To create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, start at the Park Ridge District Webpage, www.parkridgeschools.org. Look below the picture to find an icon for PowerSchool, click that to access the login screen. You can also use this link to go directly to the login screen, https://prnj.powerschool.com/public/. PowerSchool is accessible using any web browser. Once you access the login screen, select the Create Account tab and follow the prompts to create your parent account, filling in the necessary information. You will need your parent access information, which was supplied to you from your school in a parent letter.
As part of the account creation process, you create your own username and password. The access codes found in your parent letter are used for linking your students to your account, NOT for logging into PowerSchool.
