PowerSchool Scheduled Maintenance

On Wednesday, November 25th, for the entire day, ND ITD will be upgrading the PowerSchool environment. During this time PowerSchool will not be available during this downtime window. Some of the enhancements for parents include:

  • New look and logo: all pages have been updated with a new color scheme and a new logo.
  • Issue with Updated Parent/Student App Resolved: If parents or students updated the PowerSchool App they were unable to connect to the Bismarck PowerSchool site. This is resolved with the upgrade.

PowerSchool Parent/Student App

PowerSchool has released an updated version of the Parent/Student app for Apple and Android devices that does not work with the version of PowerSchool Bismarck Public Schools is using. Parents and students should not update the app.
If users have done the update there is no way to go back as previous versions of the app are not available. They can however access the parent portal via the web browser on their phone or tablet.

Parent Single Sign-On

Parents and guardians can create their own PowerSchool username/password and view all children's information from one account. This account will remain the same from year to year to access their children's academic progress, attendance, and meal account information in PowerSchool. All parents will need to create a new login by entering an email address and choosing your own password.

Here's how to create a new account:
1. Go to
2. Click the "Create Account" button.
3. Enter your information at the top.
4. Link your students to the account by entering: student name, ID, and password in the bottom section. The Access ID and Password are the same ones you used before! If you don't remember them, call or email your school secretary.
5. Once the account has been created you can sign in to the parent portal using the username and password created and see all of your students!
