PowerSchool Parent Portal

Parents,

Over the summer we upgraded PowerSchool. The Parent Portal for PowerSchool has had some major changes. The one that I believe is the biggest and will be the most popular is the Single Sign-on Parent Account. With the Single Sign-on Parent Account you will be able to:

  • Pick you own user name and password.
  • Recover your password if you forget it.
  • Access multiple student accounts with one parent account


First time users must create an account.

How to Create a Parent Account

Use this procedure to create a new parent account. In order to create an account, you must have the Confidential ID and Password for at least one student enrolled in school. When creating the account, you will need the Confidential ID and password for each student you want to associate to your parent account. If you do not have this information or have questions, contact your school.

Open your Web browser to your school's PowerSchool Parent Portal ps.nscougars.com/public or click the PowerSchool link on our website www.nscougars.com
