Your Woodland Public Schools look forward to an amazing new school year ahead and can’t wait to see our students! As we prepare to welcome back our students to the classrooms, we're thrilled to remind you of two powerful tools that can help make your back-to-school experience smoother than ever.
Family Access is a comprehensive software package designed to provide families with all the essential information they need about their child's education journey. With just a few clicks, families can access vital details such as class schedules, teacher assignments, and much more, all in one convenient online platform.
Family Access can be accessed from both a browser-based web version as well as a mobile app available for Android and iOS devices.
Here's what you can expect from Family Access:
- Personalized Information: Stay up-to-date with your child's specific class schedule, subjects, and any changes that may occur throughout the year.
- Student Progress Tracking: Stay informed about your child's academic progress and achievements, making it easier to provide the necessary support and encouragement at home.
- Food Services: Families can track purchases and student meal balances.

TalkingPoints is Woodland Public Schools’ communication suite which allows two-way communication between families, teachers, and administrators. While Talking Points will text families directly, the mobile application for Android and iOS devices enables a variety of more robust features including:
- Secure Communication: Engage in direct communication with teachers and school administrators through secure messaging channels, promoting open dialogue and collaboration.
- Teacher Insights: Get to know your child's educators better by accessing their profiles, teaching philosophies, and communication channels. This will help foster a strong parent-teacher partnership that benefits your child's learning experience.
- Important Announcements: Receive timely notifications about school events, parent-teacher conferences, extracurricular activities, and other important announcements, ensuring you never miss a beat.
- Resource Sharing: Access digital resources, recommended reading lists, and educational materials that can complement your child's studies and contribute to their overall growth.

By utilizing Family Access and Talking Points, families will have the tools they need to actively participate in their child's educational journey and create a positive impact on their learning outcomes.
