Parent Power-Up: Downloading the Mobile App


Welcome to another 60-Second Power-Up. Today I’d like to introduce you to the Skyward
mobile app, which gives you the freedom to take Skyward
with you wherever you go. To download the app, head to the App Store
or Google Play Store. Search for the word “Skyward.” Tap the Get or Install button. Then open the app by tapping Open or by tapping
on the Skyward app icon on your phone’s home screen. When the app opens, you’ll see three options
for locating your district: You can use your current location, search using your zip code, or type in the name of your district. The next screen will ask you to select a product. Select Student Management if you are a parent
or student using Family Access, or a school or district
employee looking to use our student information system
features. On the following screen, enter your Skyward
credentials and set up a four-digit passcode for logging in
on the app. Now that you’re in, here are a few general
navigation tips. If a screen has a guided tour available, you can view it by tapping the paper airplane
icon near the top of your screen. The three lines in the upper right will open
your main menu. Opening the main menu will reveal several
additional options: the star is your Favorites; the clock is recent places you’ve visited; the four lines are the System Menu, where you can navigate to the different areas
of the app; and the person is the user menu, with access to your account settings and preferences. To return to the home page at any time, tap on title of your current page, located
at the top center of your screen. It’s as easy as that! Check out the other 60-Second Power-Ups and
become even more Skyward-savvy.
