Why Create A PowerSchool Parent Account?

Once a student is entered into the PowerSchool SIS (Student Information System), each parent/guardian for that student is welcome to create a Powerschool public portal account.

Parent accounts can be used to check a student's attendance and meal balance.

For students in grades 6-12, grades progress can also be viewed.

Information Needed To Connect To A Student

A parent needs two numbers for each student that will be connected to that parent's PowerSchool account.

The "access id" is the child's 5-digit Powerschool number, which can be obtained from the school's main office.

The "access password" is the child's birthdate in MMDDYYYY format. Leading zeros for January-September birth dates must be included.

How To Create A Powerschool Parent Account

  1. Go to https://region18.powerschool.com/public
  2. Click on the Create Account button:
  3. On the top portion of this page,  fill in your parent/guardian first name, last name, email address, desired username and password:
  4. On the bottom portion of this page, for each student you have that information for, enter the Student Name, Access ID and Access Password. If you do not have the access id or access password for the student for whom you are a parent/guardian, please email Tammy Noyes.
  5. Use the relationship pull-down menu to choose your relationship to the student listed on that line (you are the father, mother, etc...)
  6. Click on the Enter button.

How To Add Another Child To An Existing Parent Account

If you made a parent account previously, and need to add another student to that account:
  1. Log into your parent account
  2. Click on Account Preferences in the left-hand column
  3. Select the Students tab in the right-hand pane
  4. Click on the Add button and enter the student name, access id and access password
  5. Use the Relationship pull-down menu to choose your relationship to the student
  6. Click on the Enter button
  7. Now, you will have buttons to choose from at the top of the portal window for each child you'd like to access info about

Checking Your Child's Meal And Fee Balances

  1. Log into the Powerschool portal
  2. Click on the Balance button in the left hand menu:
  3. Your child's Meal Transactions Balance will be at the top of the page. A positive meal balance means that the student has credit against which he/she can charge. A negative meal balance means that the student owes money to the school district. Please note that this meal balance is updated regularly from the MySchoolBucks system, but not instantaneously. If you log into the MySchoolBucks site, you can see the most up-to-date meal balance information and also, make payments.
  4. Scroll down the page. Below the meal transactions is your child's Fee Transactions Balance. In contrast to what is true about meal balances, a positive fee balance means that your child owes money to the school district. This could be for lost books, athletic uniforms, etc...
