What is the district doing to protect my children’s privacy?
Your children’s privacy is extremely important to us; as such, the district has elected not to send user names and passwords via US mail. Instead, passwords will only be issued after your application has been thoroughly reviewed by district personnel. If the information you’ve supplied to us online does not match the information we have on file, your application will be denied. Once your application has been approved your account will remain active as long as you have children attending the Rocky Point UFSD.

What about security?
The eSchoolPortal utilizes 128-bit encryption and is hosted in a secure Network Operation Center which is professionally monitored around the clock. The eSchoolPortal represents a snapshot of data that is contained in the district’s “live” student information system; therefore, even in the unlikely event that the system was compromised, permanent records could not be altered in any way.

How often is the data updated in eSchoolPortal?

If you have questions when you are viewing the information in each tab area, be sure to refer to the "last updated" message. Grade books for grades 6-12 are updated by the end of each month. Teachers update once each month.

How soon are progress reports and report card grades posted after a reporting period ends?
Progress reports and report card grades will not be posted on the eSchoolPortal until the reports are finalized and ready to be mailed home.
