Two Ways to Get Access

Accessing Silent Dismissal for the school may be accomplished in two different ways.

Web

If your school has purchased Parent Web Access or has purchased Extended Care Management and your student has been assigned a license by the school, then you may access Silent Dismissal using a browser on any device, including phones, tablets, or computers.

Instructions for creating a parent web account

You will need to access the web address for your specific school. The web URL will be something like <your school>.sdcs<a number>.com.

An example may be something like this fictitious school: southdetroit.sdcs999.com

Limited Availability

The Silent Dismissal Parent Web is not available at all schools. An additional fee is charged to schools to allow parent access via the web interface. If you do not see a link on the sign in page to create a parent account or if you a see a message indicating that parent access is not provided you will not be able to manage your students' account via the web. Mobile app access may still be available. Please check with your school.

<color darkred>There are some known problems with the app on some school servers. We are working as quickly as possible to update all individual school servers and hope to have this completed by Labor Day weekend.</color>

<color darkgreen>If the app requests that you purchase All Access again for the current school year, please do not purchase the app again. The server updates will correct this problem</color>

The mobile app is available at no cost for any parent to download from either the Google Play store or the Apple App store. The majority of the features in the app require an in-app purchase to use. They also require that the school allows the various features to be used.

Check with your school regarding usage before spending money to enable the All Access features
