PowerSchool - Parent Portal

The Apollo-Ridge School District is pleased to announce that all Schools in our district will allow parents access to a new Internet based site called the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

The new site is a convenient home-to-school collaboration tool that allows parents to enhance their involvement by keeping track of their children's academic progress on-line via an easy-to-use web site customized for the Apollo-Ridge School District.

Parents may visit the password-protected site to view school program announcements as well as their student's schedules, grades, discipline issues, assignments, daily and period attendance, course history, and demographic data.

How Do I Access The Site?

Students and Parents will receive their own log-in Id and password by requesting access through each building's guidance department.

For security reasons, we can not give this information out on the phone. We can mail it to you, or you can come by in person to your child's school or the district office with proper ID.

Once you have your log-in information you can visit the site at: http://arsd.powerschool.com 

Below you will find a user guide designed for parents as well as a video tutorial to guide you through the new web site.  Some features described in the tutorials will be implemented at a later date while others like the Lunch Balance link will not be utilized by the Apollo-Ridge School District due to compatibility issues with existing systems.

The video requires QuickTime  and the document requires Adobe Acorbat .
