Michigan City Area Schools uses a system for grades, attendance, schedules, and other student information called PowerSchool. This replaces the former RDS Parent Access system.
Student registration takes place using this new system.
Instructions for Registering
(and Setting up your PowerSchool Parent Account)
** Please note that we highly recommend using a computer with Chrome. You may have issues attempting to complete this from a cell phone or other device/browser. **
Step 1: Set up a PowerSchool account
* Using Google Chrome type https://mcas.powerschool.com/public into the address bar.
* Click on the "Create Account" Tab
* Fill in the information requested. Choose your desired username and password, and link your account to your students. Enter your students’ full name, Access ID and Password, and relationship to student. (Access ID and Password are emailed to you upon new student enrollment from your child's school. If you did not receive this email, contact: PowerSchoolAdmin@mcas.k12.in.us and let us know your name, phone number, email address, and child/children's names.)
Note: If you already have a PowerSchool account, you do not need to create a new one. Log in to your existing account and use the Access ID and Password to link your new student under the "Account Preferences" menu option in PowerSchool.
Step 2: Complete registration forms
In PowerSchool, select the student you are registering and click on the “Forms” icon located on the left navigation menu. Please complete all forms for each student in your family.
If you have questions, please call your child’s school.
