Minooka #201 recently upgraded to PowerSchool for our student information system and gradebook.
Parents will need to create an account in PowerSchool to see their children’s grades and schedules. This is accomplished by having your child(ren)’s parent Access ID and Access Passwords. Each student has their own unique parent Access ID and Access Password. They will be distributed at the district’s “Find Your Way Day”, “Kindergarten Orientation”, and “Open House” nights via paper.

General PowerSchool FAQ:
How come I had to create two accounts?
The first account sets up the back-end foundation and the smartphone app, the second account sets up Unified Classroom and other enhancements. You’ll use your Unified Classsrom (second account, or the one made on the blue screen) for everything except installing the smartphone app. We recommend making both accounts the same email address & password for simplicity.
I would like to retrieve my other child’s access ID / password:
Go to the Parent Access ID or Access Password Website to retrieve that information.
After I link my account to my student(s), do I need this access ID or password?
No, this is only used once to create your account and link your students to that account.
I have a student enrolled at Minooka 201 AND another at Minooka 111. Can I use the same account username and password?
Sure! Just remember, the two districts are separated and not linked together.
What if I decide that my student’s other family members should have access?
It is your decision to share that unique access ID and password with the family member. Minooka CCSD #201 will not release that information to anyone else other than the custodial parent/guardians.
Do the access IDs and passwords change each year?
No. The access IDs and passwords are generated once and are unique across the district.
