5th Grade Pathway to Biliteracy

Calling all biliterate 5th graders. If you are a fifth grader that can read, write and speak in two or more languages--this is for you! 


The Pathway to Biliteracy Award Application went home with all 5th graders in December. If you are interested, you need to return the completed application and reading log to the office by April 13, 2018.

Power School for Families

We are happy to announce the launch of our new student information system, PowerSchool.


PowerSchool will be replacing Parent Connect this fall of 2017. In order to access the new portal you will need to create a new account. This can be done by visiting https://torrance.powerschool.com and selecting the Create Account tab. It is very important that you submit an accurate email address. We recommend the Google Chrome or Firefox browser to access the portal.


You will need your student's Access ID and Password to link your child to your account. If you have multiple children in the district, you will receive a separate letter for each child, which you can link to your newly created account.


Example of Student Access ID and Password


[NAME OF CHILD] Access Password is #####


Please keep your passwords confidential so that only you can access the information.


Once you have your account created and child(ren) linked, we ask that you click on the Registration link to update your information and review district agreements.


Visit www.tusd.org/parents/powerschool for more detailed information. Please contact the school directly should you have further questions.
