I want to be able to see my student’s schedule and grades, etc. They tell me I have to sign up for the AAPCS PowerSchool Parent Portal. How do I do this?

Do I need a printer?
Worksheet printing is not required; it is a choice. If your student has access to the Internet, some of the materials are interactive, thus no printer is needed. If your student does not have access to the Internet, please have them do their work on any paper that is available to them or in their journal, if they have one.
What do I do if I need a device/Chromebook for my student?
