PowerSchool Parent Portal
What is the Powerschool Parent Portal? The Parent Portal is a web site that allows parents/guardians to create a secure account and log in to view their children's grades, attendance, and other information about their child.
- Username and passwords are to be kept confidential.
- It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to protect the security of the login and password. Laurens 55 School District accepts no responsibility in the event the username and password is shared, given, stolen, or in any other way becomes the possession of a person other than the parent/guardian.
- You can request your password be sent from a hyperlink on the login page. The parent/guardian will need to visit the school office and show a picture ID to receive their access code/password or ssues related to access codes.
- Talk to your child to ask him about his grades or attendance.
- Review the teacher’s grading policy. Remember the information on PowerSchool® is subject to change and the information posted is not the official Progress Report, Report Card or Student Transcript.
- Email the teacher with your questions or concerns.
- Request a meeting with the teacher following the school procedures for arranging meetings.
