Resources Roadmap

It’s easy to feel lost between inspecting the school boundary maps, sorting through school fees, trying to locate lunch waivers, and charting transportation. But don’t stress– we’ve got the shortcuts in our Resource Roadmap to get you were you need to go. 

PowerSchool

Make sure your school knows how to contact you, remember your annual Powerschool registration & stay connected to your school. PowerSchool isn’t just for communication. From PowerSchool, parents can check grades, track attendance, register new students, review district policy/procedures, and access applications for the meals program and school fee waivers.

School Boundary Locator

Provo City has created an online mapping interface which allows you to access vital information including finding your school boundary.

Busing

If your child lives 1.5 miles from their elementary school or 2 miles from their middle or high school they are eligible to ride the bus. We also provide transportation for qualifying special needs students.

School Fees and Fee Waivers

There are fees associated with some classes in middle and high school, as well as some after school elementary programs. These fees vary according to class. You may be eligible for a fee waiver. All school fees are subject to fee waivers. Items not subject to fee waiver are yearbooks, personal consumables (letterman jacket, class rings, optional school clothing), school lunch/breakfast, fines, charges for AP tests, non-curricular clubs, refundable deposits and damages to school property.

School Transcripts

For transcripts less than 5 years old, please contact the school’s registrar. For older transcripts, or to order transcripts in July, please contact our Student and Family Services Department.

Chromebook Help Desk

Each PCSD student is provided a Chromebook for use at school and at home. Students will be assigned their Chromebook during the first weeks of school. For any issues, please reach out to the Chromebook Help Desk or complete the work order form.

School Meals and Free/Reduced Meals

Our schools offer all students a variety of nutritious meals. In 2022-2023, school meals will return to full price unless you have applied and are approved for free or reduced meals.

Accommodations and Testing for Special Needs

If your child (ages 3-21) is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech, behavior, physical development, learning difficulty or is experiencing slow development typical for his/her age, they may qualify for differentiated services to meet their needs. We offer a wide array of services to support students with special needs. We provide testing at no cost and then coordinate an educational experience tailored to meet the needs of your student.

Immunizations

Utah law requires that school records include complete immunization records or exemption forms, including documentation of the day, month, and year each immunization was given.

Where to get Immunizations

Immunizations are available from your personal physician or from the Utah County Health Department (UCHD) at the following times and locations. If your child needs immunizations and you will be getting them at UCHD, please take your records of previous immunizations when you go.

  • 151 S. University Ave. Suite 1900, Provo Mon, Tues, Fri. 8:00 to 5:00
  • 151 S. University Ave. Suite 1900, Provo Wed. 8:00 to 7:00

  • 285 N State Rd. 198 3rd floor, Payson Mon. thru Fri 8:00 to 11:30 & 1:00 to 4:30

Immunization Exemptions

To claim a personal, religious or medical exemption, the legal guardian must complete an online educational module (free of charge) and provide a copy of the completed form to the school official.

The online course can be found at www.immunize-utah.org. Completion of the online educational module can be done at the Health Department if you do not have access to a computer. For a medical exemption, a written note from a licensed health care provider must be provided along with a copy of the completed online educational module. It should state the physical condition of the student, and why that vaccine would endanger the student’s life or health.

Blocksi

Blocksi is a new tool being used in Provo City School District schools to help teachers  manage Chromebooks in the classroom to keep students safe and enhance the  learning environment. Blocksi also has a Parent Portal that helps parents have control  and information about student use of school Chromebooks while at home.

Parents can learn how to set up their Blocksi accounts and set preferences for their students’ at-home internet use with our tutorial document.

Canvas Observer

We encourage all parents to become observers in their students’ Canvas courses. This will help you better understand how your child is participating in their classes. 

Parents can initiate the process of being an observer in a student’s course by following a few simple steps: 

  1. You will need a ‘pairing code’ for each of your students. Your student can access this code by logging into their Canvas course (instructions available here), or you can obtain a code from your student’s teacher(s).
  2. Watch this video for step-by-step instructions on how to activate your parent Canvas account and become a course observer.
  3. Use this link to navigate to Provo City School District’s Canvas login page.

Notice of Non-Discrimination

The District does not discriminate in programs, services, activities or employment on the basis of religion, sex, sexual orientation, race, color, national origin, age, veteran or military status, or disability. Learn more about inquiries regarding students, programs, services or activity compliance at our Notice of Non-Discrimination page.

Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students who are 18 years old or older (“eligible students”) certain rights concerning the student’s education records. Read more about FERPA and the Notification of Rights.
