PowerSchool Parent Portal

 
What is PowerSchool?
The PowerSchool Parent Portal is a web-based home-to-school collaboration solution that allows parents to examine up-to-date information on their child's grades, attendance, homework assignments, and more-- all through a secure, easy-to-use online link to school records.  You may even choose to receive automatic e-mail alerts if your child is tardy or missing an assignment. 
What information does PowerSchool provide parents?
  • Student Information
  • Grades
  • Teachers' Remarks
  • Attendance/Tardiness
  • Discipline 
What is the easiest way to access PowerSchool?
 
If your child is a returning student of Burke County Schools, an email from [email protected] has been sent to the first parent/guardian listed in PowerSchool. This email will contain your student's unique verification passcode, called a "SnapCode."
 
If you are a parent/guardian of multiple returning students, you will receive a separate email for each student.
 
What should I do if I have a student returning to BCPS but never received a SnapCode?
 
First, check your junk or spam folder for an email from [email protected].
 
If you have not received the email, contact your student’s school to update your email and retrieve your SnapCode. Snapcodes will only be sent to a parent/guardian and only to the email address we have on file.

Along with many other helpful resources, PowerSchool can be accessed within the Burke County App!
A/B Honor Roll and Principal's List
 
The Burke County Board of Education recognizes and encourages academic scholarship through two academic honor rolls for students in Grades 3-8. Both are compiled at the close of each of the four marking (nine-weeks) periods. 
 
Principal's List 
Students who earn a grade of 90 or above in all classes AND a conduct grade of Satisfactory (S) or above in all classes for the grading period (nine weeks) will be recognized on the Principal's List. 
 
A/B Honor Roll 
Students who earn an overall average of 90 or above with no grade below 80 in any class AND a conduct grade of Satisfactory (S) or above in all classes for the grading period (nine weeks) will be recognized on the Honor Roll.
 
Note: General rounding rules are used when computing averages for Principal's List and Honor Roll (e.g. 89.6=90; 89.4=89).
 
To ensure consistency and timeliness of reporting, both Principal's List and A/B Honor Roll will be run from the district office rather than at individual schools. Principals will, however, have a window of opportunity (5 days) to verify their school lists before the final list is submitted to the local paper.
