Starting in 2017-2018 school year, the District is moving to a new fully integrated Student Information System, Synergy by Edupoint. This one system will replace both EGUSD’s current student information system (SISWeb) and School Loop. Synergy will provide access to both parents and students, just like School Loop. However, with Synergy, Parents/Guardians will use a single sign-on to access all of their children’s information regardless of school. Parents will access the portal using ParentVUE and students will access using StudentVUE.

ParentVUE

ParentVUE helps parents/guardians stay informed and connected by providing day-to-day insight into their child’s academic experience.

ParentVUE Portal Features

  • Single sign-on – one login for each parent, which will allow access to all students associated with that parent across the district in any grade or school
  • Big picture information – ability  to view attendance, immunization compliance, transcripts, graduation status, and more
  • Ability to update information  – emergency contacts, physician and phone numbers
  • Grades and assignments – know if your student is on track academically and know when assignments have been given and are due
  • Class website access – know what is happening in your children’s classroom(s)
  • Ability to stay connected with teachers – communicate with teachers
  • Web Portal and Mobile App – Easy access from anywhere and anytime

Parents will need to register for a ParentVUE account using an activation code and instructions given out by each school. Instructions on how to register and update information in the system will be included on the activation code handout. If you lose your activation code or need another one, please contact your student’s school.


Synergy FAQs
ParentVUE – Frequently Asked Questions/Help

 

Q: Do I have to go to my child’s school to get the information necessary to create a ParentVUE Account?

Yes. We want to make sure that your child’s information is secure, so this needs to be an in-person transaction.


Q: Can I use the same login for all my children enrolled in Elk Grove Unified Schools?

Yes. Your ParentVUE login gives you access to information on all your children enrolled at Elk Grove Unified Schools.


Q: I have multiple children attending EGUSD schools, but I’m only seeing some of them in ParentVue, what should I do?

If you are not seeing one or more of your children when logged into ParentVUE, it can be an indication of a duplicate parent record for you in the system (your name could be spelled differently, etc.). Please contact your student’s school (the student you are unable to see in ParentVUE) to correct this issue.


Q: Can I login to ParentVUE with my email?

The Parent email will not work as the ParentVUE User ID unless the email was entered as the User ID at the time of ParentVUE registration.


Q: What if I forget my ParentVUE password?

Click the “Forget your password?” link under the login button on theEGUSD ParentVUE login page.  

Enter the primary email address that you set up for your account or your account user ID and click Send Email.

The system will email you a link to change your password. If you have lost access to the primary email account, you will need to go to your child’s school and get a new activation code. The school can also look up your account user ID.


Q: I clicked on “Forget your password?” in ParentVUE and never received an email response. What do I do?

First, check to be sure that you are using the primary email account that you used when activating your ParentVUE account.

Second, in order to access your EGUSD ParentVUE account, you must go to the Elk Grove Unified School District ParentVUE portal. https://ca-egusd-psv.edupoint.com

It has come to our attention that several parents are doing Google searches for ParentVUE and clicking on the first results – which is most likely a link to another district’s ParentVUE portal. In this case, parents would not receive an email, due to not being registered users for that school district.


Q: What email address is the ParentVUE “Forget your password?” email sent from?

The email will come from noreply@egusd.net. Please make sure it has not been blocked or categorized as spam from your personal email provider.

Q: How come grades are entered every few days for one of my children, whereas for my other child, it’s less frequently?

Given the variety of classroom and instructional reasons, some grade books may be updated more frequently than others. For example, due to the complexity of the assignment and the time it takes to ensure that the scoring is careful and thorough, some assignments such as research papers or special projects may take longer to grade than others.


Q: I’m concerned about the fluctuation from day to day/week to week when it comes to my child’s overall grade. Why does it change so often?

Course grades may seem inaccurate or fluctuate from day to day/week to week for several reasons:

  • Early in the grading period, there may be fewer graded assignments, and so occasional high or low grades will have a greater influence on the cumulative grade/score.
  • Teachers may have weighted some assignments more than others – so certain assignments may count more heavily towards a cumulative grade.
  • Teachers may allow students to redo an assignment in certain circumstances. Assignment scores and cumulative grades may increase as a result. Or is might just be that updates, changes, or corrections are being made to the grade book.

Q: Can I check my child’s past report cards in ParentVUE?

No, you can’t view any report cards prior to the 2017-18 school year in ParentVUE. Please check with your child’s school to get a copy of his/her report cards prior to the 2017-18 school year. From 2017-18 on, ParentVUE will contain all report cards.
