Guidelines for Usage



All teachers will utilize PowerSchool to record daily attendance and to record students' grades for assignments in a timely manner.


Parents of K-2 students should anticipate that assignments are formative and ongoing, and therefore will not be recorded in the PowerSchool gradebook and not accessible through the parent portal.


For grades 3-12, recording of grades for graded assignments should follow the proposed window:


  • Daily homework, classwork and short quizzes (less than 20 questions for example) should be posted in the Powerschool gradebook within 5 school days.
  • Tests and longer quizzes should be posted in the PowerSchool gradebook within 7 school days.
  • Projects and tests or assignments including essay/ research responses should be posted in the PowerSchool gradebook within 10 school days.


Entry of grades and daily attendance may be delayed if a substitute teacher is necessary.
