PowerSchool – Instructions for Parents

Trinity has chosen to utilize a feature in PowerSchool allowing parents to create a single sign-on that provides access to each son attending Trinity.  In order to create this new parent/guardian account, you must have the Access ID and Password for each student enrolled at Trinity.  The Access ID and Password are provided by Trinity and were distributed in the July mailing for each student.  The Access ID and Password are used to associate the student with you as the parent/guardian.  Your sons should access PowerSchool using their own username and password. They should not be accessing PowerSchool utilizing the parent/guardian access.  Please follow the steps below to create your PowerSchool account:
