While it is possible to use the PowerSchool App and we have some information about this below, using the browser view is still our recommended method since the app sometimes has connection issues. BFA does not develop either platform, but we have seen consistency in the browser view.
This section covers:
Logging into the PowerSchool App
What is accessible in the App
Class Specific information and Semester Comments
Options at the Bottom of the Dashboard
When you first load the app you will need the District Code. Enter LQTS for the BFA code.
For parents, you will need the Username and Password that you created when logging into PowerSchool through the website app. If you have not used your Student Access Code and Student Access Password to claim your PowerSchool account, please click here.
For students, you will use the first part of your email address up to the @ symbol as the username and the password is the passphrase you created for your email account.
What is accessible in the App?
Dashboard: This will give you a quick view of all the classes the student is enrolled in for the period of time selected.
Parents, if you have multiple students at BFA and have claimed all of them and connected them to your account through the browser version of PowerSchool then you will see your students name/picture in the upper right corner of the dashboard. If you click on the name/picture you will be brought to a page where you can select your other student's information.
Class Specific Information: From the dashboard, if you select a specific class you will see the grade and assignments for that specific class. If S1 or S2 is selected directly below "Attendance information" you will see Teacher Comment. That is where you will find the teacher's comment for the student.
Options at the Bottom of the Dashboard: Upcoming, Recent, and Status
Upcoming: This will show the upcoming work for all classes.
Recent: This will show the recent work done by the student and the point received/letter grade for the assignments
Status: This will show three options: Missing, Incomplete, and Late. This shows assignments that have those flags.
Other Options: At the bottom of the App you will notice that there are several options: Classes, Calendar, Schedule, and More.
Classes: This shows a listing of the classes your student is enrolled in for the term selected at the top of the page. Here you will want to select the relevant Quarter.
Calendar: This shows a listing of the assignments that are due on a certain date.
Schedule: The students schedule on that day or a day selected.
More: You will find information about your account/your notification settings, school information, help regarding the app, and basic information about the app.
