  Log On to the PowerSchool Parent Portal 

 

Welcome to the PPS PowerSchool Parent Portal Home Page!

This resource is a web-based communication tool that allowsparents/guardians and students secure access to view grade, assignment,and attendance information. Assignments and student performance can beviewed as soon as entries are made by teachers into their electronicgradebooks. Reports and email notifications are also available in theviewer. Students will have separate accounts with unique logininformation. This service is available at our middle andhigh schools and grades three through six for elementary schools.

Although the PowerSchool Parent Portal is a very usefultool, it is not intended to replace direct communication betweenstudents, parents, and other staff members. The program isstraightforward and very user-friendly – just point and click and youwill have secure access to your student’s attendance, assignments, andgrades. If questions arise, please check first with your child and/ortheir teacher, then, if unanswered, contact the guidance counselor, thenthe Principal.

Security and Accountability

Each parent/guardian will receive a separate Access ID andPassword for each student. Once each parent/guardian enters the AccessID and Password, they will create their own account, specifying theiremail address and the password they want to use.  The Access ID andPassword is randomly generated and must be picked up at your student'sschool. Students will be given their own Username and Password. TheAccess ID/Password and Username/Password are confidential and should notbe shared with others. If you have more than one student, you willenter the Access ID and Password for each student in the account youcreated.  Note: Students cannot change their passwords.

The ability to access your student’s grade information and monitor their progress is a privilege for parents. The PPS PowerSchool Parent Portal site is governed by the Division’s Acceptable Use Agreement (AUP).In addition to this main agreement, there are also product-specificterms detailed on the Conditions of Use Pre-Login Entry Page.

If a student is new to the district or parents/guardians havenever picked up an Access ID and Password, please contact the school.The Acess ID and Password must be picked up from the student's schoolin person; they will not be given out over the phone.
