Announcing Family Access by SKYWARD

**needed for this year's online enrollment (new and returning students)**

Louisburg USD 416 is pleased to announce the implementation of Family Access by Skyward, Inc.

What is Skyward Family Access? 

Skyward’s Family Access provided by USD 416 is a web-based information and communication center designed to provide parents and guardians with the answer to “What did you do at school today?” 

What are the benefits of using Skyward?

  • It is available anytime, from anywhere via a secure web connection.
  • Skyward keeps teachers and administration in touch with parents, and parents in touch with students’ daily work. Families with more than one student also have easy access to all of their students’ information in one site.
  • Message Center – Teachers and administrators can post information to inform parents about their child, school and upcoming classroom events.
  • Parents can make online payments for food service and outstanding fees, such as textbook, preschool, all-day kindergarten and more.
  • Parents can directly respond to teacher messages via either the Message Center or email.

What can parents see? 

Parents and guardians have the ability to see a wide range of information, including:

  • attendance - including reasons for absence
  • current assignments, including missing assignments
  • grades 
  • current food service balances and past payments
  • fee management
  • complete schedule information with teacher information
  • immunization records
  • emergency information

How do you get access to Skyward? 
In order for you to start using Skyward Family Access, you will need a login and password. By signing and returning the
Revised SKYWARD Credential Request Form in person to your school’s office or the district office, you authorize the Louisburg School District to provide you with a unique login and password. Once you receive your login and password, you simply log on to USD 416’s Skyward portal and you will have instant access to student(s) information. 

It will even allow you to help select your student's secondary courses in the spring. Family/Student Access is provided by Louisburg USD 416 as a free service and will be available to all parents and children enrolled in the district.

We are very excited about how Skyward Family Access will help you stay informed abut your student's progress and hope that we can use this tool to create a stronger relationship between parents and our school community.

We appreciate your feedback to date.  Photo ID must be presented to protect student data.  A revised form has been attached. 

We anticipate getting credentials out by the end of July once our online registration configuration is completed.
