Michigan City Area Schools is moving to a new system for grades, attendance, schedules, and other student information called PowerSchool. This replaces the former RDS Parent Access system.
Student registration for the 2021-22 School Year is now available using this new system. All students must be registered using the new PowerSchool system no later than Friday, August 6.
Instructions for Registering
(and Setting up your new 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.
YOUR ACCESS ID AND PASSWORD HAVE BEEN EMAILED TO THE ADDRESS WE HAVE ON FILE FOR YOU. If you did not receive this email, send an email to: PowerSchoolAdmin@mcas.k12.in.us and let us know your name, phone number, email address, and child/children's names. We will respond with your access ID and password.
Call your child's school or the MCAS Technology Department if you need assistance.
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 below 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.
