Parent Portal and Report Cards
Report cards will be online this year. If you have a parent portal account you will be able to see your child’s report card by November 21, 2017. If you had not created a portal account but had supplied District 54 with an email address, then you received an email during the first week of October with a direct link to sign up for the portal. If you do not receive email but would like to create a portal account, please contact our office. If you are unable to access the parent portal and require a paper copy of your student’s report card, please contact our office at 847-357-5700.
