Enhanced Parent Portal

Note: EPP currently does not support PowerTeacher Pro based sections. As a result the scores page page fragments may need to be removed to show assignments correctly.

Districts not utilizing the new pages added via EPP should evaluate if the stock PowerSchool SIS features are sufficient. Starting with PowerSchool 9.2 the core application provides controls to disable functionality which is also honored by the Mobile App. These settings can be found under Start Page > School Setup > Parent/Student Access.

Version 5 released! This update includes 3 major improvements:
1. Localization of all the new pages. Future updates should include other language packs as well.
2. Separation of the Parent Demographic Change files into its own plugin. This will allow you to make modifications to that page without future EPP core updates overwriting your changes
3. Database Extension table created for the demographic modify fields included.

Please install as a plugin even if you plan on using custom/web_root for your files. This will allow the localization tags and db extension to install. You may still install the web_root files within the zip to your custom/web_root if that method of customization is desired.

IMPORTANT - PowerSchool no longer allows students to edit their own student record. Because of this 1x Class Registration ONLY works when logged in as a Guardian. Students will have full Class Registration ability if 1x is enabled. I am unsure of what version this happened in, just fyi.

This is a new Parent Portal with more options for student screens.

Allows a school or district to show or hide icons on the public portal. The solution now cleans up the automatic e-mail page options when those options are hidden from normal view and displays a message when the grade & attendance page is hidden. Incorporates Roger Sprik's customization that allows a student to submit course requests just one time.

V 5.0.4 (09/29/2015) *Demo update only

  • Added custom insertion points in /admin/students/parentdemochange.html and /guardian/parentdemographics.html. Insertion point is called pdsdemochange.footer. Thanks to those at PSUG-MI 2015 for the suggestion.

Has anyone tested the Enhanced Parent Portal with PowerSchool 9?

Margie Olinger

Hi Jason,

I have installed the EPP plugin on my 8.3 server and it appears to be working fine. I did notice that the version number is on the manage plugin page reports that it is version 4.9.1.

I also installed the Demographics Plugin however, I do not see an option for the Demo in the district/school setup. I have looked around but can't seem to figure out what I am missing. I have removed and reinstalled both plugins, but to no avail.

Is there anything else specific for which I should be looking?

I, too, am having the exact same problem. Updated to what I thought was 5.0.0 only to find that it was 4.9.1 and the Demographic Update Icon is missing although I installed that new plugin as well.

I am having the same issue. My demographic button is missing on the parents page. I have updated to 5.0.2 and added the extension but it is still not showing...what am I missing?

I downloaded and installed the latest plug in today, my server is at 9.0 . I am trying to hide schedule icons from the view of parents and students in one building. I have tried checking everything to only let them see Account preferences. When I do that they can still click on Test Results. when they click on Test Results on left it opens a new screen and all the other links on the left come back and show the Schedules again. Please Help

I would love to have this type of page for teachers and staff to be able to update their information...such as address, phone number, SSN (especially for new teachers), etc.

I have a critical issue right now where the Approve button is not working on the parent demo update page in PS admin. None of our secretaries can update/change the data submitted by parents. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I recently installed the new parent portal and parent demo update plugins. Everything is there and seems to be coded correctly...just can't get the Approve function to work.

We are having the same issue as sconway78 where the Approve button no longer moves the data from the temporary fields to the actual fields. Anyone have any ideas where to look? We are on PS version 8.3.0. A temporary but unwieldy workaround has been to have our secretaries copy/paste from the one field to the other.

Edited to remove my html coding as it seemed to make the page rather wide and Jason has updated the EPP demo update part. Here's a link to the post on PSUG - https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/PSUG/conversations/messages/145194 - in case anyone needs the code for some reason still.


I'm having troubles with the Approve Button too, but I don't have a Yahoo account and prefer to keep it that way. Would someone with a Yahoo account copy/paste the procedure into this forum?

Thanks, Newell

How do I update to the newest version of EPP? We are using version 9.01 and when I tried to install the plug-in, i received error message regarding files in web_root/guardian. Do I need to go to the server and delete these files?

Any ideas why I'm seeing the following message when I click on Grade History?

"There are no term grade records for the selected term."


Dave Lathangue

any ideas how to push the Activities into Parent portal ?


I can't get the demographics button to show. I have followed every advice given in the threads above but can't get it to work. Is anyone else having this issue??

You need to populate: enabledemoupdate with a 1 ... the field is probably blank
I searched for enabledemoupdate=
Then updated student field value: enabledemoupdate to 1

Jean Whitney Zilewicz

That worked! Ahhhhhh! Thank you.

Do I need to add this as a new Field and then change the field value?

My approve button on the admin side is still not working. Just installed the new plugin (9-11-15). I have not migrated my fields yet. Any ideas as to why this doesn't work? The changes show up, but will not transfer. My secretary is just using the copy and paste method. Coding is not my strong suit, but I can work through my deficiencies... Any help would be appreciated.

I have this problem too.

I just upgraded to 8.3 and also to the EPP 5.0.2. I still use the old webroot process and copied all of the appropriate files. I'm getting "String key was not found!" errors on the District> Home page for the Parent Portal Settings Link. If I click on that, I get the EPP setting page, but almost every field shows up as "String key was not found!". I have not used localization translations before, and I noticed there was a folder in the EPP zip file called MessageKeys. Do I need to do something with that? Help please!!
... Susan

Nevermind, I read the instructions more carefully ;) and it does say to install the plug-in even if you use the webroot method. This will install the localizations. Thank you.

I imported epp 5.02 and Demo update 5.03 using CPM. In the wildcard folder, the only guardian header/footer customizations left are the four epp leftnav's. I notice in the 5.02 zip folder is the MessageKeys folder. It is not immediately appearant where that is now located or if in fact it made it through the import. What am I missing?

I just got my account for PDS tonight, in hopes of downloading Enhanced Parent Portal, but I don't see a link to download the plugin? Am I missing something? Or maybe my account isn't set up right?

Never mind - I see it now that I scrolled down the page a ways.

I have PowerSchool SaaS, newly established over the summer. Since installing EPP 5.0.2 and 5.0.3 last weekend, I'm seeing redundant tabs in the Grade History screen of Parent Portal. I deactivated the plugins and the tabs went away. They came back again after re-enabling 5.0.2. Advice?

Thanks, Newell

Is there a way to run a report that lists all the demo changes that were made? If not, is there a way to make it my current selection so I can look through them quickly?

I LOVE this, but it doesn't match our fields, and I am having trouble.

for father day phone and mother day phone, we would prefer to use mothercellphone and fathercellphone

for the parents addresses:


I know that we need to make changes on both guardian and admin side, and I am struggling a bit. Can anyone help me?

Running into the same issue. We use all custom fields for the parent phone numbers because we don't use father and mother for parents, we have G1, G2, G3, G4 for guardian numbers. Each having their own information, G1_Workphone, G2_Workphone etc.

Having a hell of a time making the approve buttons work on that page and I don't know jquery or javascript well enough to make it work.

I have an older Version of the EPP (not plugin). Do I need to remove that prior to installing the plugin and are there instructions for that?

I'm at a complete loss with these approve buttons. I inserted alert text boxes in the functions in the javascript to see if the functions are even called when the approve buttons are pressed. Nothing happens. I'm going to paste the parentdemochange.html page we use with our field names. If anyone sees anything that stands out, I'm all ears.

Latest patch version resolved issue with Approve Buttons. Thanks a bunch.

If we install this new version of the EPP using page fragments - do I need to go in and delete all of the customized pages or will that happen during the install of the plugin? Please advise. - I am really worried about the wildcards/guardianheader.txt and wildcards/guardianheader_yui files as these were files that were in the 9.1 release that said we needed to update in order to fix some of the issues the 9 release had with memory leaks, etc. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hey everyone, I have installed the latest EPP and on the balance page, my balance column is blank all the way down. Anyone have any idea where/ how to fix this?


I have the latest version of Enhanced Parent Portal, 5.0.2, and Enhanced Parent Portal Demo Modify, 5.0.4. Teacher comments, entered in Gradebook, are not displaying in Class Score Detail. If I disable the EPP plugins, then they display fine.

We use Parent Portal to communicate grades (no report cards sent home), so I'm anxious to see a fix.

Thanks, Newell


We are using PS version 8.2.2. The EPP for the Demographic Change randomly disappeared. In ensuring it is now showing again, I get the link to appear twice in the Public Portal. Once as "Demographic Change" and once as "String Key Not Found." It seems the coding language used to create these navigational links are simply inserts, so I am a little stumped how and where to find the "String Key Not Found" in order to now delete it. Please help :)

I have deleted the EPP plugin, but the Parent Demographic Change screen is still view able. Is there a way to remove that as well?
Thank you

I have installed the latest version of the plugin and I get a double header. The new version 9 "P PowerSchool" with an older "PowerSchool" logo over it. Any ideas how I can correct this?

I have the double header also - I'm expecting an old page needs to be deleted??

Went back through their documentation - it's this:

Replaced /wildcards/guardian_header.txt and /wildcards/guardian_header_yui.txt with page fragments. Please remove custom page if it exists from previous version of EPP.
I removed those two files and it's fine now.

Hi Guys,

We are currently on 9.1.1 and I installed the EPP. Love it but I cannot get the demo update to show for either the admin side or parent side. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I just upgraded to from PowerSchool 8.3 to PowerSchool 9.2. My Enhanced Parent Portal features like email notifications and demographic update are not showing. Is EPP 5.0.2 and Demo modify 5.0.3? If yes, is there something else I need to do after the upgrade?

I have two issues. 1. When I open students main page, "Grades and Attendance," all the navigation buttons I have enabled appear just fine. However, once I click on another icon, some of the disappear or change pictures. 2. I can't get the "Class Registration" screen to allow students to actually request classes.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I installed EPP a couple weeks ago and then this weekend PS upgraded us to 9.2.1. On the student side I am seeing "String Key Was Not found" on a number of the screens. I have also lost the screen that shows all the recent assignments. Is there anything I can do to get this fixed?

Will Roundey

I am seeing the same with 9.2.0. When I attended a product release webinar, Jason Springel said that EPP would have to be updated to reflect PS changes to the grades screen and others. So far I am seeing the String key not found on the main grades screen, the grade history, the Grad Progress Icon, and the Access Log icon.

Is anyone else having issues with the "Extract to Key" tool? When I type in the correct title, etc. and then "Extract to Key" I still get the "String key not found" error message.

I just installed EPP 5.0.2 on my test server. I noticed that when logged in as a parent, a few of my students have the Next Years Schedule icon in the left navigation bar. Even though the settings is checked (it is set to not display Next Years Schedule). These particular students don't have a Next School Indicator under Scheduling Setup - it's blank. Is anyone else having this issue? I guess I can check that all of my students have a Next School selected... but I also know that sometimes admins forget to fill that in, so I'm always going to have some blanks. I would rather have the icon not show up.
Thank you

Can you help I want the parents to be able to put in request but not the students.

Thank you

I am getting a lot of String Key not found can you help with this. We are on version 9.2.1

Thank you

Terry Morrow
