Daymap Parent Portal Quick Start Guide


 

Daymap Connect is an extension of the Daymap Learning Management System which provides parents with access to key school and student information, both at home and on the go. Our easy-to-use system allows parents to create and manage their own accounts for Daymap Connect; requiring one login and password per parent (with the option to provide multiple logins) to access details for all students enrolled in the school.

The screen above is the Daymap Connect log in screen. This can be found by using the following URL: http://daymap.shc.vic.edu.au/DaymapConnect. Please note this URL will also work on the Daymap app, which can be downloaded from Apple iTunes or Google Play Store.

If you are a new user, then select the “New User?” option. You will then be required to enter your email address (this must be the email registered at the school) and a student code (this will be provided by your school). Once you have entered the details select ‘Reset Password’ and a username and password will be sent instantly to your email account (see below).

The Home tab

This is the main page of the Parent Portal. The Parent Portal is navigated via vertical tabs along the left-hand side.

If you have more than one child enrolled at the school, their names will be available on the drop down box in the top left corner. Select the appropriate student to see their information.

The left-hand section is the Student Activity Feed of recent activity for the selected student. You will view:

  • Student Notes;
  • Student Diary Notes;
  • Student Records;

  • Daymap Reports published to the Parent

On the right of the screen is a list of recent messages sent.
