Accessing PowerSchool

  • PowerSchool button PowerSchool is the district’s online student information system.

     
     
    To access your child’s grades and attendance records you will need to create a PowerSchool Parent account. In order to create an account, you must know your Parent Access ID and Access Password. These login credentials can be obtained from the main office of your student’s school.
     
     (Picture below is an example of what the PowerSchool account screen looks like.)

    You do not need to create different accounts if you have multiple children. One Parent access account will work for all of your children.
