Before you begin, here are some basic facts about the PowerSchool Parent Portal:

  • The parent portal is intended to encourage positive communication between parents, students and teachers. Information on the PowerSchool Parent Portal does NOT replace report cards or official transcripts. For official grades or transcript information, please contact the Guidance Office at (607)588-7541, option 4.

  • Words in blue text are a link to more information.

  • Please be patient when waiting for grades to be submitted. It is not realistic to expect teachers to enter grades the same day an assignment is due.

  • The Gradebook instantly recalculates the overall grade based on every assignment entered. Please check the course and assignment notes or email your child's teacher if you have concerns.

  • Teachers use different grading techniques, policies, and codes. Please check with the teacher if you are unsure of the grading policy or need clarification on a code.

  • Some teachers use different "weights" for assignments depending on the type of assignment. Some teachers calculate grades by total points. How teachers weigh grades is their individual decision. To understand a specific grade calculation, please contact the individual teacher.

  • You can find teacher email addresses on the GCCS website under the Staff button:
