Digital Back to School Paperwork

Welcome to the Greencastle-Antrim School District! This document provides a general overview of the various technology systems your child will encounter during their tenure at GASD.

GASD Website

We take great effort to ensure our website is up-to-date, and filled with resources to help you and your child.  Please be sure to check our website regularly for updates regarding transportation, food service, technology, weather, news, and more.  You may visit our website at http://www.gcasd.org.

InfoSnap

GASD has implemented a digital system for managing back to school paperwork, as well as student registration.  When registering your student for GASD, you may have already used InfoSnap to complete your student’s digital paperwork.  Stay tuned for additional information during back to school time regarding any additional paperwork that may be needed.

PowerSchool

GASD utilizes a student information system, PowerSchool, to manage student data digitally.  Students, Parents and/or Guardians may access PowerSchool by visiting https://ps.gcasd.org on their computer, or by downloading the PowerSchool mobile app for iOS and Android devices.  Multiple parents, guardians, or relatives may have PowerSchool accounts should you wish to grant access to your student’s information.  Please contact your school’s secretary for information regarding granting access to additional users. (*NOTE* Kindergarten students will setup their accounts during Kindergarten screenings).

CareDox (Accessed from within PowerSchool)

CareDox is a leader in providing HIPAA- and FERPA-compliant technology to allow crucial health data to be accessible and secure for schools, parents and students.  GASD uses CareDox to complete student enrollment paperwork in a digital format.  To access CareDox, you must first create a parent/guardian PowerSchool account.  Next, you will login to PowerSchool and click on the CareDox icon located on the lower-left hand side of the screen.

SchoolMessenger (Accessed from within PowerSchool)

GASD utilizes an emergency alert management solution, SchoolMessenger, for notifying you of valuable information (i.e. closings and delays).  SchoolMessenger has proved to be reliable and robust, thereby making it an efficient tool for us to keep in contact with your family. To guarantee the messaging system is used efficiently, you will need to confirm your contact information is accurate and up-to-date.  To access SchoolMessenger, you must first create a parent/guardian PowerSchool account.  Next, you will login to PowerSchool and click on the SchoolMessenger icon located on the lower-left hand side of the screen. (*NOTE* Kindergarten students will setup their accounts during Kindergarten screenings).

Best wishes on your start to the 2017-2018 school year!
