This new portal for parents, students, and staff is a major upgrade to the Parent Portal. Student 360 consists of two pieces – a touch-enabled browser app and a phone app – that provide a fresh updated experience.

To download the Tyler SIS Student 360 phone app, parents and students  can go to the Apple iTunes or Google Play store.  The first time the app is run, users will need to select our school district.

School Dismissal Procedures

When it is necessary to cancel school (or dismiss early), the district will use our telephone broadcast service - SchoolReach Instant Parent Contact - to notify you of the cancellation. This system allows us to call up to four phone numbers (home and cell phones) per family.

Also, you can tune into any one of the following radio/television stations:








School cancellations are made prior to the start of morning bus routes at 6:00 am whenever possible.

If you wish to update your contact numbers, please contact your child's school building.


It All Counts

The Aurora R-VIII School District has launched our ItAllCounts program. ItAllCounts is an online shopping tool sponsored by national companies, such as Kohl's, Macy's, Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Office Max, allowing a percentage of proceeds to go to your child's school and a percentage into you own personal account. This program will help the students without time or burden while earning you money for participating – just by creating an account and doing online shopping through ItAllCounts. For example, one would go to ItAllCounts for a Christmas toy they were going to buy from Target or Walmart instead of going directly to that company's website. You would purchase the same product at the same price but a percentage would go to your child's school.

When you plan to shop online, please start with your ItAllCounts.com web page. Please watch the three minute “How It Works” video on any of the building's webpages:






The video is also found in “Help” under FAQ #1.

Your privacy is respected. No one in the district will know where you shop or what you buy. Your ItAllCounts summary page and earnings are for your eyes only unless you choose to share them with someone. Friends, grandparents, cousins, and co-workers can all help contribute and receive by simply using our landing page when shopping online. Please forward this link to those that you know shop online.
