District PowerSchool Public Portal Acceptable Use Policy

PowerSchool Acceptable Use Policy

Access to your child’s grades and attendance through PowerSchool is being provided to you as another form of communication with teachers and administrators. More importantly, it is to help all of us in our efforts to support your child’s education. Please read these guidelines carefully before logging into the system.

Please read the following Acceptable Use Guidelines

  1. Username and passwords are to be kept confidential—the district accepts no responsibility in the event the username and password is shared, given, stolen, or in any other way, becomes the possession of a person other than the parent/guardian or student.
  2. Only one access code and password will be issued per student. It is your responsibility to determine which parent(s)/guardian(s) will be able to access the student’s records.
  3. All technical concerns about PowerSchool should be addressed to helpdesk@foxborough.k12.ma.us
    • The school district does not provide technical support for your home/work computer system.
    • Users must realize that email and other communications via the Internet are not guaranteed to be private.
  4. The Public Portal can be monitored. The Parent Access Log reports on the date of login, time accessed, and duration of login (in minutes).
  5. You must adhere to the following protocol in the order listed for concerns regarding your child’s grades:
    • Speak with your child
    • Have your child talk to their teacher for clarification.
    • Check teacher’s grading policy posted on his/her course page.
    • Parent/guardian may send ONE email or call the teacher and expect a response by the end of the following school day.
    • Parent/guardian may request a team meeting through the Guidance Department.
    • After all of the above, a parent may contact school administration by phone or by email.
  6. Even though you will be able to check grades 24 hours a day / 7 days a week, teachers generally post their grades within approximately 14 days of the date the assignment is due. Some assignments take much longer to grade.

    Please be patient and do not contact teachers requesting a grade sooner than what is outlined above.
  7. Final Quarter grades will be posted on the day Report Cards are sent home.
  8. Attendance concerns should be addressed by calling your child's school office: Ahern (508) 543-1610 or the Foxborough High School (508) 543-1616.
