The PowerSchool Student and Parent Portal is an online resource that students and parents can login to see attendance, schedules, and grades. KCSD uses both Canvas and Parent Portal for families to access daily assignments and grades.
Each Kershaw County School District student has a PowerSchool Student and Parent Portal account, and parents may request access to the portal from their student's school. Parents will need to provide a valid email address as well as their students' names to the school to set up portal access.
You can access the Student and Parent Portal online at https://kcsd.powerschool.com.
