What is PowerSchool?
PowerSchool is our online student information system. It allows you to see grades and attendance in "real time" or live data. Parents can have their own account to view their students.
How do I get a PowerSchool logon?
If you have not had a PowerSchool log-on before, you will need to bring a photo ID to the high school to establish your account. You will be given an access ID and password. You will use these codes to create your own personalized log in.
All parent/guardians MUST create a new account. On the login screen, select “create account” at the bottom of the screen. During the set up, you will be asked for your student’s access ID and access Password. This feature allows you to have your own userid that you create and allows you to link all of your students with one sign on. For more detailed instructions, click here.
Click here for the parent login screen: Parent PowerSchool Login
What can I see on PowerSchool?
You can view your child’s grades, attendance, A+ information, historical grades and course requests for the next school year. Important announcements are also listed in the “daily bulletin”. All grades and attendance are LIVE data, meaning that as soon as the teacher updates, you will see it immediately.
How do I see grade detail and/or any missing assignments?
Click on the grade link for the class you wish to view. This will bring up a detailed list of the gradebook assignments for the class and the grade your child earned for each assignments.
I’ve tried calculating my child’s grade and it seems higher that what is showing. Why is that?
Assignments are set up into categories which can be weighted differently such as quizzes/tests, homework etc. These assignments can carry different percentage points towards the final grade. Each teacher sets up their own weightings and vary by department. The final exam is weighted according to the guidelines set by each department, usually 10-20% of the total grade. If you simply add all the assignments and divide by the total points possible, you will not get an accurate grade. For questions with specific grades, please contact your child’s teacher.
How do I email the teachers?
Click on the teacher name link which will open your default email program.
We are parents that live apart. How can we both get a copy of our child’s report cards or other information?
Contact the guidance office to get put on the duplicate mailing list for your child. Currently, this option only allows for duplicate mailings on report cards and any discipline letters.
