Q&A: PowerSchool Account Information


Where can I find My Account Information?


Contact your School or District for access information and instructions. You can visit your school or District Website, or speak with your School or District Administrators.

PowerSchool logins are granted by Schools and Districts. Each school will verify your Identity before giving you an account to help protect Student Data and Privacy. From there, you can log in to your school or district’s respective portal.


You will need to get the following information from your school or district:

  • Link to Parent or Student Portal
  • Access ID for the student(s)



How do I log into PowerSchool?


To log in for the first time:

  1. Access the Parent or Student Portal. Each school or district has a unique link for parents and students to access their portals. You can receive this link from your school or district administrators. Links are specific to each school or district, and PowerSchool as a company does not publish a list of all the web addresses for all of our clients.
  2. Create an Account. Once in the Parent or Student Portal, you will need to create an account. Be sure to store your username and password in a secure manner.
  3. Add your students. Use the Access ID for each of your students to link them to your account.

Once you have created an account:

  1. Visit the Parent or Student Portal
  2. Enter your Username and Password

Note: Registration must be done via the School/District Web Portal.

Hi @ardavis 


Thank you for reaching out in the Community!


You can refer to this article: Adding Students to the Parent Portal to add a student to your Parent Portal. 


This quick guide: Student and Parent Portal Quick Start Guide to help you 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. You will need to set those using the Create Account button on the Parent Portal page. 


In case you 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.
