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
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:
Click the Create Account tab
Click Create Account
Fill out the Parent Account Details section
Fill out the Link Students Accounts Section with the Access ID and Access Password provided by the school
Select your relationship to the student (mother, father, etc.)
At this time, enter all the school provided information for each of your children (names, Access IDs, Access Passwords, and relationship)
Click on the Enter button at the bottom of the page

Once your account is set up, you will be able to toggle between each of your students to view their progress on your parent account.
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.
