PowerSchool Parent Portal


AVS report cards will be emailed home. Parents MUST have a PS account to view their student(s)’ historical report cards. If your student does not have a parent PS account associated with them, you will be notified by BrightArrow that you need an account.

This page is to provide information on setting up and using the Parent Portal for PowerSchool. Please read this page BEFORE you set up your parent account or if you have difficulties accessing it.

To access the Parent Portal of AVS PowerSchool once you have an account created/configured:

Note: Do NOT use the PowerSchool App! The website link above is mobile friendly and is much preferred over the app.

To “Create an Account” you will need the Access ID and Access Password received from AVS for each child, an email address, a username (NOT an email address), and a password you create.  Note that the Access ID and Access PW are case sensitive. Once you create your account, each time you visit, you can log in using your Username and Password. Your student(s) also can log in to see assignments and grades using their own usernames and passwords.  Keep your user name and password secure.  Your parent login gives you additional access that your student’s login does not allow such as requesting parent reports.  You will be able use the same login to access all your students.

If you forgot your username / password click on “Having trouble logging in?” located in the login entry window under “Password” and then follow the directions to receive an email with your User Name and/or Password. Please check your spam folder if you do not receive the email within 10 minutes after requesting it. If you do not receive the email or no longer have access to that email account, please contact the Tech department.

To add a student to an existing PS account, please log in, click on Account Preferences, select the Students tab, and click Add. Enter the student name, Access ID, Access PW (both are case sensitive), and your relationship to the student (mother, father, etc.; the direction is from the student to you). Then click OK.

If you have an existing account but cannot access it, this is likely because you had student who is no longer enrolled at AVS. Please contact the Tech department or Office to add your current student to your account.
