All families received an e-mail on Monday, August 21, about the need
to complete the online Returning Student Registration process as soon as
possible. It is important that the district starts the school year with
accurate contact information for all families and this is how it is
This information is how the district knows who to contact in case of emergency and where to deliver messages on snow days and in other time-sensitive situations.
The Returning Student Registration process is accessed through the district’s Parent Portal. To get started, simply visit the Niskayuna PowerSchool Parent/Student Portal login page at https://powerschool1.niskyschools.org/ and sign into your account.
Once you are signed in, select the student you wish to register, and click on the Returning Student Registration link on the left side of the page.
If you completed this process last year, it should take even less time this year: Most fields will be pre-populated, which means that you will only need to confirm information.
You do need to fill out one form for each student attending our schools.
If you need help accessing the Parent Portal or have any other questions, please contact the main office of your child’s school.
Families who do not have a Parent Portal account are receiving letters with instructions for how to establish one.
