Review & Update Student Information Now Review


Parents can now review, verify and update student information online instead of doing it via the paper forms that many D91 schools send home during spring registration or at the beginning of each school year. If you have a PowerSchool Unified Classroom account, you can easily review and update information using this link:  https://accounts.powerschool.com/u/welcome. (Use this form only if your student is currently enrolled in a District 91 School.) Updating student information is critical this year so D91 has the right contact information to send updates, assign Chromebooks and more. If you do not have a PowerSchool Account, contact your child’s school after Aug. 5 to set one up. Setting up a PowerSchool Unified Classroom account is important so parents can track class schedules, grades, absences, progress toward graduation, etc. Once you are in the Parent Account application and have clicked on the registration icon, you can change the language in the upper right-hand corner from English to Spanish if needed.

Grades Appeal Process Now Open ABC


High school students can now appeal to have Pass/P grades for third trimester classes completed during the spring 2020 school closure changed to letter grades. Students who want to make an appeal must have successfully completed the end-of-course assessment for the class and earned a P. They must also complete the officials appeals form. Appeals can be submitted over the summer, but they won’t be reviewed until school staff return in the fall. The deadline to file an appeal is Jan. 8, 2021, but we recommend seniors file their requests by Oct. 1, 2020 so they can be processed in time for fall early decisions, etc. We encourage students to talk to their parents, teachers, counselors and college admissions offices to determine whether changing a P to a letter grade will benefit them.
