Chicago Public Schools is excited to announce that starting April 22, 2019, the current Student Portal will be replaced with a new system called Aspen. Aspen will provide the same capabilities of the old Student Portal while adding new features, including historical data, graduation requirements, student fees, and a new, easy-to-use mobile interface.
Getting access to the Aspen Portal
Existing Student Portal accounts will be automatically transferred to Aspen. The new Student Portal URL is aspen.cps.edu and you will use your CPS username (not your email address) and password.
Existing Parent Portal accounts will not automatically be transferred to Aspen*. To access the new system for the first time, current portal users and parents who are interested in creating a portal account for the first time must confirm the following with their school’s main office:
- You are listed as a contact for your student(s) in the current Student Information System, and
- You have an up-to-date email address in the current Student Information System
Assuming the above items are complete, you will receive an email that will start the sign up process.
*The District cannot convert your current portal account over to the new Aspen system automatically. Knowledge of your current Parent Portal password is exclusive to you, and cannot be transferred over.
