Dear Parents and Guardians:
You are receiving this letter of invitation to participate in the highly informative program, Power School. Through this web-based program, parents have the ability to check their child’s academic progress weekly in various subjects via the internet. Parents access a secured website through a password-protected log-in system. Great lengths have been taken to ensure that all student data is confidential and accessible only through a unique password/activation code. Parents will be able to view the grade their child receives on each graded assignment as if they were looking at a page of the teacher’s grade book. Parents will also be able to know if their child has not completed an assignment. The program also permits teachers to list long-term assignments and test reminder dates. A Parental activation code is only necessary on initial activation of the PowerSchool Parent account. Once an account is activated the password may be utilized until graduation from the district.
Grades will be updated as teachers submit assignment information. Parents simply need to follow the step-by-step directions and enter the activation code and password on the website provided. Again, if you already have a PowerSchool account, you simply need to sign in using the password used previously. Program support is available to parents by calling Ms. Hibbard, Technology Coordinator, at 724.588.2500, ext. 2406.
