PowerSchool allows parents/guardians to access vital information about their children quickly and accurately. Below are some frequently asked questions and their answers. If you have other questions, please reach out to the Enrollment Department, and our staff would be happy to help you.

Each year, our schools make a letter available to new families listing the username and password for each child that can be picked up at the open house. We also set up an account for every student that enters our school system. If for some reason you did not receive this letter or are recently new to the district, you may request an account by going to your child’s school. We encourage all parents/guardians to request an Access ID and Password for each child, create an account, and use it regularly to check on your child’s progress.

Note: To protect your student’s information and Waukee Community School District, it is our policy that no usernames or passwords will be given over the phone. If you need your username and password to access PowerSchool, it can be provided to families in any of the ways listed below:

    • Sent to the primary email address listed on file.
    • Mailed to the physical mailing address listed on file.
    • Picked up at your child’s school building or the Waukee District Office.
      • You will need to provide an ID in order to receive this in person.

You will need to visit your child’s school and request your password be reset, or use the “Having Trouble Signing In” link on the Portal Home Page. Please bring photo identification with you for security purposes.

Make sure you are connected to the Internet. (For help with connecting to the Internet contact your Internet Service Provider)
