Instructions for Parents - Parent Portal (not for InfoSnap Form access)


Instructions for Parents - Parent Portal (not for InfoSnap Form access)

Does anyone have a generic letter or instruction guide that is not 50 pages long that you'd be willing to share with.  I would like to provide an external use quick guide to parents/students how they would sign into the Parent/Student Portal after their Web Acct has been established in our SIS Contact Details and Student Contacts screens; or the Account Access screen for the student.  How do you use the Access ID and Access Code now that you are supposed to not set up one for each individual student if they have multiple children at your school or district?  The references for the Parent Portal I've found on Community seemed outdated and mostly for internal use?  Thank you.

Hi @AmyK6 


Thank you for reaching out in the Community!  


The parents can refer to this article, How do I log into PowerSchool, to setup up the Parent Portal account. You can share this quick guide: Student and Parent Portal Quick Start Guide to help them access the Parent Portal.


The unique access ID and Password help link students to the Parent Portal account and is provided by the district. It is not the same as the Parent Portal credentials. The parents will have to set those using the Create Account button on the Parent Portal page. They can also refer to this article: Adding Students to the Parent Portal to add a student to your Parent Portal.


In case the parents are using the PowerSchool SIS Mobile App, this article: Using-the-PowerSchool-Mobile-App, should guide them on the process to link the Parent portal.
