PowerSchool Learning has Parent Accounts!

Riverside Unified School District has the PowerSchool Learning for all grades. PowerSchool Learning can be used by teachers and students for fully online classes as well as “hybrid” classes where teachers post information, assignments, assessments, discussion boards and more for students to complete either in class, in a lab environment, or at home depending on the needs of the student. 

One of the outstanding features of PowerSchool Learning is the availability of a Parent Account. This will allow parents to log in to PowerSchool Learning and see the information that their student’s teacher is providing including but not limited t class events, requests, assignments, homework, and student resources. 

The Parent accounts are created from information in the Aeries student information system and require that we have an email address on file to create the parent account. The parent login is the email address that we have in Aeries with the @ symbol replaced by a (period).

Example: John Smith’s email on file is so the PowerSchool Learning parent account username is

If you are unable to log in with these directions:

1. Please check with your student’s school to make sure that you have an email address on file and that it is correct. 
2. If you do not have an email address on file and would like to have a PowerSchool Learning account please talk to the school office to add one. It will take a couple of days for your PowerSchool Learning account to be created after your Aeries data is updated.

If you have any questions, please speak with your student’s teacher or email me at and include your name, your student(s)’ name(s), and the corresponding six digit student ID number.
