Power School Portal

Arlington Public Schools utilizes PowerSchool as its secure web-based student information system.

The system provides teachers and administrators real-time access to course assignments, classroom rosters, seating plans, student attendance and grading.

The system also provides parents and students access to grades, assignments, attendance records and more.

In order to access the portal, an Access ID and password are required. These are sent via regular mail during the first weeks of school to all families. If you have displaced contact Caryn Gillis in the main office.

From the portal parents can also change demographics information (names, address, phone number, etc.) for their child: it is very important for this information to be up-to-date since it is used by APS for contacting parents/guardians in emergency situations.

Update Your Student Demographic Information

In an effort to improve communications between our schools and parents, the Arlington Public Schools Administration invites you to review and update your student's information. This will ensure that we have the most accurate demographic, health and emergency contact information for every student.


Please note: some updates will require you to upload supporting documents.

You will use the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the Student Update.


If this is your first time logging into the Parent Portal, be sure to have your Parent Portal Access Letter nearby as you will need those credentials to create your account. If you need a Parent Portal Access Letter, please contact your student's school.



How do I get started?

Visit https://aps.powerschool.com and enter your username and password to access the Parent Portal. From the Parent  Portal:


  1. Select the student you wish to review/update along the top

  2. Select the “Returning Student Update” icon on the left side

  3. Agree to the terms and conditions

  4. Click Begin Forms


I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

If you aren’t able to retrieve your login credentials using the “Forgot Username or Password?” link on the Sign In page, please contact your student's school for assistance logging in to the Parent Portal.


Do I have to answer all the questions?

Questions marked with a red asterisk (*) are required.


What if I make a mistake?

If you would like to make a change prior to submitting the form, you can either navigate back to the page using the “< Prev” and “Next >” buttons or if you are on the Review page click on the underlined field.  If you have already submitted the form you will need to contact your student’s school so they can make the changes for you.


I’ve completed the form, now what?

Once you have finished entering your information click “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.


What if I have more than one student in the district? Do I need to do this for each child?

Yes you will need to provide information that is specific to each child.  We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then start another. This will allow you to “snap” (or share) selected family information, which saves you time.


Help! I’m on the form and I’m having technical difficulties.

For technical support, visit infosnap.zendesk.com or click “Contact Us” from any form page.

Thank you for taking the time to update your student information!
