Unified Classroom Parent Portal Setup
 
Starting 2018-2019, PowerSchool Unified Classroom is the new Parent Portal.  Parents are encouraged to access Unified Classroom to view their student's attendance, assignments*, and more. 

*Elementary Parents: The Elementary Standards-Based Reporting System is being developed therefore there is no "Grading" information within Unified Classroom for elementary students at this time. 
 
STEP 1: ALL PARENTS MUST CREATE A "POWERSCHOOL ID" FIRST 
("PowerSchool ID" is new and is not the same as a previous PowerSchool SSO Parent Portal ID. Every Parent must do this once to use Unified Classroom.)
