Technology Checklist

PowerSchool

In order to see current and upcoming assignments and to check your grades, you will need to access PowerSchool. The Technology Checklist you received in the mail has your username and password on it. Returning students, your login information is the same as last year. Please keep that information somewhere safe, as you will need it repeatedly throughout the school year.

Your parents will access PowerSchool using the same address but will need to use their own username and password, which is included in the July mailing.

Most will require you to access them daily, while others might use it less frequently. Handouts, class notes, links to study guides or websites, practice quizzes, surveys, and assignment submissions are all part of Rockspace.
