PowerSchool Parent Portal Registration
As many of you are aware, Alabama public schools converted to PowerSchool, which is a new Student Information System (SIS) management technology platform for us.
We are now ready to open the PARENT PORTAL. In the Parent Portal, you will be able to access and view your child's grades and other information.
Access to the Parent Portal requires that a parent or guardian creates an account. Attached to this announcement, you will find links that explain the registration process. The process is very straight forward and intuitive.
IMPORTANT: Your child was given a letter on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 to deliver to you that contains your ACCESS ID NUMBER and an ACCESS PASSWORD. As well, you will find step-by-step instructions in the letter that explain the procedure for creating your account. You cannot create your account without this information. Be sure to ask your child for the letter. Click on the link below to see a copy of the sampe letter.
You must use an Internet Browser and the URL provided in order to create a PowerSchool Parent Account. The account cannot be created from the PowerSchool App (available on the Apple App Store and Google Play). There is an URL listed in the letter (sample letter) to access the site to create your account. You can also click on the link below to navigate to the website to create your account. Once the page opens, select the CREATE ACCOUNT box.
Upon completing the registration process, you will be able to access information regarding your child's grades, etc.
The link below will navigate you to a PowerSchool SIS Student and Parent Portals Quick Start Guide.
If you have any difficulties creating your account, please email Mrs. Renae Robins, Guidance Counselor or Mrs. Marcia Hillsman, Registrar. One of them will be glad to assist you.
