Parents of students in secondary schools will also receive report cards and progress reports by email rather than by postal mail.

Parents of students in elementary schools will receive report cards by email. The schools will also continue to distribute report cards to the students.

In the future, additional items will be available through electronic communication such as assignment grades in the portal, parent accounts on SchoolFusion, email notifications of Blackboard Connect calls, etc.  You will be notified by email when new items become available.

How do I sign up for the Wayne Schools Web Parent Portal?

You may now contact the office of your child’s school to sign up for electronic communication.  Once you provide the school with your email address(es), please allow up to 5 business days for your parent portal account to be created and activated.

At that time, go to http://parentportal.wayneschools.com and click the “Forgot Password/New User Registration” link (below the Log In button).

On the password screen, please enter your email address and click the Submit button with the mouse (do not click the Enter key).  A green confirmation message will be displayed if your email address has been validated.

You will receive a new password by email.  Please check your spam folder if you do not see it right away.  (The temporary password emails are sent by noreply@wayneschools.com)

Return to the Portal and log on using your email name and the password from the email (you may copy and paste the password from the mail).  This time you should get a green confirmation message that your password has been reset.

You may then change your temporary password immediately.  When doing so, please be sure to click the Change Password button with the mouse (simply hitting Enter on the keyboard will cancel your password change).  You will see a green confirmation message.

I requested a temporary/new password. Why didn't I receive the email?

Please check your spam and deleted folder if you do not see it right away; the temporary password emails are sent by noreply@wayneschools.com. If you still don't see the email, add noreply@wayneschools.com to your email contacts. Then return to the Portal and once again request a new password.

I went to log on to the Parent Portal and it said my email address was invalid. Why?

You will get this message if:

  • You didn't first register your email with CommunityPass. See CommunityPass FAQs.
  • You are logging in the first time and are entering your address in the email field. Instead, click on the link for New User Registration:
  • There was a discrepancy between the demographic information provided in CommunityPass and your child's data in our Student Information System data. In this situation, we review student records manually in order to ensure student security. Please email parentportal@wayneschools.com and provide your name, address, and the missing child(ren)'s name/school. We will determine if this is the case and the information that needs to be updated.

I registered for electronic communication.  Will I still get paper report cards/progress reports also?

Elementary school parents  will continue to receive report cards in the usual manner, as well as receive an email with their children's report card attached.

Secondary school parents will receive an email with their children’s report card/progress report attached, instead of a postal letter, and may also view this information online via the Parent Portal. (You may opt out of electronic communication at any time and resume paper report cards; however, if you choose to do so, you will no longer have access to the Parent Web Portal.)
