Security. Although every effort is made to secure network communications, SUSD cannot insure the privacy of on-line communications.

Using Information from SUSD; PowerSchool Parent Portal:

PowerSchool Parent Portal. SUSD is pleased to offer you student information via a web-based version of each student’s grades/records called PowerSchool Parent Portal”.

Security and Confidentiality. SUSD affords the same degree of confidentiality to student information stored on PowerSchool Parent Portal as is given to student records stored by SUSD in any other medium. We are committed to protecting the confidentiality of student information. Firewalls, passwords, encryption, and audit trails are further used to safeguard each student’s information. We identify the records released and note the time and date of electronic access to them each time the student, parent, or guardian accesses PowerSchool Parent Portal. We have taken steps to make all information received from on-line visitors as secure as possible against unauthorized access and use.

SSL. All personal information submitted to or gathered by the Site through on-line forms is handled through a secure server using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. This information is encrypted while it is transferred over the Internet.

Our SSL web server uses authentication. For other than general information viewing, PowerSchool Parent Portal must be accessed with an SSL-compatible browser or terminal.

You can tell when you are secure by looking at the location (URL) field. If the URL begins with https:// (instead of http://), the document comes from a secure server. This means each student’s data cannot be read or deciphered by unauthorized individuals.

Passwords. Usernames and passwords provide two layers of authentication and are stored in an encrypted database that is isolated from the Internet. As a PowerSchool Parent Portal user, your role in maintaining the security of the student’s information is: 1) keeping your login ID and password confidential; and 2) keeping the information you view and/or download confidential.

Confidentiality. All information on PowerSchool Parent Portal is strictly confidential. Its disclosure to unauthorized individuals is prohibited. If you receive a student’s information or someone else’s email in error, immediately destroy it and notify SUSD by email at or by telephone number at (520) 545-4537.

PowerSchool Parent Portal Account Protection:

Your password is the key to your child’s student records. Do not disclose your SUSD password to anyone. If you share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you alone are responsible for all actions taken in the name of the student account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and/or the student’s personal information, and you may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify SUSD to obtain a new password.

Downloading. Except as provided herein you may read and download information at this Site without identifying yourself or providing any personal information. However, please be aware that you may have to identify yourself and/or provide personal information by logging on to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Any personal information that you provide to us through email messages, surveys, or forms will only be used to respond properly to your request.

Except as required by law and described herein, SUSD does not share, disclose, or sell email addresses or phone numbers to other organizations.

Response to electronic communication. SUSD will make its best effort to provide a timely response to electronic inquiries. In some cases, the teachers and/or other personnel responding to an email inquiry or other communication may not be immediately available to do so. Please allow at least three (3) business days for a response.
