Illuminate Home Connection for State-Required Assessment Student Score Reports, Attendance, Schedules, Enrollment and MORE!
Posted 4/15/19

The Fremont Unified School District will soon be rolling out a component of our student information system, the Illuminate Home Connection parent portal, that will allow you to access more information about your student from home.

 

• What is Illuminate Home Connection?

Illuminate Home Connection is an online portal that parents and guardians can use to access information about their student(s). This will allow you to view your student’s attendance, prior standardized testing results, schedule, and other data.

 

• When can I access the Home Connection parent portal?

You'll receive an email containing the Home Connection link along with your personal and unique access key. These will be emailed on May 1st. You’ll need this access key to create your Home Connection account.

 

• How will I receive my Access Key?

Personal and unique access keys will be sent to each email address we have on file for the student’s parents or guardians. Please contact the school office to make sure we have the most up-to-date contact information.

 

• What if I don’t receive my Access Key?

Please contact your school office if you do not receive an email on May 1st with your Access Key.

 

• What if I don’t have internet access?

Paper copies of reports will be available upon request from the school office; more information will be forthcoming. If you need to update contact information for your student, you can visit your school office. The Illuminate Home Connection parent portal will also be accessible on mobile devices.

 

• Why are we rolling out this portal now?

Standardized testing results (e.g., SBAC, ELPAC, P.E. testing) will no longer be distributed on paper like they were in the past. The Home Connection portal allows families to view these results electronically. This is more environmentally friendly and allows quicker access to test results. The portal is also in use for schools who are piloting online MAZE Day to gather information electronically instead of requiring families to complete multiple paper forms. The schools that are currently piloting online MAZE Day are: Azevada Elementary School, Cabrillo Elementary School, Leitch Elementary School, Warm Springs Elementary School, Weibel Elementary School, and Thornton Junior High School. We hope to include more schools in the future and this transition will help make this a possibility.

After you create your account, you'll have access to the Home Connection portal. You'll be able to update and add Emergency Contacts, telephone numbers and email addresses, as well as other information. In the 2019-20 school year, this same portal will also enable you to view your student's attendance, progress reports, grades, assessments, and more!
