TXConnect becomes Ascender Parent Portal

graphic for ascender parent portal


As of Monday, October 28th 2019, TxConnect will change to Ascender Parent Portal.  TxConnect is the software application that you use to check your students grades, attendance, etc.  You will NOT need to create a new username and password, as you will be able to use your previous login credentials.  If you have any questions please contact your student's campus for assistance. 

This change is being driven by TXEIS, who is moving to the Ascender platform. The platform interface looks different from the old one, but the new platform is much more robust and will provide more & improved information for our families.
