    You need to go to your school's office to get the access code. You will probably be asked for identification.

    Your username should contain your name and some kind of other letters. If your name was Ben, you could call yourself Ben0123. Or any numbers. Putting your birthday in your name allows people to know personal information about you.

      Tips

      • Try entering your children’s names exactly as they are registered in the school system if PowerSchool cannot find your children in the system. For example, if you registered your child with their first, middle, and last names, enter all three names into the “Name” field when creating a PowerSchool account.[1]

        Thanks

      • If your children attended the same school the previous year, try signing into PowerSchool using the same login credentials as before. In many cases, schools will not change or update PowerSchool login credentials for returning students.
