Frequently Asked Questions
PSPP vs. Mid-Term and Report Cards?
PSPP does not replace Mid Term Reports or Report Cards
Where can I get answers to questions about my child’s
grades?
You can speak with your child first, then contact the teacher or your school
How quickly will grades be entered into PowerSchool?
Grades will be entered into PSPP in a “timely manner”. Parents should not
expect that a test or major assignment will be graded and entered the same day
it is completed. Please be patient.
What if I forget my login or password?
If you forget your login, contact the school. If you forget your password use
the “forgot your password” link on the PSPP log-in page
