Skyward Family Access:

Parent & Student Access to Grades, Attendance and other Records


The Sumter District Schools have embarked on a new student information system called Skyward. With the Family Access web portal, you can review your child's progress with just a "point and click" from your home or office. Parents and guardians now have access to a variety of student information, such as attendance, grades, and other educationally important information. 
Family Access provides you with the tools to be a proactive member of your child's educational team.   Your Family Access username and password will work for all children who are in your household, regardless of grade level or school of attendance. We welcome you to Skyward Family Access, and hope you will find it to be an effective tool in enhancing your communication with your child’s educational team.

Q. Why should I use Family Access?

Family Access is a web based tool available to enhance the family’s role in their child’s education.   Many of you used our previous parent grade book viewer.  Skyward Family Access provides a substantially more informative tool for you to assist your child through their school career.

Q. How do I access the Family Access Portal?

A. Your child's school will be able to provide a user name and password to access your child's records. Once you have your login information, you can reach the Family Access portal by clicking here. In the near future, we will be able to provide setup instructions to use the Skyward App in order to use the features on mobile technologies.

Q. How does my child access his student access?

A.   Students use their district login information, which is the same one they use to log into computers and many educational applications.


Q.  Can other people see my child’s personal information?

A.  Your child’s information is protected through 2048 Bit SSL Encryption and access is password protected. As always, it is always important to use complex passwords and keep them private.
