PowerSchool Parent Portal
Student Information System
PowerSchool logo
PowerSchool is our Student Information System (SIS). This is the foundation for many of our other programs and services, as they will pull student and parent information directly from PowerSchool. The PowerSchool Parent Portal allows you to access your child's school information. In particular, you will be able to:
  • Check your child's grades at any time throughout the school year;
  • Monitor your child's attendance; 
  • View your child's demographic information; and
  • Register for the upcoming school year.
 
Accessing the PowerSchool Parent Portal
APP: Download the PowerSchool Parent Portal mobile app on Google Play or from the Apple App Store.
WEB: Access the web-based version of the PowerSchool Parent Portal here.
 
Logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal
Parents and guardians of PTS students will need to create an account to access the PowerSchool Parent Portal. You will need the codes that have been generated specifically for you and your student in order to create your account. Please contact your child's school to obtain your unique code. Once you have the codes, visit http://pts.powerschool.com to create your account. You will then be able to add your children to your account. Parent and student codes will be automatically sent to kindergarten families shortly after the beginning of the school year.
 
For more information on Powerschool or for help with using the PowerSchool Parent Portal, visit the PowerSchool Parent Portal page on our website.

  1. In the "user name" field, type in your child's student ID number. This can be found in the PowerSchool Parent Portal in the Demographics tab. (You must use the web version. The PowerSchool app does not list the ID number.)
  2. If this is your first time logging into Versatrans E-Link or My Stop, in the "password" field you will type in your child's birthdate as MMDDYYYY. You will be prompted to change your password. Please enter a new password and write it down for future reference.
