  • attendance for the past two weeks or the whole term
  • teachers comments (*)

A. Aside from the resources found on this page, you can contact the main office of your child’s school with questions.

Q. Where do I get the Access ID and Password to add my child(ren) to my account?

A. Your child’s school should have provided you with a Guardian Web Account letter that contains your secure Access ID and Password.  If you have more than one child at a PUC school, you will need a letter for each child as the Access ID and Password are specific for each student.  Please reach out to your child’s school if you have not received this letter.

Q. I signed up to receive automatic notifications. How can I cancel or edit my settings?

A. If you no longer wish to receive automated notifications, or if you would like to edit your settings, such as your e-mail address, follow these steps.  Log in to your parent account and click on Email Notification from the left navigation menu.  From this page you can edit the notifications that are sent, the frequency of the notifications or your e-mail address.  To cancel notifications, then deselect all boxes and select Never for How Often you would like to receive notices.

Q. I have another child newly attending a PUC school, how can I add them to my parent account?

A. Review the Adding Students to an Existing Account document for instruction on adding another PUC student to your account.

Q. What if I forgot my login information?
  1. On the PowerSchool login page click on “Forgot Username or Password?” and then click on either the “Forgot Password?” or “Forgot Username?” tab and fill in the required information. The system will authenticate your information and then send secure login information to your e-mail address. Use this information to reset either your username or password.  (Note: You must reset your information promptly or else you will need to repeat the process).
Q. Do all teachers post grades to PowerSchool?

A. Milagro Charter School is the only PUC school that does not post grades to PS.  Teachers at all other PUC schools use PowerSchool to post grades.  Keep in mind that teachers assign and post grades to PowerSchool at different times. Some may give grades to their students’ every day and some may give far fewer grades during the term. This is up to each teacher/school and depends upon their grading system. If you see grades in PowerSchool for some teachers but not others, this is a normal function of the way teachers assign and post grades. As always you may contact teachers by e-mail or request a phone call or meeting at any time to discuss your child’s grades.

A. Yes.  All PUC schools use PowerSchool to take attendance.  If you have a question about your child’s attendance, please contact the school’s main office.
