PowerSchool is a secure web-based student information system that provides real-time updates to parents, teachers, students and school administrators about student performance. The program is made available through the N.C. Department of Public Instruction.
The Parent Portal component of PowerSchool is a convenient Internet-based program that makes it easy for parents to monitor and track their child’s academic progress. Parents will have access to attendance, schedules, grades and other important information. (Work of kindergarten through second grade students is not graded on a numeric system; therefore, grades for these students are not accessible on PowerSchool. Attendance information is available for these students.)
There is no
cost to use PowerSchool, but a computer with Internet access will be
needed to view the website. If the Internet is not available in the
home, parents and students may access the portals using computers available at
public library branches.
