Note: the instructions on this paper are for Parents/Guardians ONLY, students will access PowerSchool as they did in the past, we will help them get logged on during the first few weeks of school.
With the new release of PowerSchool, we have implemented "Single Sign-On" which lets you as parents/guardians see ALL of your students with one login. You may also choose other individuals to grant access to your student’s grade and attendance.
Creating a Parent Account to access PowerSchool Step-through:
1. Submit a ticket to the MCA Help Desk (http://helpdesk.ma-kc.org) for the IT group
(Submitting a ticket is available in the upper right hand corner of this page!)
Include your name, the child name and grade, and a cell phone number. We will respond back to the HelpDesk Ticket with the child access ID and will send the access password to the cell phone.
2. Access the PowerSchool Parent Access
Browse to https://ma-kc.powerschool.com in your browser address bar to open the access page directly.
3. At the Student and Parent Sign Page
Click CREATE ACCOUNT tab then the CREATE ACCOUNT button.
4. At the Create Parent/Guardian Account Screen
Type in YOUR name, MCA provided Office 365 Email Account for your email AND username. Read carefully the section on creating your user password.
If you want another person to have access to the student, you can have them create an account with their own email and user name and provide them with the student access codes.
5. Enter the student name you want to add
a. Access ID for the student (from HelpDesk ticket response)
b. Password for the student (from the cell phone response)
c. Designate the relationship to the student.
Select "Enter" – If errors are listed, please correct them. You will receive a confirmation screen once you have entered data correctly. If you have any missing/incorrect information the system will require you to fix the issue.
Note: Your parent Password and student Access Password will have to be re-entered if you make a mistake.
6. If all ok, the system will return you to the Parent Logon Screen
Enter the user name and password you just created above - - you should be logged in and see your student’s names on tabs at the top of the screen.
