PowerSchool Parent Portal How-to for NEWTech Skill Center Families Only

  • To set up your Powerschool account, you need a copy of your Access ID and Access Password. These were sent to you via email (please check your junk/spam folder if you can't find it in your inbox). It has also been mailed via USPS to your home address.

    Students can access their PowerSchool account by entering their student ID# for their username and password.

    Quick Notes:

    1. ATTENTION Mead and Central Valley school district parents and students: The user ID and password for NEWTech is different from the user ID and password used to access Mead and Central Valley school districts' PowerSchool. The two programs do not communicate with each other; a separate user ID and password is required. Also: you will need to log in to PowerSchool through NEWTech’s website at connectwithnewtech.com
    2. Parents can each have their own individual account, or they may create an account to share.
      • If more than one parent is creating an account, they each will need the same ACCESS ID and ACCESSPASSWORD for the student(s) they wish to link.
    3. Parents are encouraged to NOT use their student’s account
      • The parent account allows you to link more than one student and set up email notifications for grades and attendance according to your preferences.
      • The NEWTech PowerSchool Parent and Student access letter has been mailed to the address on file.
      • The NEWTech PowerSchool Student access letter with their ID and Password was given to your student in class.
    4. PowerSchool App: there is an app available for mobile download. Our district code is:  KWMW
      • Please note: there are many different devices, operating systems, and service carriers when it comes to mobile apps. Each version may appear slightly different from one another. Due to these differences, we do not have the ability to provide technical support for this and recommend you talk to your service provider if you need assistance. Thank you!
