What is the Genesis Parent portal?

Genisis is a student information system (SIS) used widely throughout New Jersey and elsewhere. While you won’t need it for your newborn, you may encounter it for your school-bound kids.

Each parent access account will allow a mom, dad, or guardian to review their child’s admission, enrollment, school schedule, grades, and more. To get a Genesis parent access account, each school district asks parents to set up a password protected account that will allow parents to stay connected to the school for any planned and unplanned communication needs. Genesis is mainly used in public schools.

Is the Parent Portal Genesis any good?

Before password protected online systems, it was hard for a parent to get a request to the teacher or principal of their child without having to come into the school to address the concern. Now, students, parents, and teachers can take just one moment away from their busy day to plug in a password in the Genesis link for the school and be in almost instant contact. While it does have a learning curve, from both the parent and teacher side, it is easy to set up a parent access account and simple to reset the password, if needed.

How do I set up a Parents Genesis account?

Usually, the request to initiate an account for parent access comes from the school district that serves your address. If your child is going to a new school, you may want to talk to the administrators directly about any new forms or any website links that you need to know to become registered in the new system.

What is the Parent access link to open the parent portal?

While you could Google “parent access account” and find any number of Genesis access links, here are some of the most common parent access log-on sites. Ask your school district for the link to access.

What if I get an error when I try to log on?

If you receive an error while trying to access a Genesis parent portal, maybe you’re trying to log into the students portal by mistake. Check the log in link to be sure. Also, double-check your password – you may need to reset it to recover access to the password protected site.

Some of these sites check your IP address and they block computers logging on from places outside the United States or far from the primary zipcodes of the address where the schools are located. If you are traveling internationally and receive a following error, you may need to use a VPN to gain access to your children’s student information system.
