Parent Portal in PowerSchool 

The PowerSchool Parent Portal gives parents and students access to on-line information including attendance, grades and detailed assignment descriptions, school bulletins and even personal messages from the teacher.

Everyone stays connected:  Students stay on top of assignments, parents are able to participate more fully in their student's progress and teachers can share information with parents and students.

The PowerSchool Parent Portal features a single sign-on to allow parents with multiple students in The Elyria Schools to access all of their children with one account. 

This feature requires users to request an account be set up at their child's school.
