It is extremely important for all students and parents to create and utilize a Student and Parent Portal account. This account will provide you with the ability to track student absences, attendance, course history, discipline issues, demographic, health and immunization data and current grades for your student. You can also choose to receive automatic email notification of unexcused absences, tardies or discipline issues. Access to current student grades will be through the Student or Parent Portal account. Chico Unified School District secondary student  progress reports and report cards are online only.

If you or your student already has a Portal account, please ensure you still have access to your existing Portal account. To create a new Portal account, click ‘Parent/Student Aeries’ button at the top right of the main page of our website, then click ‘Create New Account’ in the drop-down box. Follow the prompts.

You will need:

  • Verification Passcode. Please call our office at 891-3000 for the code.
  • Your Student’s permanent ID
  • Your home telephone number
