Columbia School District


PowerSchool is the student information system that Columbia Public Schools uses to manage information such as grades, attendance, demographics, courses, etc. PowerSchool is web-based so information can easily, but safely, be shared with parents and students.

Parents of students in Grades PK8 have access to their child's attendance and demographic information. Parents and students in grades 58 also have access to student grades and assignments.
