SIS Parent Accounts
As part of the Woodson Pyramid, Fairfax Villa is participating in a pilot program that is providing parent accounts for our FCPS Student Information System (SIS). Each parent will receive a letter in the mail providing a web address, activation key and directions for registering for your account. These letters should arrive by the middle of November. You do not have to come to the school to set up this account.
As another form of communication between parents and Fairfax Villa, this account will enable you to view your student's attendance, report card grades and other information. Click here to view a video about setting up your account and what you will see through the Parent SIS account. Please be aware that there are aspects in the video of what is shown for middle and high school students that are not in the elementary school view.
