PowerSchool / D2L

The technology resources at Maplewood Richmond Heights School District allow parents and students in grades 7-12 access to valuable, up-to-date information 24/7. This is accomplished through two, primary tools: PowerSchool and Desire 2 Learn (D2L).

Desire 2 Learn (D2L)

MRH's entire curriculum is built online. This system includes specific classroom environments that both students and teachers can access. Assignment, instructions, and additional course specific resources can be found through D2L.

PowerSchool

PowerSchool is an information sharing system for students in grades 7 through 12, their teachers, and parents. Students can track their own progress, parents have immediate access to their student's grades, and teachers gain timesaving administrative tools.

Benefits for students:

  • Access homework assignments
  • Track progress during the quarter
  • View grades and credits

Benefits for parents:

  • Access up-to-date student performance data
  • Track assignments and attendance
  • Read daily bulletin
  • Receive email reports
  • Communicate easily with teachers

Parents and students will receive Usernames and Passwords at the beginning of the year, by regular mail. These allow private access to PowerSchool from any computer with Internet access. Click here to log on.

Password Not Working?

PowerSchool is very easy to use. The only common problem we encounter is passwords sometimes do not appear to work ("invalid password"). However, what is really causing the problem is that you must install the most recent version of your web browser and make sure Javascript is enabled. This solves 99% of the problems.

Tips

Teachers update their grades on different schedules, so grades will most likely not change every day. Check to see when the report was last updated to understand what has been included in the grade.

Commonly used codes:

  • NHI = not handed in, 0 grade (does impact grade)
  • EX = excused (doesn't impact grade)
  • () = grade not yet entered (doesn't impact grade)
  • Attendance: A = absent, T = tardy
