PowerSchool is the district's Student Information System, used to
manage all student data. This web-based system allows real-time access
to attendance, grades and other vital data. Through your web browser,
such as Internet Explorer, Safari, or Firefox, you log in using a secure
ID and password provided to you by the school. You will have a
separate login ID and password per child. Students in grades 6-12 have
their own login ID and password, and should not use their parent's login
is also a mobile app that can be downloaded on iOS or Android devices
that provides the same access on your smartphone or tablet device. You
can find information on downloading the app here.
