myRCS Profile Update
*To access the Student Portal (which contains schedules, report cards, transcripts, attendance, bus info, etc.) for the first time, click on the Reports link in the menu bar and select the Student Portal tile.
We recently updated to a new profile version of myRCS. Please refer to the document below under the Files & Folders section on the website for more information.
myRCS is optimized for use with Internet Explorer and we are working on incorporating use on Ipads and mobile devices. However, this will require substantial development work and will take some time. myRCS may have run on some of these devices prior to the upgrade, however, it was not supported.
