Sign Up for ParentVUE/Synergy

ParentVUE/Synergy is a valuable way for teachers to communicate with the parent community. Students can be more successful if parents and caregivers are informed and in the loop. Synergy will allow a parent to use a single login to follow their student the entire time the student is enrolled in San Francisco schools; from the beginning of kindergarten through the end of high school. If parents already used ParentVUE for their SFUSD student in elementary school, they will use the same log in and password at A.P. Giannini.

Synergy is updated at varying rates. Teachers are expected to update regularly, but scores may not be changing each day.
