Synergy ParentVUE & StudentVUE information for students and families
Synergy ParentVUE is a tool to help families stay informed about their student’s progress. This tool can be used to access your student’s grades, attendance information, and also to communicate with teachers. Students will have access to the same information using Synergy StudentVUE.
How do I get my ParentVUE login information?
If you do not have your login information or your activation key, please contact your student's school.I am a student. How do I login to StudentVUE?
StudentVUE is available to students in Grades 6 and above. Students can login to StudentVUE using their regular PPS username and password. If you do not know your PPS username and password, please contact your school office.
How do I login to the ParentVUE/StudentVUE mobile app?
To login to the free ParentVUE/StudentVUE mobile app, download the ParentVUE application if you a parent or the StudentVUE application if you are a student. When prompted to enter the district URL, enter https://parent.cascadetech.org/pps1j/. Then login with your username and password.
Can I use the same login for all my kids at Portland Public Schools?
Yes. Your ParentVUE login gives you access to information on all your kids enrolled at Portland Public Schools. If you are not seeing one or more kid with your login, it can be an indication of a duplicate record for you in the system. Please contact your student's school (the student you are unable to see in ParentVUE) to fix this issue.
What does the Report Card module show?
The report card module shows a student's final grade. This is not a replacement for mailed-home report cards.
*Please note that the report card module is currently available only for Middle School and High School students and is not available to Elementary of K-8 students. Example: If a parent has students attending all grade levels (an elementary, K-8, middle, and high school), the report card module will only be visible for the middle and high school students.
I forgot my password. How do I reset my password?
Parents have the ability to reset their own passwords. If you have forgotten your password, follow the below steps:
- Click on the Login to ParentVUE/StudentVUE link on the top of this page
- Click I am a parent >>
- Under the username and password field, click on Forget your password? Click here.
- Enter the email address you used to activate your account and click Send Email to be emailed your login information.
Students can manage their own password by going to http://password.pps.net.
My account has been disabled. How do I re-enable my account?
For security reasons, ParentVUE accounts are disabled if a password is entered incorrectly more than three times. To re-enable your account, please contact your student's school.
Why did PPS replace the EdBox Viewer?
In August 2013, PPS implemented a new system called Synergy to manage student data. As a result, grading and attendance information entered by teachers will now be available to our families through Synergy ParentVUE.
What are some other Synergy ParentVUE benefits?
- Families can access all of their students' information from one login
- ParentVUE is available in multiple languages
- ParentVUE is available as a free mobile app for iOS and Android devices
Families should also keep in mind that the amount of information and frequency of updates will vary from teacher to teacher and course to course. Please consult with your student's teachers if you have questions.
