The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically... Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education. 

-Martin Luther King Jr.


Do more than exist, live.

Do more than touch, feel.

Do more than look, observe.

Do more than read, absorb.

Do more than hear, listen.

Do more than listen, understand.

Do more than think, ponder.

Do more than talk, say something.

Parent Portal

The Parent Portal is a web-based system that all Boone County Schools use to house information and data about your child. It is a great way to stay on top of your child's progress throughout the school year. Your child's grades are updated on a weekly basis (usually Monday morning) so you can be as up to date with their progress as possible.   One helpful hint:  When looking at your child's grades, if the data is left blank it simply means the grade has not yet been entered.  This does not lower or negatively effect your child's grade in anyway.  If an assignment has not been completed or submitted there will be a zero or a "missing" notation entered into the grade area.   

Your log in works from school to school within Boone County, so if you had access from the elementary or middle school in prior years, you can use that access information for your child at Cooper.  


1.  If you do not have access to log-in; please stop by our main office to obtain the activation code and step-by-step instructions.   You will need a photo ID in order to receive the activation code.  Dory Branch is the contact person.

2.  Once you have access; please check the information we have on file to ensure it is correct. An e-mail address is one item that tends to change frequently.  If your e-mail address is changing due to Time Warner, please update your e-mail via the Parent Portal.
