Using PowerSchool


Elm uses PowerSchool to help parents and students keep track of a variety of important academic information, such as grades, attendance, assignments and class schedules.

The process begins when Elm teachers and administrators enter data into the PowerSchool system, which keeps the information private and secure. 

To gain access to their own data, parents and students must login to the PowerSchool Student and Parent Portal. The login page can be found here. Parents and students will be provided with access credentials. 


What PowerSchool Provides


Once inside their accounts, students and parents have access to real-time information from Elm teachers and administrators on topics that include the following:

► Grades and attendance

► Test results

► Grade history

► Attendance history

► Teacher comments

► Class registration

► Student schedule

► School information

Directions for using PowerSchool can be found here [insert page link when available], and a video introduction for parents is available here [insert page link when available].


Where to Access PowerSchool


Elm parents and students can gain access to PowerSchool through a web browser, such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Explorer

Additionally, parents and students may load the free PowerSchool Mobile app to their iOS or Android device. (A four-digit code supplied by the district is needed to use the app.)

Customizing the Information You Receive


While inside their PowerSchool accounts, parents may also request email notifications of certain types of information, such as a summary of current grades and attendance or a detailed report showing assignment scores for each class.
