What is the Aspen Family Portal?
Aspen is a Student Information Management System created by X2 Development Corporation, a subsidiary of the Follet Company and is available as our student information system.
The Dover Sherborn Public Schools use Aspen to manage student information including grading, scheduling, attendance, discipline, report cards, teacher pages, and other data. Parents/guardians can securely log into Aspen to view information about their children. Login information is available at the start of each school year.

ASPEN Teacher Websites
Please note that some teachers use different programs to set up their classroom websites. There is a link to each teacher website under the PARENT INFORMATION tab from the top navigation menu on your school site. If your teacher has an Aspen Page as their website, then you will need to login to Aspen first before you can access the page. Once logged in, simply click on the word, PAGES on the left navigation bar. In the next window, you will see all teacher pages that are listed for public viewing. Be sure that your teacher has told you the name of their website page for easy access.
