Access to your student’s grades and attendance through PowerSchool is being provided to you as another form of
communication with teachers and administrators. More importantly, it is to help all of us in our efforts to support your
student’s education. Please read these guidelines carefully and fill out the “Request for PowerSchool Access” form.

own usernames/passwords. Do not share your username/password with your student.

Please read the following Acceptable Use Guidelines:
