Introduction NIVA PowerSchool

Parent Portal is a tool integrated into the PowerSchool Student Information System (SIS) specifically developed for parents and students. In previous versions of the application there was a separate login and password for each student requiring a parent to login in multiple times if they had more than one student attending Wauconda schools. This year we are introducing the new Parent Single Sign-On feature of the application. Parent Single Sign-On offers a number of benefits, including:

  • access to multiple students with one login
  • a personalized account for each parent and guardian
  • the ability for parents/guardians to retrieve their own login information

To get started, you must create your PowerSchool account and attach students. Creating Your PowerSchool Parent Portal Account Before you can log in to PowerSchool Parent Portal, you will need to create your account and associate students to it. You should have received a letter from Niva with your students Access ID and Access Password. These values are needed to attach a student to your account.

NOTE: The Access ID and Access Password for your student should be protected. Only provide this information to individuals who need to monitor your student’s progress.



When your account is successfully created you will see this page. Use the username and password you entered in the previous step to login to the parent portal.
