2017-18 Course Selection Requests in PowerSchool Parent Portal

In late January and early February, Henrico County Public Schools will once again utilize the PowerSchool Parent Portal for students and their parents/guardians to make course selections for the Fall of 2017. Parents of rising 6th through 12th grade students will review core course recommendations made by teachers and make course selections by accessing the Class Registration icon in the portal. Both core and elective course selections can be made. Parents can use their computer, smart phone, or tablet to make these selections.  The portal also provides easy access to class grades, attendance, and student schedule information.

Parents of current 5th thru 11th grade students who do not already have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account will need to create one in order to access course requests for the 2017-2018 school year. Directions for creating a Parent Portal account can be accessed using the links provided below.

Course selections through the portal must be completed during the following windows:

Students currently in grade 5: January 30 – February 6, 2017
Students currently in grades 6-11: February 6 – 17, 2017

Questions may be directed to the portal administrator or school counselor at your current school.

Instructions on how to create a portal account


PowerSchool is the HCPS Student Information System that allows easy access to class grades, attendance, and student schedule information. The PowerSchool Parent Portal is for parents/guardians of students in (or entering) grades 2-12.

In order to access this information, parents/guardians must create an account. For more information about PowerSchool and instructions for creating an account, click here.

The PowerSchool Parent Portal allows parents/guardians with more than one child to access all of their children’s information in one place, with one login and password. Students have separate accounts and log in using their HCPS username and password.
