PowerSchool Parent Portal FAQ's

  • Question 1: What is PowerSchool and How do I get my student's 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 school's 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 chasina.worman@kgbsd.org 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 every day and some may provide 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: Many factors 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 promptly.
