PowerSchool Help

Williston Public School District #1 is partnered with PowerSchool, a kindergarten-12th grade education technology platform, to improve the educational experience of our students. With PowerSchool, District #1 can:

  • record grades
  • track attendance
  • manage student fees
  • send alert messages to parents
  • and more

We ask that all new parents/guardians of students in Williston Public School District #1 create a PowerSchool account. Even if you have multiple children within the district, you will only need one PowerSchool account.

Williston Public School District #1's code: GKFT.
