Parent Portal/Family Access

PVASD uses Skyward to provide family access to:
  • Student schedules
  • Update emergency contact information
  • View teacher information
  • View food service information, such as balances and purchases
  • View academic history such as previous grades, report cards, etc
  • View transportation information such as bus stops and assigned buses
  • Update contact information such as phone and email address 

The district will continue to roll out new features over the next few months. For instance, we are working to digitize our paper forms so you will no longer have to fill out paper copies. 


Online food service payments are now available via e-Funds for Schools. Credit card transactions will still be a $2.50 fee, but we are able to offer payments from a checking account at a lower fee of $1.25. In the meantime, feel free to send in a check to fund your child(s) lunch account.


To view videos and tutorials about our new SIS, feel free to visit the Skyward page on our technology section. It can be viewed by going to this URL: https://www.pennsvalley.org/apps/pages/skyward


The Skyward Mobile App is also available in the App Store for Apple & Android users. After installing the app, you can search for Penns Valley Area School District and then login with your username/password. 


We are asking that you log into Family Access and go through the “emergency contact update” form for each student. You must do this for EACH student, as this system records emergency contacts by student rather than family. This will allow you to have separate emergency contacts for each of your students if that works best for you. 


Again, we are excited to present you with Skyward Family Access and look forward to providing you with useful information.
