New Powerschool Single Sign-on Parent Portal Information

August 25, 2015

Our PowerSchool program has a new and exciting feature for parents that will make the access of information much more efficient.  PowerSchool single sign-on access was activated.  Student access will remain the same.  The information that follows will provide instructions on creating a single sign-on account. Single sign-on access allows you to have one PowerSchool parent portal account for all your school children in one place.

The website location is: https://pspalmerton.cliu.org/public/home.html

PowerSchool now has the capability of having:

                1. More than one student's information visible under your parent login

                2. More than one parent account for each student.

Parents/guardians must create a new account. Consequently, old parent/guardian accounts

will no longer work.
