Want to check on your student's progress in class?  Use the Portal..... it should be up and running as of Wed., Aug. 29 for this school year. 

 The portal for Bret Harte is open to Parents and Students with Schedules, Assignments & Attendance information.

Portal URL:

Student Portal Access: (students will see only their data)

  • *Login is Student ID
  • If students logged in last year, they will use the password they setup.
  • If they are new to IC their Password is «first name initial»«last name initial»birthdate MMDDYY» (they can change their password after logging in).
  • Parents who forget their Portal log-in or password can click on "Problems logging in?", type in their email address and they will be sent an email with their login information.
  • If an email address is used for more than one person in IC this feature will not work.
  • SJUSD is encouraging students and parents to make sure that their information, including email address, is correct in IC.
