Infinite Campus Access:

In order to set up your Infinite Campus parent portal please click on the link below. You will need your personal activation key code. It is a series of letters and numbers that are assigned to each student and parent/guardian upon enrollment.

Once you have set up your account, you can select the menu button at the top left of the screen next to the Infinite Campus logo, then select More. From there you will see a list of options. At the beginning of each year, it is important to complete the Annual Information Update. That will allow you to change emails, phone numbers, emergency contacts and other information that is important for us to have in order to communicate with you. You may also make changes throughout the year by selecting Address Information, Demographics or Family Information.

If you have any other questions, do not know your activation code or if you have already set up your Infinite Campus account and do not remember your login information, please email bobbie.mccleery@swcsd.us and Ms. McCleery will get that information to you as quickly as possible.

Infinite Campus (IC) is the District’s Internet-based student information system. Important features of IC are the Parent Portal and NEW Mobile App. Through the IC tools parents are able to access their child’s information, such as class schedules, attendance, academic reports, transportation information, coursework, and put funds in their child’s food service account online. Parents can also designate how and where they wish to receive emergency communications, attendance calls, general announcement messages, and e-mail messages from teachers, the school, and the school district.
