West Springfield Public Schools currently offers parents/guardians of all students with access to their student’s attendance and grades through PowerSchool.
The PowerSchool Parent Access System is intended to provide parents, students and teachers with a tool to communicate student performance. This Web-based application may be accessed from any place the parent/guardian can access the Internet. The application is a secure link that encrypts the data to and from the end user. In addition, a username and password are provided to allow access for only authorized users to the appropriate student record.
PowerSchool now provides single sign-on access to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. With single sign-on access parents/guardians can now have their own individual parent/guardian account, including user name and password. You may create your own account using the appropriate access credentials. Once your account is created, you can manage your account information, link any and all students to your account (for whom you have parental and legal rights to), and set email and notifications preferences for each student linked to your account. If you've forgotten your account login information, you can retrieve it by using auto-recovery.

I have an Exiting Parent Portal Account and want to add additional students to the account.
Before you can add additional students, you will need to obtain a Parent Portal letter from your student’s school containing student access information. Once you have all the Parent Portal letter you can log in to the Parent Portal and click “Account Preferences” (located on the menu bar at the left), then click the “Students” tab. Click the “Add+” button on the right side of the screen. A window will appear and you can enter the information for your student in this area (Student Name, Access ID, Access Password and Relationship) and click Submit. You will receive a Changes Saved message and under My Students, you will see the student you added. Repeat these steps to add any additional students to your PowerSchool Parent Portal Account.
I created an account, but now I cannot remember my Username and/or Password. How can I access my account?
On the sign in screen for the portal, click on the link “Having Trouble Signing In?” just below the password field. Then select either the Forgot Password or Forgot User Name tab on the next screen. Replacement User Name and/or Password information will be sent to you via the email address you provided when you set up the account for the first time.
What if the Access ID and Access Password for my student does not work to link my student to my account?
First, check to be sure that you have accurately entered the Access ID and Access Password exactly as indicated in your letter. If you are still unable to link your student, please call your student’s school for assistance.
Can more than one parent/guardian link their account to a student?
Yes; using the Access ID and Access Password, more than one parent/guardian can set up an account and link to the same student(s). However, each account must have a unique email address.
Can I disable/remove a student from my Parent Portal Account?
Yes, you would need to contact your student’s school and they would disable the access account for you.
Can other people see my son’s/daughter’s grades?
No. As long as you protect your username and password, others will not be able to see your child's information.
What happens to my access to the PowerSchool Parent Portal once my child leaves the district?
Access is automatically disabled if the student transfers or graduates.
