Technology at the Queensbury school district is supported by three specialty areas that all work together to ensure the needs of staff and students are being met.
It’s fast and easy to stay engaged in your child’s education with the Queensbury Union Free School District app for use on smart phones, tablets and e-readers. The app provides access to news, calendar, Parent Portal and more. Anyone can download the free app from the Google Play Store for Android devices or the App Store for iOS/Apple.
The SchoolTool Parent Portal mobile app allows parents/guardians to get assignments, grades and attendance information for all of their children instantly in one view. The SchoolTool mobile app can be download for Android and iOS/Apple.
Once the app is downloaded, enter the following URL: https://schooltool.queensburyschool.org/schooltoolweb. Your username and password is the same as the one used for the Parent Portal website.
To apply for an account, fill out the parent/guardian access request form (PDF). In order to protect the confidentiality of student records, all parents/guardians who want to use this service are required to fill out the application form and return it in person to any one of your student’s schools. For security purposes, a photo ID is required when you return the form. If you are unable to bring the form in, you may also choose to have the form notarized and sent to:
Parent Portal Registration
ATTN: Catherine Zubal
429 Aviation Road
Queensbury, NY 12804
Once the information is verified and processed, you will receive notification via email that your account has been created. You will also receive a temporary password; your user name is your email address. After receiving your password, you will be able to log in to SchoolTool.
Students are given access using their network log in information. Students who do not have a network account need to fill out and return the Student Access and Release form.
The department employs a “teacher on assignment” who provides classroom support and professional development for staff. By working with teachers to research, plan and co-teach technology-infused lessons, units and projects, technology is integrated directly into the curriculum.
Two computer technicians and a network coordinator provide timely and knowledgeable technical support for the more than 2,000 computers, laptops, Chromebooks, terminals, and wireless access points available throughout the district. This front-line troubleshooting, computer repair, network and server management is crucial to the success of students and staff.
Data and communication support
The accuracy and reliability of student data has become a critical element in the reporting requirements of a school district to New York State’s Education Department. The department has done an admirable job in meeting these requirements thanks to the efforts of the staff members who oversee all district systems including student information, financial, human resources, lunch service, transportation and health. Additionally, this staff also handles all data warehouse needs and website maintenance.
