Welcome to the ASCENDER Parent Portal which replaces txConnect (Online Grade Viewer) for viewing grades, attendance and immunization information. Please use your existing txConnect username and password to access the ASCENDER Parent Portal. After 4 unsuccessful login attempts, your account will be locked for 10 minutes. If you do not have a grade viewer account, contact your child's campus counselor for a Parent Portal ID. For a Parent Portal quick start guide and a detailed user guide, click the View/Download Documents blue button below in the REDWATER ISD Documents section.
You will notice some cosmetic differences in page formatting in ASCENDER as compared to txConnect. To view student grades, log in, and in the gray box on the left side of the screen, choose the drop down menu next to Grades, then choose Cycle and Semester Grades. To view individual assignments, click on the blue grade next to the course for this cycle (six weeks).
Parents, the email address associated with your account must be on file with the office to allow you to continue to utilize the email/text alert feature in Parent Portal. If you are not receiving alerts, please contact the school office and give them the email address associated with your Parent Portal account. Please check your student's account periodically. Occasionally, due to technical issues, the alerts you have set up do not send properly. They cannot be resent after they have failed.
