How to Create your PowerSchool Parent Portal Account

A parent (or legal guardian) account allows you to view the information for one or more of your students with a single login.

To create a parent account, you will need the following information:

  • This tutorial on how to create your personal account and link your students to it.

  • Name: Your first and last name

  • Email: Your email address. Student notifications and correspondence related to your parent account will be sent to the email address you enter.

  • Desired Username: Your username will be your unique PowerSchool identity used for login

  • Password: Your password must be at least 6 characters long

Student Access Information: Information you MUST have for each student you wish to include:

  • Student name: First and Last

  • Access ID (It was sent in the recent mailing to all parent of students of MdS)

  • Access Password (It was also sent in the same mailing)

  • Your relationship to the student

Step-by-Step How-To Instructions


To begin using the new parent portal, you must first create your new account and then link all your students to that account. As an aid to help you through this process, just follow the steps below. This only needs to be completed one time.

Each parent/legal guardian may use and share the same account, or create separate accounts and individually customize account preferences.


Step 1


Go to  using your favorite internet browser and click the “Create Account” tab

Then click "Create Account"




Step 2


Fill in your account information and note the password requirements.  Now you may begin adding all your students, up to seven.  (See below if more need to be added later)




For "Student Name" enter first and last name.  Using the credentials sent to you in the registration packet.  Enter the "Access ID" and "Access Password."  Note that this will be unique for each student and only needs to be entered once.  Click on "Relationship" to select your relationship to that student.  Do this for each student, using the unique Access ID and Password associated to that student


Step 3


Now you can logon using your new username and password.  Once logged in, you will see the student's first names listed across the top left allowing you to easily select the desired student by clicking their name.
