Watervliet City School District Parent Portal

Welcome to the Watervliet City School District Parent Portal homepage.

Parents can access their child's school-related data through a mobile device using eSD mobile for parents:
https://esd-connect.neric.org/Mobile/Parent. This mobile parent portal allows access to schedules, grades, assignments, attendance and more through web-browser enabled devices, such as i-Pads, i-Phones, Droids, etc. To learn more, view this video: eSchoolData mobile tutorial

Once you become a registered user of the Parent Portal, you will have access to the profiles of all Watervliet students for which you are a registered parent/guardian. You will be able to view important dates and announcements for each student. You will also be provided with each student’s schedule, report card grades, progress reports and teacher’s grade books (WHS only).

Parent Portal information is currently available for parents of students attending grades K-12.
