As we welcome students, parents/guardians, and families for the 2022-23 school year, we are providing many of our communications electronically. Many of our systems rely on - and can be accessed through - the PowerSchool Public Portal. The PowerSchool Public Portal provides families a convenient way to access student information and to make online updates.
If you already have a PowerSchool Public Portal account, you DO NOT need a new one. All student, parent/ guardian, and family information entered last year will be moved forward. BEGINNING MONDAY, AUGUST 29 you can review and update the information (if needed) in the Annual Student Update.
Those who are NEW to St. Louis Park Public Schools, and returning families who have not created an account previously will receive a letter with instructions and access information the week of August 22nd.
When you have your student’s information, you can go directly to the PowerSchool Public Portal at slpschools.powerschool.com to create an account.
If you created an account and forgot the username or password you chose, click the Forgot Username or Password link found on the PowerSchool Public Portal sign in screen. If you do not receive a reset email or need assistance please contact the Middle School at 952-928-6300.
