Q: What is Family Access?
A: Family Access is a convenient home-to-school collaboration tool that allows parents/guardians of all elementary school students, both middle schools, and Moline High School students to keep track of their children’s academic progress online via an easy-to-use web site.

Parents/guardians may visit the password-protected site to view their students' schedules, grades, assignments, and daily and period attendance.

Parents/guardians can also easily communicate with teachers via e-mail. They can view their child's student information through the Family Access web site after they have registered and received a login and password. To maintain the integrity of student data, the Family Access application is a "read-only" system.
