Dear Parents/Guardians:

Because we recognize the importance of working closely with parents, we are pleased to announce that parents now have the ability to access their child’s school records via School Tool, our student management system. Parents who have provided us with a valid email address will be able to log in to their account and review their child’s contact information, report card grades, attendance information, and discipline record. In addition, parents of middle and high school students will be able to see their child’s current course assignments and corresponding grades.

To access your child's student records:

  1. Go to http://schooltool.potsdam.k12.ny.us
  2. In the username field, enter your full email address. This must be the same email address you provided to your child’s school on the emergency contact card distributed at the beginning of the school year.
  3. Leave the password field blank.
  4. Click on the Login button.
  5. A blue link will appear that will read: New User or Forgot Password. Click on this link.
  6. You will be prompted to re-enter your user name, which is your full email address.
  7. Click on the Submit button.
  8. Almost immediately, you will receive a temporary password via email.
  9. Copy this password and enter it in the password field on the School Tool homepage.
  10. Once you are logged in, click on the Account tab to change your password. 

Once you have logged in to your account, you will see a blue triangle to the left of your child’s name. Click on this to access their school record. You will see tabs for your child’s contact information, attendance, discipline, grades, etc. To see your child’s current class grades, click on the assignments tab. You can select a particular class or view all assignments chronologically.

If you encounter a problem while logging in to School Tool, please contact Ms. Davida M. Martin in the district office by calling 265-2000 and selecting the option for the district office. You may also email her at dmartin@potsdam.k12.ny.us. If you find information in your child’s record that you feel is incorrect, please contact the main office secretary in your child’s school building. Finally, if you have not provided us with a current email address and would now like to do so, please contact either Ms. Martin or the main office secretary in your child’s school building.

We hope in providing you with ready access to your child’s school record, we can strengthen the important connection between home and school. It is by working together that we can best help your child succeed.

Sincerely,

Joann Chambers
