Some of you may already know how to do this, but I have had several teachers ask me how to access PowerSchool both on their mobile devices and at home. Since leaving the classroom I have not had to face the beast that can be PowerSchool but I know how nice it is to be able to put grades in at home. So, thanks to Daniel Brown at Wade Hampton we have a solution. Follow the steps below whether you are at school or at home to access PowerSchool:
Accessing at School on Mobile Devices
1. I recommend that you restart your computer or device everyday.
2.Make sure that you are using the GCSD wifi not GCSDGuest.
3. Visit the GCSD Authenticate website at: https://gcsid.greenville.k12.sc.us/cb/ if you are using a personal (non-district issued) device. *Note: a district iPad should have the GCSD Authenticate icon on it already.
4. Enter your username and password and select a length of time (I always do the maximum-6 hrs.)
5. Click Log In.
6. Now access the Power Teacher website: https://powerschool.greenville.k12.sc.us/teachers/pw.html
Hi! My name is Allison Barton, a former elementary school teacher turned Technology Integration Specialist at Greenville High School in Greenville, South Carolina. I have been teaching for 11 years and have relied on technology during that time to excite, engage, and educate my students (both young and old). I also enjoy very much sharing my knowledge about technology with other teachers.
