Genesis Parent Portal

The Orange School District supports access by parents/guardians, teachers, and administrators to informational resources that will improve participation in a child's education and improve communication between students, parents/guardians and the student's teachers.

The Orange School District manages student information electronically and will make the student education records available for viewing only to authorized parents/guardians and students with a secure connection over the Internet. All parents/guardians and students will comply with the Internet use regulations and all technology regulations/procedures, as well as all other District policies that may apply.

Only after a family has enrolled their child(ren) in the Orange School System will a parent/guardian be authorized to access the web account. Once a student withdraws or graduates from the Orange District their access will be inactivated. Parents/guardians, students, and staff must understand and practice proper and ethical use.
