This school year, ACS proudly implemented a fantastic school management program which allows parents direct access to their student's grades, homework, teacher newsletters, and many more important resources like school calendars, upcoming events, and lunch menus. ParentsWeb is aimed at keeping you, the parent, involved in the classroom when you can't be here by allowing you to email the teacher and refer to documents that were distributed to the class. You can also set preferences of when you would like to receive updated grade reports emailed directly to you or update emergency contacts, phone numbers, and email addresses.
For added convenience, we are also working towards on-line tuition payment and on-line lunch orders, so stay tuned as these options roll out in school.
Should you have any questions regarding ParentsWeb, please don't hesitate to contact the school office and we'll be happy to help you.

Announcing August 8th Release of
Mobile Access to ParentsWeb!
RenWeb is pleased to announce that beginning Wednesday, August 8, parents and students will have two new ways to access ParentsWeb from their mobile devices - ParentsWeb Mobile and the RenWeb Home App!
ParentsWeb Mobile provides free browser-based access to ParentsWeb information from any mobile device, including an iPod, iPhone, Android Phone, iPad or Android Tablet.
ParentsWeb Mobile allows parents and students to access Homework Assignments, Daily Grades, Lesson Plans, Calendar Events, Announcements, School Directory Listings, Report Cards, Attendance, Behavior Events and Class Schedules. Future enhancements include Family Account Balances, Pay Now, Lunch Menus, Lunch Ordering, Newsletters, Resource Documents and Medical information.
The RenWeb Home App accesses the same information as ParentsWeb Mobile, while providing the additional conveniences of an App for an annual subscription of $4.99 per household.
With the RenWeb Home App, parents and students will:
Always stay logged into ParentsWeb, providing instant access.
Navigate to their information faster
Import school calendar events and student homework assignments into Personal Calendars
Communicate easier with other school parents and faculty through their Smartphone's integration with the School Directory, allowing parents to Tap & Send emails or make phone calls instantly to directory listings.
Parent Communication Document
RenWeb has prepared a one-page communication document for schools to share with their parents and students that describes ParentsWeb Mobile and the RenWeb Home App. It can be accessed here or by navigating from the RenWeb Main Menu to Report Manager > Training and Documentation > ParentsWeb Mobile: Parent Communication and click Print.
To provide schools further information, we have created a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that also can be accessed in Training and Documentation as well under ParentsWeb Mobile: FAQs.
RenWeb is also placing an announcement on the ParentsWeb Login page that informs parents of the release of ParentsWeb Mobile and the RenWeb Home App. It also provides parents instructions on how to access the two mobile-friendly options.
Access Instructions for ParentsWeb Mobile
To access ParentsWeb Mobile, parents simply use their mobile device to navigate to their normal ParentsWeb Login Page and they will be redirected to the ParentsWeb Mobile login page.
Access Instructions for the RenWeb Home App
The RenWeb Home App is available now in the Apple App Store for an annual subscription of $4.99 per year. Parents should use their iPod, iPhone or iPad to search the App Store for RenWeb Home.
RenWeb Home is offered by the App Store as an In-App Subscription. That means a parent or student installs the App for free, and then purchases an annual subscription to the App the first time they access it. That single annual subscription then covers every iPod, iPhone or iPad used by every member of the family as recorded in RenWeb.
There is nothing the school needs to do to manage the subscriptions. It is managed automatically through the integration that exists between RenWeb and the App Store.
Faculty Members Have Free Access to RenWeb Home
As a special benefit, RenWeb has made arrangements with the App store to provide RenWeb Home for free to school staff members with students in the schools they serve. That means staff members can install the RenWeb Home App and access it for free without paying an annual subscription fee.
Please note that if a staff member is asked to pay for a subscription upon their initial login to RenWeb Home, it likely means the staff member has multiple records in their school's RenWeb database - one as a faculty member and one as a parent. If this occurs, the staff member should not install the app, but instead ask the school to merge their parent record into their staff record and then attempt to log into the app again for free.
Android Version of RenWeb Home
An Android version of the RenWeb Home will be released in the Android Market later this Fall. For now, parents on Android devices should use ParentsWeb Mobile.
We hope you enjoy these great new additions to the suite of products and services RenWeb provides.
