How to Create Your PowerSchool Parent Portal Account

A parent (or legal guardian) account allows you to view the information for one or more of your students with a single login.

To create a parent account, you will need the following information:

  • This tutorial on how to create your personal account and link your students to it.
  • Name: Your first and last name
  • Email: Your email address. Student notifications and correspondence related to your parent account will be sent to the email address you enter.
  • Desired Username: Your username will be your unique PowerSchool identity used for login
  • Password: Your password must be at least 6 characters long

Student Access Information: Information you MUST have for each student you wish to include:

  • Student name: First and Last
  • Access ID (Will be mailed to all parents of enrolled students)
  • Access Password (Will be mailed to all parents of enrolled students)
  • Your relationship to the student

Step-by-Step How-To Instructions

To begin using the new parent portal, you must first create your new account and then link all your students to that account. As an aid to help you through this process, just follow the steps below. This only needs to be completed one time.

Each parent/legal guardian may use and share the same account, or create separate accounts and individually customize account preferences.

Step 1
Go to using your favorite internet browser and click the “Create Account” tab. Then click “Create Account”
