• Parents,

    NACS is pleased to provide online access to your student's records, including grades and attendance, emergency notifications, and fall online registration. Access to these services is via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. There are two levels of access to the portal - one for students and another for parents. Only the parent account will have access to the notification and registration areas.

    To Create a New Parent Account:
    1. You will need the Parent Access ID and Password for your child.  These codes are printed at the bottom of the middle school or high school card and in the letter included with the elementary report card.  Codes will also be available at the schools during the onsite registration dates.

    2. Go to the NACS PowerSchool site at https://powerschool.nacs.k12.in.us/

    3. Click the Create Account tab then the Create Account button.

    4. The username and password you create here will be your login for PowerSchool.  Enter your name and email address, and choose a Username and Password. Use only letters and numbers, and no other symbols.

    5. In the Link Students to Account section, enter the details for the student: legal name, Parent Access ID and Password, and your relationship to the child. If you have more than one child at NACS, there will be separate Access ID/Passwords for each child. Be sure to enter the child’s legal name, and enter the ID and Password exactly as shown on your paperwork.  Both are case-sensitive.

    6. Click Enter to submit your form. If there are no errors, the Login screen appears.

    7. Enter the Username and Password you just created to access the site.

    To Add a Child to an Existing Parent Account:

    1. You will need the Parent Access ID and Password for the additional child.  These codes are provided by the school, often on middle and high school report cards, or in a letter sent from the elementary school.  Codes will also be available at the schools during the onsite registration dates.
    2. Go to the NACS PowerSchool site at https://powerschool.nacs.k12.in.us/
    3. Enter your parent account username and password and click Sign In. The information for your currently link child will appear.
    4. On the Navigation menu to the left, click the Account Preferences link near the bottom.
    5. Click the Students tab (next to the Profile tab).
    6. Click the Add button on the right side of that tab.
    7. Enter the details for the additional student: legal name, Parent Access ID and Password, and your relationship to the child. Click OK.
    8. The dark title bar at the top, just below the PowerSchool logo, will list each child on your account. Click the name to switch between them.

     

    To Setup SchoolMessenger Contacts:

    SchoolMessenger pulls the email addresses and phone numbers for the parent/guardian contacts recorded in PowerSchool.  These will be used for email and voice notifications only.  To review these entries and to enter a cell number to receive text notifications, use the following directions.

    1. Sign in to PowerSchool with your parent username and password.

    2. Click the Contact Manager icon toward the bottom of the navigation pane on the left side of the screen. Contact Manager Icon

    3. Click the Contacts tab to see the list of students.

    4. Click the Edit link at the right of each child’s line to see the stored information.

    5. By default, the first phone and email contact are checked for receiving emergency notices sent during non-school hours.  All contacts will be notified of a school hours emergency.  Disregard the boxes for Attendance, General, and Survey notices, as NACS will not use SchoolMessenger for these types of messages.  If the phone numbers and email addresses listed here are incorrect, the fall online registration process will provide an opportunity for an update.  After the start of school, contact the school office to make corrections.

    6. To receive a text message in the event of an emergency, including school delays or closings, enter up to four cell phone numbers.  Include the area code with the number.  Check the boxes to indicate the type of notification you want to receive via text.

    7. Click the Save button at the bottom, then the Logout link in the upper right.

     

    To Access Online Registration: 

    Online registration provides access to the registration information that is reviewed each fall.  Access to the online portion opens about a week before onsite registration.  It is suggested that the online portion be completed in advance, but if necessary, computers will be available in the schools to complete the entries during onsite registration hours.  The Student Registration link will be on the left side menu in the PowerSchool parent portal.  The pages will present information currently on file and allow parents to confirm or update the details there.  Links will also be provided for making deposits to the lunch account, signing up for the Device Protection Plan for the student laptops or Chromebooks, and for paying textbook rental fees as those become available.


    For questions about access codes or about the contents of the PowerSchool and related pages, please contact the school office.  For questions about accessing the website or PowerSchool, contact the NACS Webmaster at webmaster@nacs.k12.in.us .
