  • I can't get the app to work.

    You MUST have already created a Parent Portal Account (Part 1) and connected a student(s) to your Parent Portal Account BEFORE you can configure your mobile account access.

    Make sure to use the district code JSWN when requested. Once you are at the login screen, use the same credentials that you used when intially creating your account.

    If your credentials are not working, please contact our PowerSchool Help Desk.
