Keeping James K. Polk Elementary School families connected with their children’s school and the division is of our utmost importance. The families section of our website will help guide you through the enrollment process and familiarize you with the educational resources ACPS employs to enhance the learning process in keeping with our 2025 Strategic Plan: Equity for All. Powerschool provides families with children in grades K-12 access to their children’s report cards, attendance and other important academic information online. Canvas is the learning management system ACPS uses for all students, parents and employees. This section also highlights emergency information access as well as nutrition and our school cafeteria menus.
Ways families can stay engaged with their children’s school are also highlighted here, from how to become a member of the PTA to taking advantage of volunteer opportunities. The basics of how to sign up for school newsletters as well as our division-wide ACPS Express can also be found in the families section. This information aims to empower each ACPS family to play a part in their children’s educational success.
