Powerschool Student Information System

Overview

In order to register a new student for the first time, check grades, or to fill out Back to School forms, parents must have a Powerschool parent login. Pender uses the Powerschool Student Information System to manage your child’s data.  The instructions below show how to: 

  1. Pre-registering (Students attending Pender Public Schools for the first time)
  2. Creating a parent Powerschool login account 
  3. Adding a new child to an existing account
  4. Logging into the Powerschool portal and completing  forms.
These steps are best done on a computer or Chromebook, but they can be done on a mobile phone through a web browser. The mobile Powerschool apps do not work for filling out forms. 

Part 1: Pre-registration - Students new to PPS only

If your student is not new to Pender Public Schools, please skip to 2a. Create an Account or 2b. Adding your Child to an Existing Account. If your child attended Preschool at PPS, you may also skip this step.

  1. Visit https://ecollect.accelaschool.com/pender and complete the form
  2. You will receive a confirmation email after submitting the form and then our office personnel will approve your Pre-registration.

You will receive another email with important information about logging into Powerschool. That email will come from powerschool@esu1.org. Please check your spam folder. It should come within 24 hours - usually within an hour.

Part 2a: Create Your Parent Powerschool Account

This is an important step that you will use throughout your child’s school journey! If you have previously created an account, skip this part and move to the next. If you have never registered for an account before, please do the following:

  1. Open the internet browser on your computer.
  2. Go to penderschools.powerschool.com
  3. Click on Create New User Tab.
  4. Fill in the information requested for your desired username and password.
  5. Enter your student's full name, Access ID and Password. These items can be found in an  email that you received after Pre-registration OR from the office in preparation for Kindergarten Round Up. If you think you have not received these via email, please call the office and they can provide it to you over the phone (402-385-3244).

Part 2b: Add a Child to Your Existing Parent Powerschool Account

  2. Click on Account Preferences
  3. Click on the Students tab.
  4. Click on Add in the upper right corner.
  5. Enter your student's full name, Access ID and Password. These items can be found in an email that you received after Pre-registration OR from the office in preparation for Kindergarten Round Up. If you think you have not received these via email, please call the office and they can provide it to you over the phone (402-385-3244).

Part 3: Logging into Powerschool and Completing Forms
