Student Information (Home Base)
How do parents get started?
Step 1. Complete the access request forms.
Hand deliver the completed access request form to the school. Notarized forms can be mailed to your child’s school. Download the notary public form or photo ID form. Check with your school to make sure a notarized form is being accepted.
Step 2. Wait for your access letter and instructions.
Once your child's school has verified your forms, they will provide you with a welcome letter with a link to a Quick Guide ( Elementary School ).
Step 3. Create a Parent Portal account.
Use the information you received in your letter to create your Parent Portal account. For help creating an account, download directions ( Elementary School ). When you are ready, you can create an account here: wcpss.powerschool.com/public.
Step 4. Link your students to your account.
Once you’ve created your Parent Portal account, use the access ID and password provided on the letter from the school to view your child’s data. Does your access ID and password still not work? Make sure you’ve created your Parent Portal account first. Still having issues? Download and read the directions ( Elementary School ).
Step 5. Need Help? Please review the FAQs below prior to contacting the school for assistance. Questions regarding grades can be e-mailed to your child’s teacher.
