• PowerSchool is 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 teachers and guidance counselors, if neccesary. 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 Johnston County Public Schools to easily manage a wealth of information online: grades, transcripts, report cards, assessments, and daily attendance.



  • How do I get started?


    Step One - Visit Your Child's School 

    Please visit your child's school in order to receive login information for PowerSchool Parent Portal.

    In order to receive login information 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 will be your child's username and password that will allow them to access information as well. Please give this information to your child.

  • How do I get started?


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

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


  • 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, or if your email address has changed, please contact your school's Student Information Data Manager.

    Thank you for your patience in this new process.
