Parent Searches in PowerSchool

Parent searches are much different than student and staff searches. This document provides details on searching for parents as well as instructions on running the Mass Comm Guardian Search when on minimal guardian data is provided for a search.

Student and staff searches allow users to search on any PowerSchool field.  However, there are only three parent fields to search against: first name, last name, and email.

  • Do not use operators in parent searches.
  • PowerSchool will search parent names or emails that begin with the text that you entered into each text box.
  • Enter text into any combination of the three fields and click the search button ().

Example: Entering M in first name and Sm in last name will yield both Matt Smith and Molly Smitt.. It will not return Tom Smith because the Tom only contains a M; it does not begin with a M.
