WHAT IS POWERSCHOOL?

PowerSchool is the North Carolina's new student information system.  Since PowerSchool is web-based, this information can easily and safely be shared with parents through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.  
With PowerSchool, parents will be able to access vital information about their children quickly and accurately. They can see the results of tests and assignments as soon as they are recorded, enabling them to intervene quickly and communicate with guidance counselors and teachers, if necessary. Day in and day out, PowerSchool will help parents help their children achieve their potential. PowerSchool is a comprehensive student information system that will enable the Johnston County Schools District to easily manage a wealth of information online: grades, transcripts, report cards, assessments, and daily attendance. 

PARENTS/GUARDIANS - HOW DO I GET STARTED?

STEP ONE - Complete Online PowerSchool Parent Portal Application

In order to complete an online application, visit your child's school website. Select the PowerSchool Parent Portal Icon located in the top right corner of the homepage.  Fully complete and submit the online application form. You will receive a confirmation email, which will also prompt you to complete the remaining two steps.

If you have other children, you will need to complete this same process for each child on their school website.

The information will be processed at your child's school.

STEP TWO - Present Your Photo ID at Your Child's School

In order to receive your username and password for PowerSchool Parent Portal, you will need to report to your child's school and present a valid photo ID.

You will receive a letter at the school with an auto-generated username and password. At the bottom of your letter is your child's username and password for them to be able to access information as well. Please give this information to your child.

STEP THREE - Accessing PowerSchool Parent Portal

Use the following link to access PowerSchool Parent Portal: https://jcsnc.powerschool.com/public

STUDENTS - HOW DO I GET STARTED?

The student log in information is located at the bottom of the letter received by parents after presenting their photo ID at the school. Students should receive their log in information from their parents.  

*Please keep this information private and never share your login with anyone other than your parents/guardians.

ISSUES USING POWERSCHOOL?

We recognize that PowerSchool has some challenges. However, we are working hard to minimize problems for students, parents, teachers, and administrators.

Should you experience problems logging in or in accessing information, please try again at a later time until the system responds.   Because the system may be down or experiencing issues across the state, it may take repeated attempts to access PowerSchool Parent Portal.

If you are having issues with an invalid username and/or password, please contact your school's Student Information Data Manager.

Thank you for your patience in this new process.


POWERSCHOOL PARENT PORTAL & CONNECTEd PARENT PORTAL

PowerSchool Parent Portal is the new system for parents to be able to view grades and attendance.

Johnston County Schools also utilizes Blackboard ConnectEd Parent Portal to enable parents to decide how they receive information through the ConnectEd system.  This system sends critical messages to parents, including emergency alerts and important announcements.  

By accessing the ConnectEd Parent Portal, parents can decide what phone numbers receive the messages and if they want the messages via voice, text, and/or email.
