Infinite Campus Parent Accounts

This year, Franklin Towne Charter Schools will continue using Infinite Campus as our online gradebook and student information system. We strongly encourage all parents to sign up for an account. Parent accounts give you instant access to grades, attendance, and disciplinary information for your child, as well as the ability to update contact information as it may change throughout the year.

Directions on creating a parent account or accessing a previous account was sent home with students on Tuesday September 9th.
