Did you know that there is a parent version of LaunchPad too?! We call it the OCPS Parent Portal. But instead of access to textbooks, it gives parents access to important platforms like Canvas, Skyward and more with just one password. Register today to see what your child is working on!

Giving your child kudos and helpful tips when they are learning from a distance helps them see the value in what they are doing. If your child's teacher is using Canvas to post assignments, you can monitor your child's progress using your Canvas Parent Account from any device. Remember your OCPS Parent Portal account gets you access to Canvas Parent and much more. Haven't registered for an OCPS Parent Portal Account yet? Do it today and access Canvas Parent tomorrow!

Your child may be submitting distance learning assignments in multiple places. However, we want you to know that teachers will post all assignments that contribute to your child’s grade to Skyward, the official gradebook for OCPS. A suggestion would be to set a reminder to log in to the OCPS Parent Portal weekly to check the Skyward gradebooks for information on missing work, assignment grades, and overall class averages.

Students who need to complete credit recovery may continue using Edgenuity remotely via Launchpad by clicking on the Edgenuity icon. If a student has difficulty logging in, please contact your school.

Parents should monitor when students are testing when at all possible. Parents can also obtain access to view their child’s progress in a course in the Edgenuity parent portal by contacting the lab manager or school specific contact. Don't forget to notify the school lab manager or specified school contact when course is complete!

For some parents, this may be the first time they have checked a student progress report online. You can get to progress reports and report cards using your OCPS Parent Portal account in just four clicks. The link below is a step-by-step YouTube video to show you how.
