With a Single Sign On account a parent/guardian will be able to see information about multiple students using a single username and password. In order to use this feature, you must first create an account.
Parent/guardians will need to have a Parent Portal Access ID and Access Password to create a Single Sign On account. If the student is a returning student you should have the information already. If your student is new to the school you can get the information from your school.

Once the account is created parents will also be able to change their passwords to sign on and if the username or password is forgotten parents will have the ability to reset the information.
CURRENT STUDENTS:The Access ID and Password used to access Parent Portal in the previous school year is still active and will need to be used to create a Single Sign On account. If you have forgotten your Access ID and Password you will need to go to your child's school and present a picture ID to receive it.
NEW STUDENTS:If you have a child who is new to BCSC you will need to go to your child's school and pick up your Parent Portal Access ID and Password from the front desk. You will be asked for a picture ID proving your identity as a parent or guardian.
NOTE: If you have children in more than one school, you will need an Access ID and password for each student. You will need to provide an ID proving you are the parent or guardian of the child when you pick up your child’s Access ID and Password.
