The MyPolkSchools Parent Portal
The Parent Portal is a service offered to parents and guardians for accessing certain student records. The service allows parents and guardians to access information about ALL of their students through one convenient website. This eliminates the need to visit several different websites, make telephone calls or visit the school to access records and information.

Opportunities for Parents at Caldwell

The buses that are used for grade-level field trips are paid for by Caldwell PTA. The PTA helps with funding in areas that the county can not. All parents are encouraged to join PTA! We welcome parents and community members to serve on the PTA Board for planning and decision-making purposes. If you feel you can contribute to our school’s PTA, please stop by the front office and let us know!
SAC– Caldwell’s School Advisory Council provides outstanding leadership and vision to our school. Our SAC is comprised of administrators and a team of individuals representing parents, teachers, support staff, and business and community leaders.
