PlusPortals Step-by-Step Guide
MPCS is once again using the online Student and Parent PlusPortals! New parents in grades PK3-12 will have received an e-mail with instructions on how to set up your personal login as a parent (different than the student login information you recieved a few weeks ago). Returning parents should be able to log in with credentials you established last year (if you forgot, just "reset" your password using the main email you used for enrollment!) Once your credentials are entered, it's easy to sign in via the homepage of the main MPCS website.
Follow these steps to view student's schedules, progress, and grade reports:
1. Toggle the Sign In Menu
Locate and click the "Sign In" link at the top right corner of the school website at https://www.mtparanschool.com.
2. Sign In as Parent or a Student
Use your new or established user name (e-mail used during enrollment) and password to sign in to the Parent/Student PlusPortals.
Parents may sign in as their student, or with their parent e-mail and password to view all students within the portal. If you can't remember your password, just reset it using your original email submitted during enrollment.
Students may sign in here with their own MPCS student e-mail and device password to check their progress.
3. View the Course List
The first home screen shows you a list of your student(s), their course list(s), and overall progress grades so far. You can click on the class to drill down, or on the grades for each of the assignments directly. You can also review all courses by clicking on the "progress" tab.
4. Drill Down Into Courses and Progress
Once you select the course by clicking either the course name or the "classroom" tab, you can view assignments and assessment results as well as toggle between courses.
5. View Full Schedule and Details
You can click the "more" button and then select "school" to view the student schedule in block format.
Attendance records and selection by individual classes can be viewed in this area also.
Parents may also access both the STAFF and PARENT directories within the password-protected online portal under the "Directory" tab.
E-mails or messages sent by teachers will also route to the student's MPCS email address in Outlook in addition to the PlusPortal. Please note that teachers will not use the e-locker or calendar options within PlusPortals since assignments are given through Google Classroom. Progress Reports in all grades will be posted in PlusPortals after each semester/marking period.
For full tutorials on how to use PlusPortals, just click the "Help" button in the upper right corner of the portal window.
6. Download the App
Parents may download the mobile app called "ParentPlus" by Rediker in the app store and sign in to view schedules and grades. CLICK HERE to find it in the app store.
The "StudentPlus" app is also available for student access.
