Q. I currently receive School News Notifier
(SNN) alerts from the district. Does this mean that my e-mail address is
on file for the purpose of creating a SchoolTool Parent Portal account?
A. SNN accounts are completely separate from the SchoolTool
database--meaning, just because you receive SNN alerts from the district
does not mean that your e-mail address is on file with our student
management system. They are two distinct applications and cannot be
cross-referenced for the purpose of creating a parent portal account.
Q. Do I need any special software to access
SchoolTool Parent Portal?
A. No, you do not need any special software to access the portal.
Parents only need Internet access. Please note: SchoolTool seems to work
best when used with either the Internet Explorer or Safari browser.
Q. What will I find once I log on?
A. You will be able to see scheduling information and attendance
information for all of your child's classes through SchoolTool Parent
Portal. For most classes at the high school and middle school, you will
be able to see assignments and due dates, as well as grades on previous
work and class grades. You will also be able to send emails directly to
teachers and view important messages and reminders throughout the school
year. For more information, please read our guide for parents (PDF).
Q. Will I be able to see all grades received on assignments?
A. Schoharie is presently phasing in full use of the program. At this
stage, not all classes are using the grade book feature, so assignments
and grades are not posted for all courses. For all classes that are
using the grade book, all assignments will have grades posted. Please
remember that the any grades reported in the portal are grades in
progress—the only official grades are those on Report Cards sent home at
the end of each quarter.
Q. What exactly is an assignment?
A. An assignment is not just homework, but could also refer to tests,
quizzes, participation, class projects, etc.
