Frequently Asked Questions

Are all of St. Lucie Public Schools using Family Access?

Each school provides Family Access as a service to parents and guardians, but the information provided by each school will vary depending on the age of the student and the type of information available.

I have more than one student in the district, will I need multiple accounts/passwords?

No. Using one account/password, you can access records for all of your students, even if they are attending different schools within the district.

When I log on to Family Access, I lose my connection after three to five minutes. Why?

Family Access has a default security setting that will terminate your connection if your computer is idle for longer than three to five minutes. This feature is designed to protect against unauthorized access and can not be changed.

I have forgotten my username and/or lost my password, what should I do?

On the Login screen, please click the Forgot my Login/Password link. Fill in your email address and if you have an email address on file, then your username and password will be emailed to you. If you do not receive the email, or accidentally lock your account from too many login attempts, please contact your child’s school to assist you with resetting it.

With all the talk about Internet safety and security, how do I know Family Access is safe?

Family Access uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption as the security layer for data presented on the Web. This is the same encryption system used by sites that accept credit card numbers and other personal data that must be secure. Each individual, whether student, parent, or staff member, must be given a username and password and be designated as a member of a household linked to a student in order to view Family Access information.

Can I get my high school student's transcript through Family Access?

Transcripts are not available through Family Access. They may be requested through the Student Records Department.
