McAuliffe Manual and Denver Public Schools offer multiple ways to stay in touch with your student’s information and school experience, including a mobile app, weekly e-newsletter, school website, parent portals, and your student’s work binder.
MMMS Mobile App
Our mobile app is available for free for iOS and Android devices. A convenient way to stay in touch with school news, calendar, contacts, alerts and more.
We will email a weekly digital newsletter every Thursday to our families in order to share news about recent activities, upcoming events, ways to support the school, and more. You can access the newsletter archives here.
DPS Parent Portal (Infinite Campus)
On the portal, you can access current and confidential information about your child’s school attendance, grades, district and state test scores, and more. The Parent Portal is available in English, Spanish and many other languages.
To create a new account or to log into your existing Parent Portal account, please go to myportal.dpsk12.org.
This portal displays a summary of the student’s behaviors (merits/demerits), paycheck, and bank balances. You can learn more about the scholar dollar system here. To create or access your account, visit www.kickboardforschools.com. Click the login link at the top of the navigation menu and choose parent. On the next screen, you will need a code from the front office to set up your account for the first time.
Students keep their work in organized binders to help them stay current in their class work. Binders and student planners are checked on a regular basis by the student’s advisor. If you would like to ask your student more about their school work or a particular class, please invite them to share these with you.
Google Apps for Education
Google Apps for Education includes a district email account for each student, online file storage, the tools to create documents and presentations, plus the ability to collaborate on these documents with other students and teachers. This education-focused version of Google Apps does omits ads and the district filters use of bad language. Incoming students are taught how to log in at googlemail.dpsk12.net. Their account/username is their (six-digit) student ID@dpsk12.net. All middle and high school students are required by DPS to log into their Student Portal account first to change their password from the default; this automatically resets their Google password as well. This step is needed in order to access Google Apps from any mobile device such as an iPad. The district recommends using the Chrome browser for use with Google Apps for Education.
