PowerSchool Introduction

PowerSchool is the student information system used by Isle of Wight County Schools (IWCS). IWCS uses PowerSchool to develop class schedules, take attendance, store grades, produce transcripts, report cards, and more. Parents and guardians of students enrolled in Isle of Wight County Schools will now be able to view student progress through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

PowerSchool “brings together teachers, students, parents and administrators” in an easily used web-based data system. PowerSchool, and the parent portal, may be accessed from any location with Internet access. The application uses a secure link that encrypts the data to and from the end user and is very secure.

Only one account can be created for each child. Families with more than one child in the division will need to create separate accounts for each child. This measure is designed to ensure the security and confidentiality of each student's records.

This web page is designed to guide parents/guardians through accessing information available within PowerSchool. You will also find answers to many common questions regarding the PowerSchool system.

PowerSchool Parent Portal Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is the PowerSchool Parent Portal?

    1. The IWCS PowerSchool Parent Portal offers parents and guardians real-time access to your child's grades and attendance. After accessing the Parent Portal, you can also request information regarding grades and attendance to be sent to your e-mail address on a regular basis. The Parent Portal is an easy to use communications tool that will allow you to take a more active role in your child's education.
  2. Are my child's records available for others to see?

    1. No, a user ID and password are provided to allow access for only authorized users to the appropriate student records. We ask that you keep your user ID and password confidential.
  3. What should I do if I lost my user ID and password information?

    1. You will need to contact your child's school to obtain the information. To protect your student's information, it is our policy that no username or passwords are given over the phone.
  4. I did not receive a user ID or password for my child. Why?

    1. A letter was sent home with report cards for students in grades 3-12 in February 2009. Parents of students in grades K-2 will not receive user ID's and passwords at this time, because those grades do not use the gradebook feature available in PowerSchool. Only one user ID and password is created for each student. Parents with dual custody will need to use the same login information, and select multiple e-mail accounts to receive information.
  5. How often can we expect information to be updated on the Parent Portal?

    1. Attendance is reported daily. Unexcused absences will be updated when the attendance clerk has received the appropriate notice for the absence. Teachers will update grades on a regular basis, however certain factors may influence when certain grades appear. Essays and research papers may take longer to grade than a quiz or homework assignment. We urge parents and guardians to be patient as teachers do their best to return assignments and post grades as promptly as their schedule allows.
  6. Will I be able to see all my child's grades?

    1. The PowerSchool Parent Portal will provide you access to information on classes offered within Isle of Wight County Schools nine schools. Students enrolled at the New Directions Alternative Center, The Pruden Center, either Governor's Schools, or SECEP will not have grades for those classes available through PowerSchool.
