Parent PowerSchool Access
To set up a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will need their student’s parent access ID and password. We mail those home within the first 2 weeks of school. Parents can link all their students to one Parent Account, all you need is the parent access ID and password for each of your students. For instructions, see the Parent Single Sign-On Instruction Sheet.
If you lose, or didn’t receive, your Parent Account set-up instructions, contact the school. For security reasons, we will not give out account information by phone, fax, or email. Logins can be picked up in person or mailed to the home address we have on file. PowerSchool logins are reset every summer to protect your privacy.
With a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will have access to a special Email Notifications page where they can sign up for automatic progress reports. Because of this exclusive feature, it is highly recommended that parents keep their account ID and password confidential and not share it with their student. Students get their own ID and password when they pick up their laptop.
How to sign up for PowerSchool Email Notifications
Parent Canvas Access
Based on a change with the Canvas PowerSchool Integration process, we are changing how Parent Observer Accounts work in Park City School District. Parents will now create their own account and link to all of their PCSD students. Provided below is a list of information each parent will need to have on hand and links to the instructions on creating the account and linking the students.
- Your child’s Canvas login information (username and password)
- Quick access to your personal email account
- Use a computer to navigate to pcsd.instructure.com/login
- Follow the How Do I Sign Up for a Canvas Account as a Parent Guide
- Add another student (or two or three) by following the How do I link to another student as an observer Guide
- Review the Observer Guide for an overview of what to expect
Please note: PCSD Employees wishing to observe their students within PCSD should NOT use their @pcschools.us email address. They should use a personal email address.
