Synergy ParentVUE

Synergy ParentVUE provides secure access for parents and guardians to view their child’s contact, attendance, discipline, and grade information as it is stored in our system. In addition, parents and guardians will be able to submit absence excuses and modify selected contact information.

Parents and guardians with rights to educational records will be allowed to create and access ParentVUE accounts.  Legal documentation must be provided to remove ParentVUE access for a parent/guardian. ParentVUE accounts should not be shared with students, as the account can be used to request edits, submit absence excuses, and send emails to staff in the account holder’s name.

Authorization for non-parent/guardian contacts to have access to ParentVUE will require the written approval of all parents and guardians who have the right to make educational decisions for the child.

All users will be required to accept the User Agreement before accessing ParentVUE.  Violation of these terms may result in discontinuation of ParentVUE access.  The full terms can be viewed at the end of this document. If you have other issues setting up or accessing your account, or if you suspect it has been accessed inappropriately, please contact synergy@rcscsd.org for assistance.

 Students in grades 6-12 have access to StudentVUE via their school Google accounts, which can be used to view grades, attendance, and schedule information.  

Updating Information

If you find incorrect information or have changes that need to be made, you can now update the information independently.

Some Tips:

  • If you make changes to any information, be sure to click the blue “Update Account” button to save and submit the changes.

  • If you need to add or update a Custody or Order of Protection document, please go to the Student Information module and select “Edit Information.” Documents can be uploaded at the bottom of the page.

  • Parents can submit an absence excuse by selecting the Report Absence button.  Excuses will be reviewed by office staff before they are accepted into the system and updated.
