Family/Student Portal (Aspen SIS)
In January 2018, the Newton Public Schools began the transition to a new student information system (SIS). Skyward, the previous SIS, will be phased out over the next several months. The new SIS is called Aspen, a secure student information management system with a family and student portal.
The district will use Aspen to manage student information, including grading, scheduling, attendance, and more. To log into the family/student portal, please click the button below.
Parents of students in grades K-12 will log into Aspen to view address and contact information, attendance, progress reports and report cards. Students in grades 6-12 will use Aspen to view address and contact information, their attendance, progress reports, and report cards. Students in grades 8-11 will also use Aspen to enter their course selections for the upcoming school year.
