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.

  1. Log into your parent account

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.
  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...
