Dear Long Beach High School and Middle School Families,

We have been working over the summer to transition our student management system from Power School to our new system, schooltool. All management systems have similar components; they house demographic, programmatic, and achievement information about our students. Using a management system such as schooltool allows us to streamline our communications to families, and makes sharing information about students more efficient and accurate within the school community. We decided to make the switch to schooltool after a tremendous amount of research about which system would be the most user-friendly and efficient for our district needs.

We are now ready to open the new Parent Portal in schooltool. Over the summer, we updated email addresses from nearly all of our families. Today, we are inviting you to use the attached instructions to log-in to schooltool to view your child’s schedule. This will be the same log-in information that you can use throughout the year to see your child’s report cards as well.

While we have made every effort to trouble-shoot any possible issues before they arise, any rollover of such a large amount of data is bound to have a glitch or two (or even twenty). If there are problems, we are ready to address them right away, but we need you to be our partners in this effort by notifying us immediately of any errors that you may notice, or any difficulties you may have in the registration and log-in process. The best way to let us know for now is to email us at We will have a team of people addressing the issues that are sent to us, and responding to the emails early next week. And of course, for this initial phase, we will be mailing hard copies of schedules as well. But, please, try your schooltool account today and let us know if you have any difficulties.

Thanks again for your cooperation. Enjoy these last few days of summer with your families!
