A campus portal is a secure online tool that U.S. school districts provide as a free service to parents and legal guardians of schoolchildren. It gives parents 24/7 access to up-to-date information about their child's progress and a means to get in touch with the class teacher.
The information parents can access includes exam results, class schedules, assignments, attendance and report cards as well as announcements from the school and notices of emergencies. Parents benefit by having instant access to their child's educational development and can help to improve their performance by working closely with teachers. School districts benefit by reducing paperwork and labor costs and improving communication between parents and teachers.
