To be able to access the information offered by PowerSchool LSR7, as a parent or a guardian of the student, you will have to log in to the portal.

Logging in to the portal requires you to enter the login information that is given by the school when you children enroll in the district. The login information that is mentioned before consists of the username and password. A username/password can be used for one student or child. It means if you have two or more who are currently in the schools under the school district, there is no way for you to use the same username/password for all your children and you have to get one for each of your children.
If you do not have an account, then you will have to make one first. The first step to create an account is to go to https://powerschool.lsr7.org/public.home.html. Then, click on the Create Account tab and then the Create Account button.
The first section is Create Parent Account and this one requires you to enter several information such as your first and last name, the email address, a unique username, and the password that will be used to login to the portal. The username should be simple so that it will be easy to be remembered. It also should be the combination of letters and numbers. Remember to not include space in the username. As for the password, it should be at least consisted of 6 characters.
Link Students to Account is the second one. This one requires you to provide the information such as the name of the student, access Id, access password, and your relationship to the student. When everything is done, do not forget to press the Entre button to save the information that you just input. Take note to pay more attention to the password as it is case sensitive. Make sure to enter everything well to prevent from getting an error. If there is an error, shortly after saving your information, the error message will be shown notifying that there is a piece of information is missing or incorrect. In this case, you will have to check the things that you entered and add the missing or change the incorrect one.
It is actually possible for you to include more than one student if it is the case. However, the number is limited to seven. Each student needs one account, meaning you will have to make more than one account if you have more than one child who is currently studying in the school under the school district.
After logging in to PowerSchool LSR7, the students and parents or guardians will be presented with several options across the top of the page. By default, the one that will be shown on the front page is the Grades and Attendance. On this page, it will be shown the real time view of the last week’s and this week’s attendance by period. Besides, the total absences for the current semester will also be shown by period. If you are curious about the dates of the absent, it is fortunately able to be clicked. On the same section, you can view the cumulative grade for each course in which the student is currently enrolled. Getting to know about the grades is important for the parents and the students so that they can understand the thing that needs to pay attention the most to.
