Submitted 11/7/2016 by LISD Skyward Support

ePortfolios are a valuable LISD district initiative the supports student growth and reflection. Students in grades 4-12 will be providing the address for their portfolio in a form available to them through their Skyward Student Access. Students who completed the form last year will see the URL field already completed. students will simply mark the form completed this year after verifying the link to be accurate. The link will be shared with parents and LISD staff so they can access and view the work they store there. Instructions for Students and Parents are described below:


1. Login to the web version of Skyward student access. ( >> Skyward link at top of page >> Skyward Family Access login >> Your network username and password.) This feature is currently not available for the Mobile App.

2. Select the link to the form from the announcement on the wall or by selecting Online Forms >> LISD ePortfolio from the left menu.

NOTE: if you completed the form last year, the URL field should already be filled in. check the link to make sure it is accurate.

3. Review the instructions and select the link to the right for STEP #1. The form will display on this page.
