Student Information System (SIS) Parent Accounts
Parents of Lanier students should have received a letter in late April 2015 containing information about their Student Information System (SIS) Parent Account. SIS Parent Accounts are an online tool providing parents the ability to access and view their child’s student information, including attendance, discipline and health records, report cards and more. The letter provided parents with directions on how to register. If you misplaced your letter, never received one, are a new Lanier parent, or your activation key expired, please bring your government-issued photo ID and visit the main office at 703-934-2400 for assistance.
For more information, check out the SIS Set-Up Video as well as Fairfax County Public Schools' resource page. If you already have an account, you can find the login page at https://sisparent.fcps.edu/
