Powerschool Parent Portal
Manassas City Public Schools (MCPS) Parent Portal provides parents/guardians with 24 hour access to their child(ren)’s grades, attendance and demographic information. MCPS also utilizes this portal as a gateway for parents/guardians to annually update their information in its student information system.
