PowerSchool is an online portal that enables parents, teachers and administrators to access the school's database at any time. Parents can retrieve information, such as their child's grades, attendance, schedule and teachers' comments. If the parent has multiple children, each child's progress will display under different tabs on the screen upon login. Teachers can access their class schedules, submit lunch counts and manage students' attendance and progress. Administrators can enroll new students, print labels and update student records. A valid login is required to access the portal.
