CLS First Quarter Progress Reports (K-1) and Report Cards (2-5) Available Through the Parent Portal on Monday, Nov 30, 2015

The First Quarter of the 2015-16 school year has come to an end, and with it the arrival of the First Quarter Progress Reports/Report Cards.  As we have in the past, we are providing Chancellor Livingston parents with the benefit of password-protected on-line access to their student’s academic reports in SchoolTool, the District’s student information database.

We are making this available in an effort to improve our communications to parents about student achievement, as well as to save taxpayer money on paper and postage and to make better use of our clerical resources.

In order to access the SchoolTool “parent portal” to be able to view a child’s Progress Report (in grades K and 1) and Report Card (in grades 2-5) for the 2015-16 school year, parents should follow the instructions that have been e-mailed to them this week.  In addition, they can visit the District website ( - click on the link titled “Families” across the top, then “SchoolTool Parent Portal” in the drop-down menu). Parents must use the primary e-mail address that they have on file with the Rhinebeck Central School District and at which they received a recent e-mail from the District on this topic.  This will enable parents to log in to SchoolTool for the first time and set their own 8+ digit password for future access. 

The Parent Portal will be open and available to CLS parents on Monday, November 30th — please note that this is a different date than the portal opening for BMS/RHS.

If you have any questions or problems using SchoolTool, please contact Mr. King, your child’s Principal, by telephone or e-mail ([email protected]) so we can connect you with the necessary assistance. 

Please note that since we have completed the transition for CLS parents to access electronic quarterly grade reporting in June 2014, we no longer send home a hard copy of your child’s Report Card with the students, unless you had formally requested us to do so last year or, as a new Kindergarten Parent request us to do so in the coming weeks.

Finally, we thank parents in advance for their cooperation in transitioning to a quicker, more efficient, and less expensive means of communicating about their child’s academic progress.  We look forward feedback on this process.
