Schooltool Student Portal Frequently Asked Questions

Student Portal Information

The Oneida City School District uses Schooltool as its Student Data Management System. A component of this system is a secure, web-based portal for accessing student’s grades, attendance and other information. The District has long provided parents and legal guardians of students in grades 4-12 access to information in Schooltool through the Parent Portal as a way of encouraging participation in a child’s education and improving communication between students, parents/guardians, and District Staff. Now, students in grades 6-12 will have access to the same information with their own usernames and passwords.


Is Student Portal the same thing as Parent Portal?

Yes. The platform is the same.


How do I sign up?

All students will be registered automatically for student portal. Any parent that does not want their student to have access to student portal will need to fill out the form and return it to the secretary in the main office. The main office will then notify the IT department.

  • Do not share your password with anyone.
  • Talk to a guidance counselor or teacher if someone else, other than your parents, has your password.

  • Keep a passcode on your phone. 

I signed the form to have my student blocked from Student Portal, but have since changed my mind. How do I sign back up?
