AGSD Digital Communications via PowerSchool

Avon Grove School District is using a new tool that gives parents and guardians the option to choose how they wish to receive information that is delivered electronically (phone, email, text messaging) about their elementary-aged child(ren).

To help us improve delivery of electronic communications, parents/guardians must first create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account for their elementary-age child(ren), and then update phone and email contact information in PowerSchool’s Contact Manager.
