Parent Access to Student Grades

  • Pinnacle Gradebook: Sherman ISD Parent Viewer for Grades and Attendance

    Please Note: We are aware that some newer browsers are having difficulties with the ParentPortal. We are working on these issues and hope to have them resolved soon. In the mean time, we have verified that the site is working with Firefox and Google Chrome. We suggest downloading and installing either one to use the ParentPortal.

     
    The parent viewer for Pinnacle gradebook is operational for parents. If you have children enrolled in Sherman ISD we would like to provide you the opportunity to set up an account to view your child’s grades online.

    The ability to monitor your child's grades, attendance and any assignment information can now be securely viewed from your Internet Browser at home. We are providing this access through our Pinnacle Internet Viewer (PIV) feature. This secured access requires an Internet connection and a confidential user name and password created by the parent.

    If you have a user name and password, click on the following link to login in and view your student's grades and attendance:    SISD Parent Viewer
