PowerParent Instructions
Page Updated: August 17, 2013
Logging into and using PowerSchool: Parent Access
  1. Go to http://psnlsd.cliu.org/public/ or click on the PowerParent link provided in the header above.
  2. At the login page, enter the username and password that you have setup through the single sign-on setup process. If this is the first time you are coming here since August 2011 you must sign up for a single sign-on account.
  3. To sign up for a single sign-on, click "create account" at the bottom of the page.
  4. Fill in your personal information, provide a username of your choice (do not use an email address for your username), a password of your choice and your email address.
  5. Fill in your child/children's name. Enter the access ID and password provided in a letter to you by your child's school.
    • Be sure to verify that you are using the correct characters since there may be O’s and 0’s in the password.
    • The password is case sensistive so make sure you enter the password as typed in capital letters.
    • You will need to add each child individually to your new account during the setup process or in the software after you have logged in.
  6. Choose your relationship to the child.
  7. Click on the submit button. You should see a account created successfully message at the end with the login boxes. You can now use the login information that you have just setup for your student and will no longer use the access ID and password provided by the school unless you need to setup another single sign-on account.
  8. Once you are in the PowerSchool software you will see each child you have added during the sign up process. You may get further assistance by clicking on the question mark in the upper right hand corner of the page.
  9. Be sure to use the logout button in the upper right hand corner when you are finished using the software as this clears your session on the server and helps secure the information provided.
