Infinite Campus Portal saves time, trouble for parents

Saving time and trouble for parents is what the Nelson County Schools online Infinite Campus (IC) portal for parents is all about. That and eliminating a big chunk of the bothersome paperwork traditionally associated with the back-to-school rush.

The Nelson County school system is on a mission to eliminate the need for the big pile of school forms parents have been accustomed to filling out at the beginning of each school year.

The key to that happiness resides in the school system’s IC portal for parents by way of filling out the household and contact profile online instead of on paper.

Using the IC Parent Portal will save at least 17 pages of previously required paperwork per child.

Chief Information Officer David Coffing estimates this will save at least 17 pages of previously required paperwork – per child. “Multiply that times the number of children you have in school, and you’ll begin to get the picture of just what the time savings could be for many families,” Coffing said.

Parents need to take only two steps to benefit from the change.

Step 1 is for parents to simply open their parent portal by May 15. Step 2 will follow that date and will be for parents to actually fill out or update online their household and contact profile.

To complete Step 1

  • If you already have an active parent portal account, simply login by May 15. If you do not have an active account, visit your school secretary for assistance and to obtain your unique parent portal code. Then login to your account by May 15.

Your IC portal can be found under the parent tab on your school’s website.

All those who login by May 15 will be entered into a random drawing for a $250 gift card.

To complete Step 2

  • Login to your parent portal and complete online your household and contact profile. The profile window will be available July 1 for people who currently have students in Nelson County Schools. On July 17, the window will become available to anyone who is new to our school system.

All those who complete both steps will be entered into another random drawing, this time for a $500 gift card.

So, say goodbye to all the back-to-school paperwork and hassle. Say hello to your parent portal account and the future.
