    Below are step-by-step instructions for setting up your free account.

    First, you must know your child's birth date and Student ID number, found under "Demographic Information" within PowerSchool. If a family has multiple children who ride different buses, go to "Account Settings" and select "Add Rider."

    Once you launch the app or website, please:

    • Select "Create Account"
    • Select "Auburn City Schools" from the District list
    • Add Student
    • Fill in the birth date and the Student ID
    • Select "Save"
    • Select "Continue" (this is the point where you can select "Add Rider")
