Connect for parents

What is Connect?

Connect is an integrated online environment developed ‘in-house’ by the Department of Education for staff, students and parents in public schools. Connect is integrated with existing Department systems and services including digital resources, Western Australian Curriculum, email and Reporting to Parents. 

You will be able to see information specific to your own child or children such as:

  • The classes in which your children are enrolled
  • Class calendars
  • Week by week attendance information
  • Assessment Outlines information
  • Assessments and results for your own child
  • Work provided on Connect for your child
  • Notices from classes.

Please note that class use of Connect will vary depending on computer availability for students at school and the nature of the subject.

How to access Connect

Upon enrolment, parents will be given their own secure login to Connect through the school.  This will be a P-number as a user name and a starting password that you can change. 

The web address to access Connect is: http://connect.det.wa.edu.au 

If you have multiple children, you will only need one login - even if your children attend different public schools.

You will require Internet access and a computer, tablet or smartphone device

Student Access to Connect

Students access Connect using their school user name and password. Student user accounts are managed at school.
