PowerSchool is the school district's electronic student management system where student information is collected and stored. The portal is the "doorway" into the system giving parents access to information about their children.
The PowerSchool Parent Portal gives parents and students access to real-time information that may included attendance, grades, lunch balances and detailed assignment descriptions and school bulletins. Everyone stays connected. Students can stay on top of assignments, parents are able to participate in their children's progress, and teachers can share information with parents and students.

Question 1: What is PowerSchool and How do I get my students Information to Sign on?

Answer: PowerSchool is a student information system that allows us to manage a wide range of information, that may include the following: grades, attendance, tests,demographics, activities, courses, and photos. Because the program has been designed using Internet-based software tools, it also allows us to connect parents and students to information.Your schools office may give you the instructions and access codes you need to create your new account or if you have any questions please contact the PowerSchool administrator Chasina Worman at at (907) 247-2139.

Question 2:
Do all teachers post grade and attendance information to the PowerSchool server?
Answer: Not all schools post grades, all do post attendance.  Attendance is posted by teachers and by the office. Some teachers assign and post grades to PowerSchool at different times. Some may give grades to their students’ everyday and some may give far fewer grades during the marking periods. This is up to each teacher and depends upon their grading system. If you see grades in PowerSchool for some teachers but not others, this is a normal function of the way teachers assign and post grades. As always you may contact teachers by e-mail or request a phone call or meeting at any time.
Question 3: How often can we expect grades to be updated?
Answer: There are many factors that determine how soon a teacher can assess and return assignments. Essays, research papers, and tests take longer to grade than a quiz. Coaching, club sponsorships, and family commitments can also affect turnaround time, as well as a teacher's student load. All teachers do their best to grade their students and communicate their progress in a timely manner.
Question 4: Can other people see my son’s/daughter’s grades?
Answer: As long as you protect your password, others will not be able to see your information.
