Santa Cruz City Schools

Thank you for partnering with us in education.


Parents NEW to the SCCS District:

If you are pre-registering and have an address outside of the district boundaries, please go to the District website's parent page or contact the SCCS District Office to discuss inter-district transfers. 

Parents with Currently Enrolled SCCS Students:

If you do not have an Illuminate login, please fill out the Google Form to request access by clicking the link below:

Parent Portal Access Request

THIS FORM IS FOR PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIANS OF STUDENTS CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN A SCCS SCHOOL. Please fill out and submit this form to request an authorization code to access the Illuminate Parent Portal. If you have more than one student in the district please fill out the form for only one; the current siblings and siblings enrolling for the upcoming school year will be automatically connected by the system.

Please note that your email address will be your username after your account is created.  If you have more than one student in the district, you will be able to toggle among them using the "family" icon at the top of the screen.

ALL Parents - Back to School Online Packets:

All back to school documents must be filled out online through the Parent Portal in order for your student(s) to be placed in classes.  The forms will be available in the portal near the end of the current school year.  If you require assistance, please contact your student's school.


If you are logged in to your Chromebook with your student Google account, simply click the "Google +" button to log in - no username/password required!
