We are developing plans for remote instruction should it become necessary to close our schools for an extended period of time. PPS uses Power School Learning as our platform for digital learning.
We encourage all parents to check to make sure they can access their child(ren)’s class websites. The website for Power School Learning is pps.powerschool.com
Many parents have already logged into the Parent Parent and Power School Learning. These instructions are only for parents who haven't set up accounts.
Access to teacher websites is a two-part process. First, To you must have your Parent Portal account set-up. (Most parents have done this. Information with how to set-up this account was sent in the beginning of the year.) f you haven't set up your account, you can contact your child’s guidance counselor for the access ID code and password.
If you have your Parent Portal account set-up, you can set up your parent Power School Learning account. If you need to reset your password for PowerSchool Learning, please reach out to the technology assistant at your school. The district is working on a plan to assist families who may not have access to computers or internet service at home.
