The Ministry of Education is pleased to announce the implementation of Powerschool.
The Powerschool Parent Portal is a powerful, easy-to-use, secure communication tool connecting teachers, parents and students through the Ministry of Education's Powerschool website. Using Pearson’s PowerSchool student information system, the Parent Portal allows collaboration to improve student achievement. Up-to-date, online access to grades, attendance and assignments makes it easier for parents, teachers and students to accurately monitory, identify and accelerate student progress.
The video below will show you how to setup your Parent account and access your student grades. The Ministry of Education's Powerschool address is https://bdamoed.powerschool.com .
Corresponding With Teachers
When a concern arises about attendance or a grade that appears in PowerSchool we ask that you follow these steps:
- Talk with your child first. Ask them about their grade(s) or attendance before contacting the school.
- Check to see if there is an assignment description. In the Class Score Detail page if the assignment is listed in blue, you can click on the link for more detailed information. This may help to clarify what was involved or expected for a particular assignment.
- Check the date of the assignment. An assignment handed in late may receive deductions from its score.
- Realizing that no system is perfect, if a discrepancy is found please send one email to the attention of the teacher. We are all working together to achieve the highest level of consistency and accuracy possible. Please be patient as we continue with developing this program to be the best it can be.
If you are using an email client application (i.e. Outlook, Entourage, etc) clicking on one of the teacher names under the Course title will allow you to send an email directly to the teacher. Please do not modify the subject line that is automatically entered onto the mail message. The subject line will help ensure that the message is identified as a parent contact to our staff within our email system.
If you are using a web-based email such as Yahoo or Hotmail, note the email address when you move your mouse over the name and send email through your web email. Depending on which web browser you are using it may appear in the lower left corner of the window when you hover your mouse over the teacher's name.
The Login page allows authorized users to access the web pages containing their student's information. The username and password must be entered exactly as provided to you. Each username and password is unique to each student.
Students and parents/guardians may access the system by going to: https://bdamoed.powerschool.com
The blue 'Having trouble signing in?' link on the login page will bring you to this FAQ.
There will be an additional option to 'Create an Account' which will allow parents to make an account that allows them to access any and all their children under one account.
PowerSchool Mobile Apps
