What is PowerSchool?
AUPP High School-Foxcroft Academy uses a school management software called “PowerSchool”. PowerSchool is the “leading provider of cloud-based software in K-12 education” that “connects students, teachers, administrators, and parents with the shared goal of improving student outcomes”. PowerSchool enables AUPPHS-FA educators to make timely decisions that impact student performance while creating a collaborative environment for parents, teachers, students, and administrators to work together in preparing 21st-century learners for the future. One of the benefits of using PowerSchool is that it provides parents and students with real-time information regarding student academic progress.
Information for PowerSchool Parents
One of PowerSchool’s many features is its “web portal”. With internet access and a modern web browser, parents and student(s) can connect to our system to get assignment and attendance information. When a student is enrolled, instructions for setting up an account, including a student username and password are emailed to students. Parents will be sent instructions separately about how to set up an account that will provide them access to their students’ PowerSchool. If you are having trouble accessing your PowerSchool account, please call 023 902 111 and ask for technical support.
When a parent signs into the web portal, they will see a list of students’ courses. You will notice that a grade is presented for that course (more on that in a moment) and that clicking on the grade will link to a list of assignments and the grade for those assignments.
Parents and students can access student academic performances via PowerSchool by using the same link. Parents will be able to login into their children’s accounts by using the student credential information.
Our goal in opening the web portal is for parents and student(s) to be able to keep up with attendance and student progress on individual assignments. We hope parents and student(s) will take advantage of the PowerSchool web portal. It provides a shared and up- to-date platform that conveys student performance. Let’s use that power together to improve student academic performance!
