KCSD Parent Portal to reopen Sept. 2

The Kershaw County School District will reopen its PowerSchool Parent Portal where parents can log in to view their students’ attendance and grade information next Tuesday, Sept. 2.

“Last year we averaged over 1,000 parents using our Parent Portal site a day,” said Kershaw County School District Superintendent Frank Morgan.  “This online system has made it very easy for parents to stay up-to-date on their students’ academic progress.”

Parent Portal can be accessed via any school website or the district’s website at http://www.kershaw.k12.sc.us/district/instruction/powerschool/parent_portal.htm.

Parents who used the system last school year will use their same sign in and password information this school year.  New parents or parents who did not use the system last school year can sign up at their children’s schools.

In addition to current averages in each class, the online system contains grades for individual assignments.  Parents can also e-mail teachers directly from the system.  Attendance for elementary and middle school students is recorded on a daily basis while high school students’ attendance is recorded for every class.
