Starting at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, The Belle Vernon Area School District transitioned to Sapphire K-12 as our Student Information System and Grade Book. All parents, teachers, students, and staff will use Sapphire as the database for our student records. 


    This section of our website will be used for transition information, training videos, and links that will be required to access information on students including grades, schedules, etc. online. 




    The New Sapphire Community Portal - Information for Parents and Students

    Exciting changes have been made to the Sapphire Community Portal (SCP), formerly known as the Community Web Portal! The redesigned SCP has updated logos, colors, and illustrations and is built to be used on almost any internet-connected device - computer, tablet, or phone. It is easier to navigate and upload documents. In addition, users no longer need a PIN to log on. User accounts are automatically converted, with virtually no effort by school administrators.

    The New Sapphire Community Portal

    Your account will be automatically upgraded in three easy steps.

    1. Log in to the new SCP at the same URL and with the same Username and Password you currently use.  


    2. You are prompted to enter your PIN one final time to continue.

    3. Parents are prompted to change their Password and may be prompted to change their Username. Students continue to use the same Password and Username. All users must click or tap Complete to continue.



    The Upgrade Complete screen displays and users are redirected to the new SCP home screen. Users receive an automated email notification that their account was upgraded.




    FAQs for Parents and Students

    How are accounts converted?

    Parents and students log in once with the same username, password, and PIN they used previously.

    • Parents have the option to change their username, and are required to change it if there is a conflict with another account. Students are not able to change their username.
    • Parents must change their password. Students only have to change their password if there is a conflict with another account.


    What if one student has multiple accounts?

    When a student's account is converted, any other student accounts that exist for the same student are deactivated, leaving only one account attached to that individual student. For example, if a student has two accounts because they applied for a new account when they forgot their password, once one account is converted to a PIN-less account, it will be the only active account for that student.


    When will a student be required to change their password?

    Student accounts will not be prompted to change their password in most cases. Students will only be prompted to change their password if there is a potential conflict with an existing account.


    Why must parents change their passwords but not students?

    Many schools use the same student username and password combinations for other utilities. For that reason, Sapphire is not requiring a password change.


    Why can parents change their usernames but not students?

    Student usernames are created by school administrators and are often used for other utilities in the school system.


    Can a parent change their username to an email address?

    Yes, they can. The new SCP allows email addresses to be used as account usernames.
