The following letter was emailed to parents of students in grades 5-12 on Friday, September 16, 2022.
Over the summer the East Greenbush CSD upgraded its version of PowerSchool, our student information system, and changed websites. Parents of students in grades 5-12 can begin accessing their PowerSchool accounts today. Parents of 4th grade students will receive login credentials at Open House. Parents of students in grades PK-3 do not have PowerSchool access.
Accessing PowerSchool Through the Website
For those accessing the Parent Portal via the website, the address has changed to https://egcsd.powerschool.com. Parent accounts and passwords have not changed.
Accessing PowerSchool Through the App
Access to the PowerSchool App has changed. Previously we were able to use a District Code to connect to the East Greenbush CSD Parent Portal, but with the change in site, parents will have to connect to the new server. Please follow the directions below.
- 1. If you do not have the App installed, you can download it from the Apple Store. (These directions are for Apple devices, other devices should be similar.)
- 2. Click on the App to open it. If this is the first time you are using the App or you just installed it, jump to step 4.
- 3. If you previously had the old app on this device, follow these steps to sign out:
- 3a. Click on the “More” icon in the lower right corner
- 3b. Next select “Account”
- 3c. Click on “Sign Out” in the upper right corner (this will close the app)
- 3d. Click on the App to reopen it
- 3e. On the “Sign In” screen, click on “District Code” in the upper left corner
- 4. On the District Code screen, click on the link “Where’s My District Code”
- 5. Select “Enter Server Address”
- 6. Enter the District PowerSchool Address: egcsd.powerschool.com
- 7. A question will pop-up asking “Is your school district in Canada?” please answer “No”
- 8. You are now linked to the our new server and you can enter your username and password.
Note: Students can also use the PowerSchool app by using their student number and computer password for their credentials.
If you have any problems, please email Portal Help at: firstname.lastname@example.org
