The purpose of the report card is to communicate student learning progress to students and their families. We believe it is important for families to understand what is expected of our students and how well they are progressing toward meeting the standards at his or her grade level.
Rather than sending home print copies, our schools use the parent portal in PowerSchool to share students' report cards. The middle and high schools have been using this paperless option for some time, and it has been very successful. Below you will find directions for how to access your child’s report card on PowerSchool. If you prefer to have a print copy sent home, please contact your child’s teacher to indicate this preference.
PowerSchool Directions: PowerSchool is a robust parent portal that can be accessed from any device, including a smartphone, tablet or computer. PowerSchool can be accessed by going to watertownps.powerschool.com/public. If you are using a mobile device, the district code is BDQX. If you already created a PowerSchool account in Watertown on a previous occasion, your username and password will carry over. If you have forgotten your username or password, simply click on “Forgot Username or Password?” and follow the prompts. Once you log on to PowerSchool, simply click "Report Card" from the choices on the left side of the screen. If you have more than one child in the school system, you will need to select their name from the upper left hand side of the screen. If you have difficulty accessing or navigating PowerSchool, please call your child's school for technical support.
Revised 3-5 Report Cards
During the 2019-2020 school year, Watertown Public Schools revised the 3-5 report card to ensure families had a clear and detailed picture of what is expected and what students know and are able to do at each reporting period. The report card was also revised to better align with Common Core State Standards and our district's curriculum.
