ELMORE COUNTY PARENT ACADEMY
PowerSchool Parent Portal is a program that allows parents to review information related to grades, attendance, homework assignments, discipline records, and other student data from the current year. In order to access records, a student must be enrolled in Elmore County Schools. The information you view is live data.
Each legal guardian will have one login to view all of their children. If you have more than one login to view your children even if they attend multiple schools please contact your school so they may correct this. Also, if the list of children under your login is not correct also please contact that child's school.
Information for logging in is sent annually. Login information will be coming soon.

Edgenuity Frequently Asked Questions
In Elmore County, we believe that parents should be afforded options when deciding on their child’s education. Because we know you have questions, we have a compiled list of FAQs that we hope will help you in this very hard decision.
Option 1: TRADITIONAL FACE to FACE instruction
Option 2: SCHOOL-BASED VIRTUAL instruction will use
1. Grades K - 5: Odysseyware
2. Grades 6-12: Edgenuity
FAQ’S for Parents:
Q: Is Odysseyware and Edgenuity the same as the E.D.G.E. Virtual School that I’ve read and heard about?
A. No. They are totally different. If your child is enrolled at a base school, and you choose the virtual option, then your child will be using Odysseyware (K - 5th grades) or Edgenuity (6th-12th grades). There is nothing to be done to register your child for either of these virtual platforms.
If you wish to participate in athletics, contact the base school to discuss the best option.
Q. Where or how can I find out more about Odysseyware? I’m concerned about rigor, content, etc.
A. To help K-5th parents in their decision, Elementary and Middle schools will have the following information and video tutorials uploaded on their websites, and our county website at www.elmoreco.com. We have also provided three student tutorials as well. Below is the parents’ information:
