PowerSchool Parent Portal Registration

Jordan-Matthews High School is happy to announce that parents can begin registering for the PowerSchool Parent Portal today.  The PowerSchool Parent Portal is a website that will allow parents to see their student's grades as they are updated by teachers.

Parents are asked to complete a parent verification process before accessing their student's grade and schedule information via the Parent Portal.  This is a one-time process and need only be completed in subsequent years if families enroll new students within Chatham County Schools.  The parent verification process helps to ensure the safety and security of all student grade and class schedule information as required by federal law.  

The parent verification process requires three steps:

  1. Parents are invited to download, and complete, the parent verification form from the Chatham County Schools homepage located at: http://www.chatham.k12.nc.us/.  This form is also available from our school's front office if you do not have access to a printer or the Internet.
  2. Parents are then asked to present a separate completed form at each school where families have students attending a Chatham County School.
  3. Parents will need to present some form of photo identification at each school to ensure the safety and security of student information.  For parents who are unwilling, or unable, to provide photo identification they may seek a public notary of their choice to notarize the verification form.

Information will be provided so that parents can go online to activate their PowerSchool Parent Portal account, once the parent verification process has been completed.

Parents are also welcome to attend Jordan-Matthews High School on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 6:30pm until 8pm to complete this process.  This is a great opportunity to complete the parent verification process and all schools that feed Jordan-Matthews High School will be present.  Parents who opt to have their verification notarized need to bring their notarized form with them to the event.  

We look forward to your participation in the PowerSchool Parent Portal!
