Smithtown PowerSchool Parent Portal

The PowerSchool Parent Portal is a web-based, home-to-school communication tool gives parents/guardians of students in grades K-12 and students in grades 6-12 real-time access to student schedules, attendance information, academic class grades, assessment information, teacher comments and school bulletins.  Parents/Guardians may also update contact information for our automated messaging systems as well as complete any student specific surveys.

Parent assessment reports for NWEA and STAR assessments as well as New York State Grade 3-8 NYS assessment reports are also found on the Parent Portal.  High School students will also have access to unofficial transcripts.

Students in Grades 6-12 also have access to the PowerSchool Parent Portal using their own Smithtown CSD username and password.
