PowerSchool Parent Portal Directions

GHS PowerSchool Student/Parent Portal Access

We know you are looking forward to partnering with your child’s school through the parent portal.

You should have received a letter from your child’s school containing an ACCESS ID and ACCESS PASSWORD.

Open your web browser and go to https://powerschool.rcstn.net/public/ – Note: clicking the link will open the parent portal in a new window/tab so you may keep these instructions open.


You will see the login screen as seen below:

Click on the “Create Account” tab as you see circled in the image to the right.  After clicking this tab, you will see a blue “Create Account” button, click this button.

The next screen will allow you to setup your account and choose the children which should be associated with your login.  You will need the ACCESS ID and ACCESS PASSWORD for each child you wish to add.

Fill in your name and the email address to which you wish to have parent notifications sent.

Enter your desired username in the box indicated.

Enter what you wish  your password to be.  Notice the password strenth meter that appears when you begin entering a password.  You should choose a strong password (one that contains letters, number, and special characters).

In the “Link Students to Account” section, enter the Student Name, ACCESS ID, and ACCESS PASSWORD EXACTLY as they appear on the letter you received from school.  Also choose YOUR relationship to the child.  You can enter up to seven children.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the blue “Enter” button when complete.

IMPORTANT: The Access ID and Access password are on the letter titled “Parent Access ID and Password”. It is NOT the information sent for students to be able to access their grades.


If the username you requested is already in use, you can choose one of the three alternative usernames suggested by Power School.

Don’t forget to re-enter your password as well as the ACCESS ID password for the student as well.

When complete, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the blue “Enter” button once again.

When successful, you will be returned to the Power School Parent Portal Login Screen.  There, you will enter the username and password that YOU created to access your child’s information.

When you have successfully linked your children to your account you can dispose of the ACCESS ID and PASSWORD letter used to link your children to your account.


If you have any issues, please contact your child’s school for assistance.
