GSACRD uses the PowerSchool Parent Portal to provide families with information about a child's attendance, classes, and grades. 

Parents will receive an access ID and password from their child's school, along with instructions on how to create an account. Each school will determine when the portal will open for their students; please contact your child's school administration for more information.

The PowerSchool Parent Portal allows parents to access all of their child's information in one place, including grades and attendance.

Creating a Parent Portal Account

Creating a Parent Portal Account

To get started, you must create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account and attach each of your children to that account. You will need to get an Access ID and Access Password for each of your children from their school(s) in order to create the account.

Please note, you must create your account using the PowerSchool Parent Portal in a web browser. You cannot create an account in the PowerSchool app.

  1. Log on to the PowerSchool Parent Portal
  2. Click on the Create Account Tab
  3. Enter your First Name, Last Name and Email Address
  4. Create a Desired Username and Password.
  5. Re-enter your Password (it must be at least 8 characters long).
  6. Link your students to your account:
    1. Enter the PARENT Access ID, Access Password and Relationship for each student you wish to add to your Parent Account. Your school may have sent this to you via email or sent it home with your child. If you have not received it, please call your school and request it. If you have multiple children, you need to get a Parent Access ID and Access Password for each child from their school. Each child will have a different Parent Access ID and Access Password associated with them.
    2. After you have entered all students, click ENTER at the bottom of the page.
  7. You are now ready to access the Parent Portal with the Username and Password that you created in Step 4 above.
