What is Skyward?
Skyward is our student information system (SIS), which replaced PowerSchool. Skyward is the official data management system for state reporting. This is the secured website where final grades, attendance, discipline, and important demographic information is stored and transmitted to the state.
I’m having trouble logging into Skyward? What do I do?
This is the same website that parents used to register students for school, so everyone should have an existing account. One thing that is different this year is each parent has their own account with a unique username and password. If you have problems logging into your account, you can reset your own password by clicking on the “forgot your login/password” link from the login page of Skyward Family Access. Your username is in the following format: firstname.lastname. Once you click the forgot password link and type in your username, it will send you a reset link to the email address on file. You may need to look in your junk/spam folder if you do not receive the email in your inbox. This process is the same for students and parents. Once you are successfully logged in, parents should be able to see details for all your GMSD children. If you need assistance with Skyward, please contact Chris Cooper ([email protected]).
Where can I find my child’s grades?
The Skyward gradebook will reflect the student’s official grade and will include all graded assignments. Once your child’s school has opened the gradebook for viewing, you will have access to all of your child’s grades and assignments, just as you did in PowerSchool. Each school admin team will determine when the gradebook tab will be opened, which has historically been after Labor Day.
