Trouble Accessing your PowerSchool Parent Account?
If you cannot access your PowerSchool parent account please first use the automated process located on the Parent Portal Screen “Having trouble signing in?”. If this does not resolve the login issue parents/guardians can contact the school further assistance. The school can only verify the email address that is used with the parent portal account over the phone or email.
Accounts that are locked due to too many login attempts errors will have to come to the school with a picture ID.
