PowerSchool "ParentPortal" for SY 2014-2015

The PowerSchool ParentPortal functionality will be available for SY 2014-15. ParentPortal is a tool that is integrated into the PowerSchool Student Information System. It provides parents of students in grades K-12 access to real-time information including attendance, grades, and school bulletins. Parents will be provided with logins to view their children's current grades and attendance. To obtain a private login, parents are required to stop by the CCHS/MS and/or McCleary school office in person.

To assist parents, a web-based tutorial is available for training purposes. On  the CCPS website, navigate to CCPS Schools, CCPS High School/Middle School OR McCleary Elementary School and find it above the ParentPortal link.
