PowerSchool Parent Access System 
Introduction 
We are planning to launch PowerSchool Parent Access System this coming school year.We plan to register logon accounts this fall for some parental access. It may be established for the middle school first. Then in the future the younger grades may be included. 
The PowerSchool Parent Access System is intended to provide parents, students and teachers with a tool to communicate student performance. It is a Web-based application that may be accessed from any place the parent/guardian can access the Internet. The application is a secure link that encrypts the data to and from the end user. In addition, a username and password are provided to allow access for only authorized users to the appropriate student record. 

PowerSchool now provides single sign-on access to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. With single sign-on access parents/guardians can now have their own individual parent/guardian account, including user name and password. You may create your own account using the appropriate access credentials. Once your account is created, you can manage your account information, link any and all students to your account (for whom you have parental and legal rights to), and set email and notifications preferences for each student linked to your account. If you've forgotten your account login information, you can retrieve them by using auto-recovery.
