What is Aspen?
Aspen is a secure Web-based Student Information Management System produced by X2 Development Corporation for school districts. The system manages all facets of student data - from attendance to conduct and schedules.
Swansea Public Schools has been using Aspen since 2003 with great success. We are now implementing the Student portal so parents, teachers, and administrators can work together and communicate more effectively and efficiently.
What information can I access through Aspen?
You, as a parent/guardian, can use your login to securely access the information for your child from just about anywhere. With Aspen, you can access:
- Family contact and emergency information
- Conduct and Attendance information
Aspen protects your student's information with the same advanced technology your bank uses to protect your financial accounts. Rest assured that all Aspen users only have access to information they need, and nothing more. We have carefully configured the system to ensure that your student's information is confidential and can only be retieved by the parent/guardian - and authorized school personnel.
You can only view, not edit your child's data. If you find that it is outdated or incorrect, notify your child's school to correct any errors.
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, or others. You do need to enable pop-ups in any and all pop up blockers you have installed to allow pop-ups from https://ma-swansea.myfollett.com
How do I access the system?
