What is PowerSchool Parent Portal?
PowerSchool Parent Portal gives parents and students access to real-
time information including attendance, grades, and detailed
assignment descriptions. Once parents have created their account,
they will be able to manage their account information, link any and all
students to your account, and set email and notification preferences
for each student linked to your account. If account sign-in information
has been forgotten, it can be retrieved by using the auto-recovery
feature on the sign-in page.
