Parent Information

West Platte utilizes a student information system called PowerSchool to record your student's grades. One of the advantages of the system is the ability for parents and students to log onto a website or mobile app to monitor grades, attendance, etc. We encourage you to log on frequently to monitor your student's progress at school!

Below you will find information on how to create your PowerSchool account. Once you have created your parent account and linked your child(ren) to your account, you will be able to access all students with one single sign on.

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to Website:
  2. Click on the "Create Account" tab and click the Create Account button
  3. Fill in the requested information under the Parent Account Details section
  4. Next you will link your children to your account by typing in the Access ID and password you were mailed for registration for each child.
  5. Click the Enter button.
