Schoolnet

Schoolnet provides a centralized solution for aligning student assessments, curriculum, and instruction where administrators, teachers, and parents are able to view summarized information for schools, classes and students, as well as detailed reporting and analysis. Using these tools can help administrators, teachers, and parents improve school performance and increase student achievement. When accessing Schoolnet, My Schoolnet is the main landing page, or portal, for logged-in Schoolnet users. It is designed to provide quick, one-click access to Schoolnet components.

Once Schoolnet is configured, the Schoolnet link appears in the PowerSchool Student and Parent portal. Using the link, users can launch Schoolnet from within PowerSchool while keeping their PowerSchool session active allowing them to work in both applications simultaneously. Additionally, if SAML inline authentication settings have been configured, users may sign directly in to Schoolnet without using the SSO link within PowerSchool.

How to Launch Schoolnet in the PowerSchool Student and Parent Portal

Use this procedure to launch Schoolnet in the PowerSchool Student and Parent portal.

Note: The Schoolnet link only appears if Schoolnet is enabled at the system, district, and school level, and you are signed in as a student.

  1. Sign in to the PowerSchool Student and Parent portal.
  2. On the start page, click Schoolnet in the navigation menu. Schoolnet launches the My Schoolnet page in a separate window (or tab depending on your browser setting).

    Note: The window that appears is not served by PowerSchool. It is rendered from a separate Schoolnet server. For detailed information, see the Schoolnet online help. If the window does not launch, contact your school's PowerSchool administrator.

    Note: If you are not actively working in the PowerSchool Student and Parent portal, your session may time out. If so, you need to sign in again.

  3. When you are finished working in Schoolnet, be sure to log out of Schoolnet. A confirmation page appears indicating you have been successfully logged out of Schoolnet.

    • If you are finished working in the PowerSchool Student and Parent portal, click Sign Out of PowerSchool to sign out of the PowerSchool Student and Parent portal.
    • If you would like to continue working in the PowerSchool Student and Parent portal, click Return to PowerSchool. The start page appears.

    Note: If on a multi-tenant environment, the PowerSchool Sign In page appears. If you would like to continue working in PowerSchool, sign in to PowerSchool.
