InformationNOW Parent Portal
 
InformationNOW Parent Portal is a program that allows parents to review information related to grades, attendance, homework assignments, discipline records and other student data from the current year.  In order to access records, a student must be enrolled in Elmore County Schools.  The information you view is live data.

Each legal guardian will have one login to view all of their children.  If you have more than one login to view your children even if they attend multiple schools please contact your school so they may correct this.  Also, if the list of children under your login is not correct also please contact that child's school.

Information for logging in is sent annually.  If you did not receive this information please contact your student's school.
