A page named Create Parent Account is available in the PowerSchool Parent Portal and is accessible via Sign-In page > Create Account. This page allows parents to establish their own parent account. The first section of the page, “Create Parent Account”, is the information necessary to establish the parent’s account.
All fields in the section are required, and include the following:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Desired Username
- Re-enter Password
The second section on the page, “Link Students to Account”, requires that the information for at least one student be provided, and includes the following:
- Student Name
- Access ID
- Access Password
Parents may enter the information for up to seven students when initially establishing their account. If they need to add additional students they can do so after establishing the account by signing in and navigating to Account Manager > Students. Common data entry errors include not completing all fields, entering an email address or username that is already associated with another account or entering incorrect access IDs or passwords. When this occurs, parents will need to re-enter any information that was not entered correctly, and also re-enter any passwords for security reasons.
