Information for Parent/Guardians
Parents and Guardians have the ability to log in and check on their child's attendance, grades, and assignments (homework). The system used depends on the type of information they are looking for and the student's grade level. Here is a quick rundown of each system and what it provides for parents/guardians:
PowerSchool Parent access is the best place for parents to start, by clicking the PowerSchool logo on the Fargo Schools website menu bar. In PowerSchool Parent, you can:
- Review and submit annual school forms for your child.
- Check attendance.
- Review grades, report cards, and progress reports.
- View documents associated with your child's school record
