Parent PowerSchool Help

WHAT IS POWERSCHOOL?

Schools depend on a modern, easy-to-use solution to improve daily operations, improve administrative productivity, identify problem areas, and ensure funding through appropriate reporting.

PowerSchool is Nazareth's Student Information System (SIS) and it covers administrative needs, such as scheduling, attendance, state compliance reporting, data management, faculty management, emergency/medical and health management, registration, and more.  It is also helpful for students and parents in order to view student's schedule, attendance, transportation and much more.

The difference between PowerSchool and Schoology is that PowerSchool is a student information system (SIS) which contains the demographics of the student, parent info, emergency contact info, grades, bus schedules, etc.  Schoology is a learning management system (LMS).  The info that populates the classes, teachers and students into Schoology comes from PowerSchool.  However, the content on the teacher's Schoology pages are created by the teacher to share with students and parents.

Parents receive a PowerSchool Access ID and Access Password that is linked to their child.  Parents go to https://powerschool.nazarethasd.org/public/home.html and create an account using the PowerSchool Access ID and Password.  Multiple parents can use the same Access ID and Password in order to be connected to their child.  Creating your parent PowerSchool account only is done once.  Your account connects you to your child and will allow you to follow your child through their career at Nazareth.  The website the parents go to to log into PowerSchool is the same website students will go to in order to log into PowerSchool.

If you don't have or lost your PowerSchool Access ID and Access Password or need assistance with creating your PowerSchool parent account, please Email:

There are also step-by-step directions posted on the "How do I setup my Parent PowerSchool account?" page and a helpful video.
