What is Aspen?
Aspen is a Student Information Management System created by Follett Software. Easton Public Schools uses Aspen to manage student information including grades, scheduling, attendance, discipline, special education and other data. While the entire district uses Aspen, student portal accounts are only available for Oliver Ames High School and Easton Middle School students. Parents can log into Aspen to view information about their children using their child’s login credentials.

How do I set up my computer to access Aspen?
Aspen may be accessed with any Internet-connected computer. You can use just about any web browser - Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome or others. You must allow pop-ups in any and all pop-up blockers you have installed or allow pop-ups from Easton Public Schools.
When do I receive my child’s username and password?
Student usernames and passwords are mailed to parents/guardians prior to the start of school.
I have multiple children in the Easton Public Schools - can I have one parent account for all my children?
At this time Easton does not have the Parent Portal open which would allow access to all your children from one logon. You must login to each child’s Aspen account separately using their username and password provided.
How do I access my student's grading info? (Only available for students at Oliver Ames High School and Easton Middle School)
