The Johnston Community School District uses Infinite Campus as our Student Information System. Infinite Campus is a web-based system that can be accessed for information by parents for information regarding their students. Once logged into the Infinite Campus Portal, you will be able to see:
If you do not have a Parent Portal account, complete the form below to request one.
If you have an account, but have forgotten your username or password, follow the instructions in Parent Portal to recover your username/reset your password. You need to have previously set your Parent Portal image preferences and have access to the email address that you entered for password reset purposes. If you are unable to recover your username and password through the Parent Portal, you may then complete the form below.
If you require other assistance with Infinite Campus besides creating an account or obtaining your username and password, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your request. Please be sure to include your name, child(ren)’s names and birthdates, home address, email address, and the specific assistance you need. Requests submitted through the form above are processed more frequently than those submitted by email, but are limited to account creation, username recovery, and password resets.
Infinite Campus fosters communication between our schools and students/parents. One of the communication tools in Infinite Campus includes Teacher Messenger. Teacher Messenger provides teachers with the ability to post messages to the portal and the option to send messages to registered e-mail addresses. To ensure that you receive an e-mail message, your e-mail address must be entered into the portal in the ‘Contact Preferences’ section. Please note that messages sent via the Teacher Messenger are sent from a generic account and replies to that account will not be delivered to a person. Attachments can be sent from district staff through Messenger with the messages.
Secondary students have accounts that give them access to their own individual information; elementary students do not have accounts. Staff members use Infinite Campus for student demographic information and the online grade book.
Secondary students will need to use Infinite Campus to view their grades, as teachers do not post grade information in classrooms. During the school year, students in grades 9-11 will also use Infinite Campus to register for classes for the following school year. Student accounts are valid until the student is not enrolled in the district. Students needing Infinite Campus assistance should contact their school office staff.
Students Infinite Campus account usernames and passwords will be changed in June 2016 to their school network username and password.
Elementary students do not use Infinite Campus like the secondary students; therefore will not receive student account login information. Parents of elementary students will receive account login information. Viewable Portal information for elementary students includes: attendance, fees, and schedule.
If you need your account re-set, contact your school office. Elementary students do not have portal accounts.

Attendance provides both summary and detail information about absences and tardies.
