Aspen X2 Family Portal
Introducing the Aspen Family Portal

New May 15, 2020

The Aspen Family/Student Portal supports the goals of the Easton Public Schools to engage students and their families and provide opportunities for communication. Providing timely information for parents, guardians and students about student performance serves the school system’s Strategic Plan priorities of maximizing individual student achievement and enhanced relationships within our community.

Family Portal FAQs 


What is the Family Portal?

For each student, Aspen stores thousands of pieces of data, which only their teachers and school administrators have access to.  The Family Portal is a part of Aspen that lets parents and legal guardians see certain information about their own children in one place. 

An Aspen (X2) family portal account allows you to follow your student(s) progress. This account is for parent/legal guardian use only and will allow you to view all family members in multiple schools with just ONE account/login.

Is my child's information secure?

Aspen protects your student's information with the same advanced technology your bank uses to protect your financial accounts.  The Family and Student Portals have been carefully configured to ensure that your student's information is confidential and can only be retrieved by you - the parent/guardian, authorized school personnel, and the student themselves.

How is the Family Portal different from my child's Student Portal?

If you have students at Easton Middle School or Oliver Ames High School, they have their own student account which you have been sharing.  It lets them see information about themselves.  With the Family Portal, as a parent/guardian, you now have your own login and can see all family members, regardless of school, on one account.

How do I access my portal account?

NOTE: The first time you log in you must be on a computer/laptop. Once you’ve set up the account you can log in on a phone or tablet.

As a parent/guardian, you only need one login to securely access the information for all of your children.

  • Click the Aspen icon below to access the Easton Aspen login page
    This link is specific to our district and should always be used to access the portal. You can use the Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer browser, but pop-up blockers must be turned off.
  • Enter your unique Login ID and Password provided to you
    The first time you log in, you will be prompted to choose and answer a security question for future password recovery.  Usernames and passwords are case-sensitive.  Usernames are always lowercase and have the following format:  first initial/last name (jsmith).  If more than one user has the same first initial and last name, your account may have been created with a slightely different login like jmsmith, jsmith1, jsmith2, etc.
  • Pay close attention to the Primary Email Address listed in this window
    This is the email address communication will be sent to you, including password recovery and/or direct communication from teachers or school/district Administrators. We highly recommend using a Gmail account, as this is compatible with our systems. Some email programs (Yahoo, Outlook, Verizon, msn, aol) have filters in place that restrict or block messages from systems such as this.

How do I change my email address or password?

Click Set Preferences in the upper-right corner of the screen.  Click the Security tab and update your email or password.  If you update your email address, it is automatically updated in Aspen.  You do not have to contact your school secretary to have it updated for your children.

What if I forgot my password?

Click on "I forgot my password" on the Aspen log in screen and a new one will be sent to you. If you did not answer the security question when you activated your account, you will not be able to use this feature and you will have to call the main office of your child's school for assistance.

How to I access my child's IEP?

Click here for instructions on reading IEP's in the portal.

What if I cannot download/open a PDF file for a Report Card or IEP Progress Report?

 If you are unable to open PDFs then it is likely because you do not have any software installed that can open them. 
 
Chrome has a built in PDF reader, but if you are using a different browser, you can download Adobe Reader to view PDF files: https://acrobat.adobe.com/us/en/acrobat/pdf-reader.html
