Account Activation Tutorial

parent/student access

 
Once you have received your Activation Code in a letter from your school, you are ready to begin the process of setting up your parent/student access. Letters will be distributed during the elementary registration process or by email for middle school and high school students.
Start by going to the Parent/Student Access Login:
https://intranet.cps.k12.in.us/rdsparentaccess/

You should bookmark this page for future visits. 

 

Existing Users:

If you are a parent and already have an existing RDS parent account, you do not need to create a new account for a newly enrolled child. Instead you can simply add that child to your existing account.

Log into your account and click on the “add a student” link near the top left of the screen.
 
 
Enter the Activation Code from your letter EXACTLY as it appears and click the “Activate” button. Repeat for any other activation codes you have received.

New Users:

On your first visit to the login page (https://intranet.cps.k12.in.us/rdsparentaccess/), find the “Activation Code” box near the center of the screen and type the Activation Code from your letter EXACTLY as it appears.

 
Once you click on the "Create Account" button, you will see the screen pictured below.
You will need to choose a unique User Name, of at least 8 characters, as well as an 8 character Password. Be sure to note when you use capital letters, as the case will need to be the same when you return to login next time.

Including a secret question and your email address will enable a function on the login screen labeled "Forgot your password?" Answering your question correctly here will allow your password to be emailed to your account.


As you complete this information, make a written note of the User Name and Password that you have created here.
Be sure to include capital or lowercase letters, as the login IS case sensitive.

 
Once you click the "Next" button, you should see a screen like the one below where the student's name is a link that will allow you to view that student’s information.

If you have Activation Codes for additional students, click on the “add a student” link near the top left of the screen.

Enter the Activation Code from your letter EXACTLY as it appears and click the “Activate” button. Repeat for any other activation codes you have received.
