The Parent Portal and the Student Portal

What is the Student Portal?
The student portal is an online portal accessible anywhere on the web that students can log in to and see their grades, assignments, scores, attendance, schedules, school bulletin, and more.

How do I log in to the Student Portal?
Each school or district has a unique link for parents and students to access their portals.  Visit your school or district’s website, or speak with your school administrators to find how what link you need. Links are specific to each school or district, and PowerSchool as a company does not publish a list of all the web addresses for all of our clients.

What is the Parent Portal?
The parent portal is an online portal accessible anywhere on the web that parents can log in to and see all of their children in one place, their grades, assignments, scores, attendance, schedules, and school bulletins for each school your children attend. If you have one student in middle school and one in high school, parents will see bulletins for both the middle school and high school.

How do I log in to the Parent Portal?
Each school or district has a unique link for parents and students to access their portals. Visit your school or district’s website, or speak with your school administrators to find how what link you need. Links are specific to each school or district, and PowerSchool as a company does not publish a list of all the web addresses for all of our clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I use the PowerSchool app?

A: We’ve created a video that explains how to use the PowerSchool app. Watch it here.

Q: I’m new to PowerSchool. How can I find my account information?

A: Please contact your school/district for instructions on how to create your account or find your username. After your account has been created, be sure to sign in via the web portal that first time, so that you can reset your password, if necessary, and verify the account is working.

Note: Registration must be done via the school/district web portal.

 

Q: How can I find my District Code?

A: The District Code can be found by signing in to your school’s web portal. When you sign in, the District Code should be visible in the black box located in the lower left-hand corner.

You can also use the app to determine the District Code.

To use app to determine the District Code:

  1. Tap Where is my district code? just below the District Code entry boxes
  2. Tap Search for Your District at the bottom of the screen
  3. Enter your school’s URL into the third box
  4. Tap Submit

 

Q: How do I reset my password?

A: Students should contact their school to reset their password. Parents can reset their password through the website as long as the district has enabled this feature. If you encounter any difficulties with the following instructions, please reach out to your school for further assistance.

To reset passwords from your school’s web portal:

  1. Click the link Forgot Username or Password?
  2. Enter the username and email address for your account, then click Enter
  3. You should receive the email as an email from your school. If you aren’t seeing the email, check your Junk or Spam folder.
  4. Click on the password reset link in the email you receive.
  5. Enter a new password.
  6. Log in to the website to verify the password has been successfully reset and is working
  7. Log in to the app

 

Q: When I try to sign in on the app I’m getting the error “Invalid Username or Password.” How can I resolve this?

A: First, log into your school’s website. While you are there, double-check the district code.

If you are able to log into the website, but not the app, this may be due to a capitalization error. The website is not case sensitive in the username field, but the app is. If your school supports resetting your password via the website, you can check your username in a similar fashion. You can also check with your school to determine the correct capitalization.

To request your exact username:

  1. Navigate to your school’s web portal
  2. Click the link Forgot Username or Password?
  3. Click on the Forgot Username? tab
  4. Enter email address, and click Enter
  5. You should receive an email from your school with the correct capitalization of your username.

If you have verified the capitalization and can sign in via the website, send us an email at mobile.support@powerschool.com, noting the steps you have taken so far.

 

Q: How can I add a second student to my parent account?

A: If you have more than one student attending the same school, or if you were advised to use the same District Code or web address, you can add these students to your account through the web portal.

To add a student via the web portal:

  1. After signing in to the web portal, click Account Preferences on the left menu.
  2. Under Account Preferences, click on the Students tab.
  3. Now click on the Add + button and follow the necessary steps.

If your students are accessed through different District Codes or websites, you will need to sign out and then back in to view each student, as the District Code is a part of your credentials and assists the app in determining which server to reach out to when verifying your username and password.

 

Q: How can I change the email address for my parent account?

A: This can be changed through your school’s web portal.

  1. After signing in to the web portal, click Account Preferences on the left menu.
  2. Select the Profile tab
  3. Change email entered on this page and click Submit

Note: Your district may have disabled the setup screen. If so, please contact your school administrator directly. Student emails should be changed by contacting the school as well.

 

Q: When I try to look at a particular feature, such as GPA, I’m seeing a message stating the feature is “disabled.” How can I fix this?

A: Features such as GPA, assignment grades, and schedule are configured on a school-by-school basis by your school district’s PowerSchool administrators.

If you believe a feature may have been disabled or left disabled unintentionaly, reach out to your district and let them know. Your school district’s PowerSchool administrators can contact support directly if further assistance is needed to make changes.
