What kinds of things can volunteers do?

There’s no better way to support school communities than by sharing your special talents and knowledge with students, teachers and staff. The need for volunteers is unique to each school, but the need for volunteers and community partners is shared.

PowerSchool Parent/Student Portal.

A new feature is now available through Guilford County Schools that will allow you to access your child’s school information and connect with his or her teacher more easily.

PowerSchool Parent Portal is being offered as part of the state’s new student information system, called PowerSchool. It replaces Parent Assistant but offers many of the same features and more.

Parents have online, real-time access to information including academic grades for students in third grade and above, attendance and tardy records. As we fully integrate the PowerSchool system, we hope to also provide access to detailed classroom assignments, school bulletins and even personalized messages from your child’s teacher.

To use PowerSchool Parent Portal, go to http://pa.gcsnc.com to obtain your secure access Id and password, which should be used to create your account. Once that’s complete, you’ll receive an email instructing you how to create your account and then you will be able to manage your account information and link students to the account. You’ll need your child’s unique Student ID number, which is located on his or her report card.

More information is available through the link above or on the GCS website at www.gcsnc.com/parentportal.

If you have questions, please feel free to call the school at 336-370-8110.
