  • Parent Portal

    The Parent Portal is a tool designed to keep parents informed of their child's academic progress; it is a supplement to other school-parent communication. A single sign-on functionality is available that allows parents to have a single account for multiple children. In order to access the Parent Portal, a single sign-on account must be created. Children can be added to an account by utilizing the account ID and password provided by the child's school.

    Setting Up Your Account

    Print a copy of the Parent Portal Access Request Form. Complete the form and bring it, and your photo ID, to your child's school.

    Once the information is validated, the Parent Portal ID and password will be emailed to the address provided on the form. This information will be needed to assign students to your Parent Portal single sign-on account. Note: the access ID and password are not your Parent Portal credentials.

    Prior to creating your single sign-on account, you will need the access ID(s) and password(s) emailed by your child's school. Contact the school if you misplaced the information.

    Use a web browser to navigate to the PowerSchool login. Log in and select the CREATE ACCOUNT tab and the CREATE ACCOUNT button. Follow the questions to enter your first name, your last name, your email address, your desired username, and your chosen password.

    Select the LINK STUDENTS TO ACCOUNT tab and follow the questions to enter your child's name, the associated access ID for the child, the associated password, and the relationship you have to the child. Repeat these steps to add additional children to your single sign-on account.
