PowerSchool Frequently Asked Questions
What is PowerSchool?
PowerSchool is a web-based computer program that allows parents or guardians to access their child's demographic information and attendance. Grades are also accessible for Valley View students only. Attendance information is updated daily. Grades are updated as teachers enter information into their grade books. Parents should allow a reasonable amount of time for assignments to be graded and for scores to be posted.
All parents or guardians have the opportunity to access PowerSchool. Parents or guardians must have an Access ID and Access Password to link their child to their account. If you did not receive your child's Access ID and Access Password via email, contact Mr. McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
