Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Redwater ISD BUILDINGS WILL BE CLOSED through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year,
with the Governor also stating closed through the “unforeseeable future”.
All school activities and events will continue to be suspended/cancelled during the duration of building closures.
New Grade Viewer Website
Redwater ISD is pleased to announce the release of the ASCENDER Parent Portal which replaces txConnect (Online Grade Viewer) for viewing grades, attendance and immunization information. Please use your existing txConnect username and password to access the ASCENDER Parent Portal. After 4 unsuccessful login attempts, your account will be locked for 10 minutes. If you do not have a grade viewer account, contact your child's campus counselor for a Parent Portal ID.
You may access the new ASCENDER Parent Portal at https://txeis08.txeis.net/ParentPortal/login?distid=019906 or by using the Parents>Grade Viewer menu on our website. For Parent Portal assistance download the ASCENDER Parent Portal quick start brochure or the more detailed user guide.
You will notice some cosmetic differences in page formatting in ASCENDER as compared to txConnect. To view student grades, log in, and in the gray box on the left side of the screen, choose the drop down menu next to Grades, then choose Cycle and Semester Grades. To view individual assignments, click on the blue grade next to the course for this cycle (six weeks).
PARENTS and GUARDIANS NOTE: Only parents and guardians with an email address on file with the office will continue to receive email/text alerts from the ASCENDER Parent Portal. The email address and cell phone number you provide for verification in the ASCENDER Parent Portal must be the same information you provided in the beginning of the year packet. If your email address or phone number has changed, please inform the campus office. Monitor your child’s grades in ASCENDER and if you are not receiving alerts, contact your child's counselor. Check your student's account periodically. Occasionally, due to technical issues, the alerts you have set up do not send properly. They cannot be resent after they have failed.
STUDENTS NOTE: Students with portal accounts will no longer receive portal alerts.
Update any bookmark, favorite or shortcut to the new ASCENDER Parent Portal Link: https://txeis08.txeis.net/ParentPortal/login?distid=019906.
Parents who have a link saved to their mobile device will need to delete the old link and create a new one.

IMPORTANT CHANGES—Please check out the new morning and afternoon traffic routes parents will use when picking up and dropping off their students.
These are new routes for everyone (including our student drivers) so please be extra cautious as we all adjust to these changes.
*Pre-Kindergarten parents will use the same route as 1st-3rd grade parents. (See 0:53 into the video).
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
