Elementary Grade Setup

Sorry for the delay, but I wanted to let all elementary teachers know that YOUR final grade setup is DONE! Yippee! PowerSchool had an update this summer. Because of this, I was able to push out your categories and final grade setups!

Remember that email that gave you a login to PowerSource? That is our technical support site that you can access 24/7 AND it has 5 minute videos you can look at to help you learn more on your time. Remember to take a look at my PowerTeacher Resources blog. I even have a video in the PowerTeacher Pro Google folder that I have shared with each of you.

I do plan to share a few more videos when I have time. Please make sure you are clicking on the PowerTeacher Pro link after you have logged into PowerTeacher to launch your NEW gradebook. The old yellow icon on your desktop is the OLD gradebook. You have access to this to see your previous years’ grades.

PowerTeacher Pro Resources


I wanted to share a google folder with you to help you through your first days of working with our new version of gradebook. Don’t forget to access the Mastery in Minutes, PowerTeacher Pro videos through PowerSource.

I will be posting more a little later.

Have a great first week!


Student Online Registration


We are here to help you save time! PowerSchool Registration, formerly known as InfoSnap, is our online registration application. Not only do we use it for NEW students, but we also use it for RETURNING students.

If you do not want to fill out all of the paperwork, you can now use this method and just update your child’s information. Once a student’s information is entered, the process becomes even easier in the future. In future years, you can simply log in and confirm that the information is correct or make any necessary changes. You will not have to re-enter the same information!

How do I get started? Visit http://goochlandschools.org/ and click on the Parents drop-down menu. Click on PowerSchool and log in with your login.

From the Parent Portal: (There is a quick video you can watch about PowerSchool Registration.) Select the student you wish to register along the top Click the arrow icon in the top right Select the Infosnap Student Registration Agree to the terms and conditions Click Begin Forms I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you aren’t able to retrieve your login credentials using the “Forgot Username or Password?” link on the Sign In page, please contact your school directly for assistance logging in to the Parent Portal.

Do I have to answer all the questions? Questions marked with a red asterisk (*) are required.

What if I make a mistake? If you would like to make a change prior to submitting the form, you can either navigate back to the page using the “< Prev” and “Next >” buttons or if you are on the Review page click on the underlined field.  If you have already submitted the form you will need to contact your student’s school so they can make the changes for you.

I’ve completed the form, now what? Once you have finished entering your information click “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.

What if I have more than one student in the district? Do I need to do this for each child? Yes you will need to provide information that is specific to each child.  We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then start another. This will allow you to “snap” (or share) selected family information, which saves you time.

Help! I’m on the PowerSchool Registration form and I’m having technical difficulties. Use the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the InfoSnap page to find appropriate contact information for your technical issue.
