What is Parent Connect?

Parent Connect is a new program with Petaluma City Schools. It allows parents to log in and see information on their child, including class schedule, attendance, 6 week progress reports and other information.

Last year several teachers piloted a grade book that interfaced with the school's attendance program. If your child's teacher is using this new grade book program, your chid's current grade will also be available. There are only a few teachers using this feature, but as we go on, we expect more teachers to use this feature.


How do I create an account to access the grades?

While at the Parent Connect sign in page, select "Create New Account."

 

Step 1: Choose "Parent" or "Student"

 

Step 2: Type in your email address, and choose a password for your aeries account. It is NOT asking you for your email password!

 

Step 3: Aeries will send an email to you from the address, "DoNotReply@pet.k12.ca.us" It will have a link to "Cornfirm this email address." This verifies the email address you provided works.

 

Once you click the link in the email, it will give you a "Thank you" message and a "Click Here" to get to Step 4.

 

Step 4: Now you need to enter the information that will identify which student is yours. Currently, the only way to get the required information is from a letter the district sends to your home. This is to prevent fraudulent accounts access to your information.

 

Step 5: You will be presented with a list of people that are listed as contacts for your child, so pick your name from the list. You should be there! If you are not one of the already listed people, there is a, "none of the above ," option.

 

Step 6: You will get another "Click Here."

 

It will take you to the log in page, you are ready to start!

What if I do not have an email address?

You need an email address. There are many places that host free email, like hotmail.com

What if I have problems with Parent Connect?

As of now, if you have any issues creating an account, email Mr. Lang, and I will see what I can do. If you are reading this, but your child is not at PJHS I probably can't help you.

How many people can look at my child's grades?

The letter with the information is mailed home, but once you have that you can make as many accounts as you need, so mom and dad can both make accounts, as well as your student's tutor, mentor, or anyone else you care to give the passcodes to. Be aware that this gives them access to a lot of your personal information - all the information you now have access to, so check out the site, see what is there, and make sure you want to give them this access. They stay at grandma's after school? Sure! You are paying some college kid to tutor? Maybe not!

What if I have more than one child?

If you have more then one student in any of the Petaluma City Schools, 7th through 12th grade, your one account can cover all of them. Once you make an account, using the passcodes for one of your students, log in, and in the top right is a drop down menu titled, "Current Student." One of the drop down choices is to, "Add additional student not currently listed." Of course this only works if you have passcodes for both of them.

Why is my child's name listed twice in the dropdown menu?

When the school year is ending, and the 8th graders names are being added at the high school, in the dropdown menu, you will also see your student AGAIN, appearing as a 9th grader and "inactive."

How long will my account last?

This acount will last until your child is no longer in the Petaluma City Schools District, so until they graduate high school, or you transfer out, it should work.

How do I find the grades?

Your options are:

Gradebook This is where you will find current grades for your child, for any of their classes where the teacher is using the Aeries gradebook progam.
Current Assignments I have no idea how this works. Ignore it for now!
Grades This will get you s report just like the mailed-home progress reports, broken down by grading periods
Transcripts This will get you an UNOFFICIAL transcript, semester by semester.

 

"Gradebook," is the option that gets you assignment by assignment details on your child's grades, and there will be a menu to select which gradebook you want to see, if more than one of your student's teachers are using the Aeries Grade Book. We encouraged teachers to try out the program, but as far as I know there are only a few who are actively using it, all of them in the science department.

Once you click the class you wish to see, you will get a detailed report of their grade. Missing assignments are highlighted in RED.
