Student Information System
The Student Information System has been designed to allow parents of students under the age of 18, the opportunity to access daily attendance data and credit accumulation information for their student without first having to contact their high school. Data for students who are 18 years or older is not available through this website because of legal restrictions. To discuss the information presented here, or if you believe there is an error in this data, please call your student's school. Your student's OEN (the nine digit number printed on your student's report card) and date of birth are required to access this information.
