The DeKalb County School District announced its new and updated campus portal, a confidential and secure website that allows parents and guardians to log in and view their children’s progress in school.

“The campus portal strengthens the partnership between our schools and our parents and guardians,” said Michael Thurmond, superintendent of the school district. “With [the] campus portal, academic information is shared confidentially and quickly, allowing parents to know right away if their students are on the right track or need academic help. [The] campus portal helps keep our students on track, and re-establishes the bond between schools and homes.”

Parents and guardians designated with legal rights to student records may receive a campus portal account. In order to create an account, parents and guardians will need to retrieve an activation code and create a username and password. Parents with access to the district’s previous parent assistant portal may use the same user ID and password.

For those who have forgotten their password, view the account management video at www.dekalb.k12.ga.us to learn how to reset the password. For those who have forgotten their user ID, visit https://campus.dekalb.k12.ga.us/campus/portal/dekalb.jsp and click on DCSD portal account activation. They will be prompted to enter the child’s seven-digit school district student number, the child’s nine-digit Social Security number and the child’s date of birth. When this information has been entered, click the submit button. The panel will return their user ID if one was found.

For those who do not have an account, visit https://campus.dekalb.k12.ga.us/campus/portal/dekalb.jsp and click on DCSD portal account activation. They will be prompted to enter the child’s seven-digit school district student number, the child’s nine-digit Social Security number and the child’s date of birth. When this information has been entered, click the submit button.

For those successful in retrieving the activation code, click Activate Your Parent Portal Account Now to create a username and password. Do not use a numeric only username as it may conflict with a student account.

If unsuccessful in retrieving an activation code on the first try and a parent has more than one child in the district, attempt to retrieve the activation code by entering the requested information for all children in the household. If still unsuccessful, contact the child’s school and be prepared to visit the school with picture identification to receive the activation code.

Once logged into the portal, if a parent does not see all of his or her children, visit the main webpage at www.dekalb.k12.ga.us and complete the form titled Combine Student Request Form. All students are automatically issued their own campus portal account within 24 hours of enrolling into the school district. Students should check with their school for additional information.

To enhance convenience and access student information on-the-go, a mobile app is also available. Visit www.dekalb.k12.ga.us, and within the stay connected section, click on the download from the App Store or download from Google play to download the district’s mobile app. Within the app, click on the infinite campus parent portal link to download the mobile app. When prompted for the district’s code, enter FLZLHV. The campus portal incorporates the highest level of security. Parents or guardians can see only information related to the students they are authorized to view. The use of strong passwords and session timeouts ensure secure access. A campus portal support line is available Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. by calling (678) 676-1131.
