I give a strong 1 star, for being STINKY! Aside
from that, FOCUS has proven itself to be a very
lackluster program missing several crucial
element that it's predecessor, Parent Portal,
held. This app in and of itself is a very
disappointing continuation and inconvenient to
use. I have as of yet not been able to navigate
throughout this program well and absent
features accessible via. Parent Portal have
become a hallmark in the transition to this app.
I do advocate change to an extent, however, I
was very enamored with Parent Portal and the
switch to something very clearly inferior to it
has futile reasoning. After delving into the
company behind Focus, I have found out that it
is nothing more than a corporation striving to
have as many schools as possible in
association with Focus, so this review will likely
make no difference as the agency will show no
care to their clienteles judgement

Information + UI

too much extra information without important things like gpa, and if it is on there it’s very difficult to find. some things to find them require you to go into one main section then a subsection then another subsection, it’s just overly complex for no reason.

one thing about parent portal was virtual report cards, and while we haven’t reached the end of a quarter i don’t think it’ll be the same. i liked that with paws you could open the pdf and see your grade average, generic comments, issues, concerns, etc, with a key corresponding to those. i also liked being able to see test scores and what not through it’s dedicated section, now i can’t seem to find anywhere that i can find that.

overall, bad navigation and not enough important information. parent portal was a lot easier to navigate and that made it easy to find what you need.

Dissapointingly useless

It conveys the BARE minimum information for my grade after an complicated sign in process and a terrible, hard to navigate UI. Doesn’t provide any visible benefits over the original parent portal(doesn’t even provide GPA). Whoever made this change needs to be fired or tarred and feathered, and same for whoever designed it.
