    FOCUS parent portal info- super important!!!

    Parents, you will need a FOCUS parent account in order to see your students' 4th quarter report card. They are not scheduled to be mailed out this year. Please see the notice below from the district for assistance in establishing an account.

    The ECSD Information Technology Department has created a series of instructional videos to assist parents in accessing and learning the new features and settings available in the Focus™ Parent Portal Account program. The videos offered at this link include:

    1.    FOCUS™ for Parents: Why You Need A Parent Account

    2.    FOCUS™ for Parents: How to Create A Parent Online Account

    3.    FOCUS™ for Parents - Version 10 Updates

    There are also written instructions available: Focus™ Parent Portal: Create a New Online Account.  Parents signing up for the first time will want to gather some necessary information (the list is also available on this page). 

    Parents will need to know:

    1.    A valid email address

    2.    Your child’s date of birth

    3.    Your child’s 6-digit ECSD student ID number

    4.    The last four digits of your child’s Social Security Number

    A Parent Portal Account will also allow parents of multiple school-aged children to navigate from one child’s information page to another, without having to log out in-between.

    ECSD Families App

    Once parents have established their Focus™ Parent Portal account and password, they can also access their child’s information by using a mobile device and downloading the ECSD Families App. This free app is available in the Apple App Store, or on the Google Play store for Android phones.  The icon graphic is an apple wearing a graduation cap.
