PowerSchool Setup Instructions

The PowerSchool Parent Portal allows the parents or guardians of a student the ability to create their own individualized account, view vital student progress information, update important contact information, choose how to receive messages from the school, and view schedule information. When accessing the PowerSchool Parent Portal for the first time a new Parent Account must be created. For security reasons, the creation of this account requires an Access ID and Access Password which is provided by the school or Student Information Services Office. Once you have obtained these codes you can begin creating an account.

Please follow the instructions below carefully to create and link your students to your account.
