PowerSchool Access Guide
For the student account, the username is the student’s 10-digit GTID # and the password is the last 4 digits of their social security number. A student’s GTID # can be found on the inside cover of their agenda/handbook.
Parents may also log on using the same information given above. However, if you’d like to create a customized parent account with more functions, click on the “Create Account” tab. For the customized account, you will claim student(s) by using the student’s 10-digit GTID # followed by a lowercase “p” as the username. The password will still be the last 4 digits of their social security number.
With a customized account, you may create the username and password of your choice; sign up for notifications (daily, weekly, or monthly) on your child’s grades as they’re updated by teachers; see student attendance and teacher comments; view Georgia LDS testing data; and easily contact your child’s teachers.
