect your school to Clever
  • Connect your school to Powerschool
  • Submit their emails in .csv format

2. Vulnerable and High-Risk Students

When to use: Your school/district recognizes the value in a home-school monitoring partnership, but only wants to offer it to specific students at this time.

Select a group of students most in need of additional oversight.

Submit their emails in .csv format from your dashboard here.
