Parent Resources

Parents and families are an integral part of MSC.  Helping create a team of support for our students is at the heart of what we do.  This page is dedicated to helpful links and resources for parents that help navigate our systems and access tools for learning.

If you have more ideas, please help us add to this page and contribute to our resources for our parent community.

Getting Started

Parent Portal

Families can access their students’ data, including grades and account information, through the MSC Parent Portal.  This portal is securely linked with your MSBSD iParent account information, so we have included instructions here on how to access and use this portal.  Please reach out to the front office or your advisor for help if you are still having any issues with this tool.

Logging In

Please log into your ParentVUE account.

  1. Login with your Username and Password.
  2. Click “Home School Sites” in the left column.
  3. Choose Mat-Su Central.
Submitting Reimbursements

When submitting reimbursements make sure the receipt is easy to read, has a date, and the total at the bottom.   Remember: You can add multiple receipts before you hit submit.  Please see your advisor for any questions.

Submitting Grades

Mat-Su Central’s Parent Portal supports submitting grades electronically. You can submit grades, work samples, and narratives using the easy-to-navigate drop downs and file uploader. See the video below.

Parent Portal Training
MSCS hosts Parent Portal Trainings for parents:
Receive hands on guidance to help with understanding and navigating The Parent Portal, specifically for reimbursements and grades. Individuals should come with ParentVUE login and should also bring any receipts, grades, narratives, and work samples that they need support in learning how to submit. It is also recommended, if possible, that they bring the device they plan to use for future submissions, whether that be a laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

Days: Thursdays

Location: Mat-Su Central School, Wasilla Campus (Technology Room)

Online Program Resources

MAP
Measures of Academic Progress – MAP

MAP is an assessment tool that helps parents view their student’s progress and compare their scores to others around the country and in the district in their same grade.  Not only does MAP provide basic information, it also has instructional information and suggestions for families and advisors.  Lastly, there are many other resources that utilize MAP’s scoring guides to help create specific units of study for students in different areas.

The goal of this area is to help parents know what some of those resources are and how to access them once your student has taken the MAP assessment.

Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level—precisely measuring student progress and growth for each individual.
