    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.

    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.
    For additional information please contact Charlene Covington.
