Parent Reports and Portal

Lightspeed Parent Reports are available to SKSD parents and guardians interested in knowing more about their child’s activity on an SKSD device. Parents can opt-in via Skyward to receive reports of their child's internet usage over the last 7 days. Our internet content filtering service, Lightspeed, provides a summary that recaps when the web is being used, top sites visited, and more. This allows parents to see their child’s school and home internet activity for the past seven days and helps ensure they are safe and focused on learning.

What is the Parent Report Email?

Parents who have opted-in via Skyward will receive a Parent Report email (on Sunday mornings) sharing statistics about their child’s browsing activity for the previous 7 days while using an SK-issued Chromebook.  Due to a limitation between Skyward and Lightspeed, only the primary household for the student will be able to opt-in to receive the reports. Below is a sample of the email report delivered to parents.

What is the Parent Portal?

The Parent Report email contains an invitation to Log In or Register for the Parent Portal. Click the button at the end of the Parent Report email to create an account. Creating an account for the Parent Portal provides web activity insights, including visited websites.

Create an Account

After clicking the Log In or Register button in the Parent Report email, select Create Account. Fill out the information and click Create your account. A verification email will be sent to the email address you provided. Click the verification link in the email to complete your registration.

What does the Parent Portal Dashboard look like?

The dashboard summarizes the child’s most recent browsing activity over the last 7 days, including times the sites were accessed. Click the date headers (Today, Yesterday, etc.) to expand that day’s viewing history.

Parents and guardians with multiple children can select the child whose report information they would like to view within the Parent Portal.

Useful features within the Parent Portal Dashboard

How can I support my child with device use?

SKSD makes every effort to equip families with tools and information to ensure the safe use of SK-issued devices in the home. Filtering services provided in our schools - in compliance with minimum federal regulations for the protection of students - are extended to Chromebooks when they are used away from school.  In addition to filtering services and tools like the Parent Report and Parent Portal, parent/guardian involvement is key for keeping students safe online.
