PowerSchool Parent Portal
The PowerSchool Student and Parent Portal is a tool that is integrated into the PowerSchool Student Information System (SIS) and is specifically developed for parents and students. The PowerSchool Student and Parent portal gives parents, guardians, and students access to real-time information including attendance, grades, detailed assignment descriptions, and school bulletins.
Everyone stays connected: Students stay on top of assignments, parents are able to participate more fully in their student's progress, and teachers can use their grade book to make decisions on what information they want to share with parents and students.
Please read each step to access your parent portal
