Campus Portal FAQ
New Campus Parent Update starting April 15th, 2019.
ISD 728 provides Campus Parent Portal to parents of students attending our schools. Infinite Campus has been busy updating Campus Portal with an easy-to-use design so you can better understand, monitor, and participate in the educational process with real-time access to announcements, assignments, attendance, grades, schedules and more. Campus Portal is now called Campus Student (for students) and Campus Parent (for parents, providing a seamless experience when switching between the web and matching app across your devices. To learn more about using the new portal, view the guide available here.
Usernames are now based on Email Address to better match Schoology, RevTrak and PayPams systems. Your other accounts were not changed, though later this summer Schoology will also be updated to match your new Campus username and affected parents will receive a separate email at that time
What Email Address will be used?
Going forward, changing your primary email address on file with ISD 728 will also change your Infinite Campus Parent username and Account Security Email to match. If you prefer your secondary email address on file to be used as your Campus Parent username, sign into Portal and use the More > Family Information tool Update button to switch them around (approval may take a few days). If you are also an employee of ISD 728 (including coaches), your primary email address must remain the school issued first.lastdue to how Campus integrates with employee records. Employees can update or add personal email address in the Secondary Email Address area, which will be used for the Campus Parent username.
What if I want to change my password? Or forgot it?
Password resets will be now be available using the Forgot Password link without needing to contact support. Schoology, RevTrak, PayPams and other systems usernames and passwords will still be changed separately at each system at this time - so changing your password for one does NOT change your password for all accounts.
Why is the happening now?
ISD 728 uses Infinite Campus to provide information via. Campus Portal. Infinite Campus is migrating all customers to a new Portal this school year and will discontinue the older portal and app this summer. Usernames are being changed (to emails) at the same time to better match Schoology, RevTrak, PayPams and other parent systems used by ISD 728, simplifying account logins for parents. Using email as usernames allow self-service password resets anytime, anywhere, and prepares other apps for better integration between parent apps like Schoology.

When should I use Campus Parent vs Schoology Parent Access?
Schoology provides a more detailed access to classroom activities, assignments and testing data. Schoology is the location where classroom teachers post some of their day-to-day work as well as course announcements for students.
