CCSD93 PowerSchool Parent Portal (PPP) Introduction
What is PowerSchool Parent Portal?
PowerSchool Parent Portal is an Internet based viewer that allows you to view your child's standards achievement grades and attendance directly from his/her teacher's gradebook. Early in the school year you will receive a letter from your child's school containing your user name and password information. The username and password will remain the same for as long as your student is attending CCSD93. Teachers do not have access to student passwords and password information is not given directly to students. If for some reason you did not receive a letter or have misplaced the information, please contact your school office and a new letter will be mailed home.
How do I get to PowerSchool Parent Portal (PPP)?

PowerSchool Parent Portal (PPP) FAQ
What if I want others to have access to my child’s grades (Grandparents, Aunt/Uncle)?
If you want others to have access to your child’s grades via PowerSchool’s Parent Portal, you will need to provide them with the student’s login that was provided to you by the school. It will be the responsibility of each parent/guardian to distribute (or not distribute) this login as they see fit.
Can I receive my child's grades by email?
At this time, Pearson PowerSchool does not provide standards based scoring by email as their email notifications are setup to report final grades/percentages only. Since CCSD93 is using standards grades scores, the email notification option is not available until Pearson PowerSchool makes changes.
