What is Powerschool?
PowerSchool is our online student information system that helps you track your child's progress throughout the school year. We encourage parents to set up a PowerSchool account to keep up to date on student performance and be better equipped to help their child succeed.
In PowerSchool, parents are able to access the following for each of their children:
- Grades and Attendance for the current semester
- Grade history for previous semester grades
- Attendance history
- Teacher Comments
- Fee balance (shows fee transactions for the year and balance due, if any)
- My Calendars allows parents to subscribe to email progress reports
Instructions for setting up a Parent PowerSchool account:
There is a prompt on the page to create a PowerSchool account — Click on Create Account and fill in the information requested, then select a username and password for yourself.
In the student information section, enter your child’s name, the Access ID and Access PW provided by the school, and your relationship to the student (mother, father, etc).
If you have more than one student at Metro, enter all the names, Access IDs and Access PWs you were provided, then click on "submit" at the bottom when done. Once your account is set up, you will be able to toggle between all your students to view their progress on your parent account.
You should receive a message that you successfully created an account, and you can then log in with the UN and PW you created. Once you’ve logged in, you will see a grid of your student’s classes, the teachers, and the current grades. Anything that’s in blue can be “clicked” on to see more detail. For instance, if you click on the grade for the class, you will get a list of the assignments and the scores to date.
Students are given their own login information so they can monitor their progress as well.
