Every student, every day, preparing for the future.
Skylert Notification System
Derby Public Schools utilizes a Skylert notification system. Parents may change the way they receive notifications through their Skyward account by following these steps:

Skyward is now available to Families and Guardians on an individual basis. Parents will now see their personal contact information when logging in, and will have the ability to set their own contact preferences.  This ability is limited to their Skyward login -- other guardians will control their own information under their own credentials.

In addition, contact information is now being automatically uploaded for each guardian. Previously, the automatic sync only occurred for Family 1, Guardian 1 member. Parents are encouraged to check their contact preferences in Family Access prior to the school year, while using this module throughout the year to make personal contact information updates.

1. Log into Skyward.
2. On the left hand side, you will find “General Information” in red. 
3. Second item listed under General Information is Skylert.
4. Click on Skylert.
5. Click on edit. (located to the right of the student’s name)
6. Make changes and click save.The changes will need to be made for each student.

Please allow 24 hours for changes to be updated.
Family 1 group: The first person listed in the Family 1 group will be able to update all setting. The remaining person(s) in Family 1 group will be able to update the additional notification section only.
Family 2 group: The person(s) listed in the Family 2 group will not see the Skylert link in Skyward so they will not be able to make changes to Skylert and will not receive alerts. Their information is not uploaded to Skylert from Skyward. Therefore, if they would like to receive alerts, then they will have to have a member of Family 1 enter their information as an additional number.
