Back to School Technology Procedures

Hello!

Please read the following carefully, as this message contains important information regarding your child’s back to school technology procedures.

#1) PowerSchool Parent Portal Access 

Please be sure to check your parent/guardian username and password to PowerSchool.  If you do not yet have a parent/guardian PowerSchool account, you may visit our technology staff during your child’s orientation to setup an account.  

Parents/Guardians may access the Parent Portal by visiting https://ps.gcasd.org. Should you forget your username or password, please use the "Forgot Username or Password" link here: https://ps.gcasd.org/public/account_recovery_begin.html.


#2) SchoolMessenger Contact Preferences

Please verify your child’s contact preferences in SchoolMessenger.  Should you have multiple students attending GASD, consider verifying phone and e-mail information for each student.

To update SchoolMessenger contact preferences, logon to PowerSchool's Parent Portal and click on the SchoolMessenger icon, located on the left-hand side of the page.


#3) PowerSchool Registration “Returning Students Registration”

All students with a guardian e-mail address on file will receive e-mail notification from our PowerSchool Registration system for completing their “Returning Student Registration”.  This is our version of Back to School paperwork, but in an electronic format.

Please keep watch for this important e-mail from PowerSchool Registration containing directions on how to complete the digital paperwork.


#4) CareDox Enrollment

All students with a guardian e-mail address on file will receive notification from our CareDox health management system for completing their “Enrollment Form”.  

Please keep watch for this important e-mail from CareDox containing directions on how to complete the enrollment process.
