A Key to Your Child’s Success

Parent involvement can improve students’ behavior, attendance, and achievement. At Charlotte Secondary, we strive to foster high-quality, successful parent involvement. Here, you will find some links to help you stay connected, informed and involved with your child’s education. Whether you need to access your child’s grades or you are looking for a form or policy information, our parent page is your one-stop place.

Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL ) found that students with involved parents, no matter their income or background, are more likely to:

  • Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
  • Be promoted, pass their classes and earn credits
  • Attend school regularly
  • Have better social skills, show improved behavior and adapt well to school
  • Graduate and go on to post-secondary education

FERPA Notification

Annually, Public School Units (PSUs) inform students, parents, and guardians of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Statute: 20 U.S.C. § 1232g. Regulations: 34 CFR Part 99). This Act was designated to protect the privacy of educational records. Public School Units (PSUs) must annually notify parents and eligible students of their rights under FERPA 34 CFR § 99.7 which guides the sharing of student directory information and allows them the option to request that the school not disclose this information.

Beginning in February, 2020, parents and guardians must make an intentional decision to opt-in or opt-out of the sharing of information. The purpose is to ensure parents and guardians are aware of opportunities available to them and to assist families with the updating of selections each year. When parents initially sign in to PowerSchool Parent Portal, they must choose if they desire to share student contact information per FERPA guidelines. Additionally, parents/guardians of high school students must select if they want to share contact information with colleges, universities and the military.


Each user of the PowerSchool Parent Portal will be required to answer the applicable questions based on grade level. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zocVrjWzh5bfQFqLurWxm-2hN-GBn1cL8eEQG88fwyg/edit?usp=sharing
