We will contact you within 3 business days. 

Student IDs can be obtained for grades 6-12 from the CRT at your child's building.

I have children at different schools. Will I need a user name and password for each child?

No, under most circumstances, one user name and password will provide you with access to information for all your children. If you do not see all your children once you log in to Family Access, contact Family Access at FamilyAccess@wlcsd.org or 248-956-2190.

Do I have to apply for a new user name and password every school year?

No, once you receive your initial user name and password, it stays with your family until your youngest student graduates from high school or is no longer enrolled in Walled Lake Schools.

How do I change my password?

To change your password in Family/Student Access, you need to log in to Family/Student Access. Once you are at the main display for Family/Student Access, please click the button in the upper right hand corner of the display that says Account Info. This button will show you all of your account information and how to change your password. You will be required to provide your current password when changing to a new password.

How secure is my child's information?

Family/Student Access is user name and password protected.  For this reason we ask that you not share your user name and password. In addition, Walled Lake Consolidated Schools has implemented strong encryption technology (SSL) that protects all data transmitted between your web browser and our web server. All student data is stored behind a secure firewall.

Is there a difference between a parent and student user name and password?

Yes, parents will see some different information that students won’t see and vice versa. Please be sure to use your own log in for Family Access so you have access to the parent tools that are available.  We advise you not to share the parent user name and password with students.

How do I contact someone with questions about my user name or password?

Any questions, comments, or concerns regarding Family/Student Access or your password should be directed via email to FamilyAccess@wlcsd.org or the hotline at 248-956-2190.  Please leave your name, the name of each child in the district, your email address and a daytime phone number to contact you. You will be contacted within 3 business days.

Who do I contact if I have forgotten my password?

Who do I contact to correct my child's demographic information?

Family/Student Access provides real-time information. Since teachers input grades over a period of time, not all grades will show up at the same time.
