There are two ways districts can provide guardians with SchooLinks access. Reach out to your student's counselor or district admin to find out which of the following methods should be followed:

Synced Guardian Emails

If your district synced your guardian email with SchooLinks, you can access your guardian account by going to or clicking the button below:

  • If you have a Google email on file with the district, simply click Log in with Google on the right-hand side of the login page, then select your connected gmail account.

  • If you do not have a Google email on file with the district, click Forgot password below the blue log in button. Enter in the email on file with the district and click Reset password.

  • An email will be sent for you to create your SchooLinks password.
