• Parent/Student Portal (PowerSchool)

    PowerSchool Logo

    Welcome to the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District Parent/Student Portal. From this site, parents/guardians of students in grades kindergarten through five are able to access their child’s attendance information and mid-year and end-of-year progress reports. Middle school and high school students and their parents/guardians are able to access current grades and information about student assignments, attendance, and scheduling.

    Access to the Parent/Student Portal provides parents the opportunity to be more informed about their child’s academic progress and other pertinent information.



    Parent Access to PowerSchool


    • If you are the parent/guardian of a WSSD student, please use the link below to access the Parent Portal.
    • WSSD has officially migrated from MMS (the District's previous Student Information System) to PowerSchool. 
    • Directions were emailed to parents from dclements@wssd.org on August 8, 2019 for how to create their PowerSchool account.  That email contained a specific ACCESS ID & ACCESS PASSWORD for each student.

    What Is the Parent/Student Portal (PSP)?
     
    The Parent/Student Portal allows parents/guardians of students in grades kindergarten through five to securely access their child’s attendance information and mid-year and end-of-year progress reports.  The Parent/Student Portal allows middle school and high school students and their parents to securely access and read student information, including individual student grades, teacher comments, future assignments, and missing assignments.

     

    Parent/Student Portal Security and Accountability 

    Parents/Guardians will create their own usernames and passwords.  User names and passwords are confidential and should not be shared with others. Upon verification that a Parent Student Portal username or password has been compromised, portal access through that account will be immediately disabled by the designated school personnel.

    The Parent/Student Portal service is not meant to replace direct communication between students, parents, teachers, and/or other school staff members. If a parent/guardian has questions about any of the information viewed via the portal, those questions should be discussed with the student and/or teacher.


    Technical Specifications 

    The Parent/Student Portal will run successfully on Internet browsers including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, or Firefox.


    How often will grades for middle school and high school students be posted?

    Grades will be updated on a regular basis.

    Please note that on some occasions, the final grade listed via the portal may, as a result of extenuating circumstances, be different from the final grade printed on the report card. The grade which appears on the printed report card is the official grade.
