How to Claim Your Online Account
PowerSchool is a distinct system used by the Schools to capture and
provide a wide array of information on our students. Academic
information, contact information, and demographic information are all
stored in PowerSchool and used by the various offices in educating our
students. It also provides parents and guardians with progress and grade
reports, teacher comments, and attendance information.

The Schools need permission from the parent or student to release
records. If the student is younger than 16 years old, a parent signature
is required along with detailed instructions as to which records are to
be sent. Those instructions should include the name and address of the
recipient. Explicit instructions to release test scores are required if
you wish to have copies sent along with copies of academic progress.
No fee is charged to current students.
The Schools only provide official copies of records from school to school. Records given to students or parents are unofficial.
Faxing, emailing, mailing, or provision in person are all acceptable methods to request transcripts.
you are a former student requiring a copy of your records, please write
the Office of the Registrar and include a $10 records fee made payable
to "University of Chicago Laboratory Schools".
**Please note, if
you are a graduate of the College or any division of the University of
Chicago, please contact the University of Chicago Office of the
Registrar at 773-702-7891 for instructions.
Depending on the time of year, it can take anywhere from three business
days to a week to fulfill a request. We send transcripts via First Class mail which can take
several days depending on the location. Rush requests can be
accommodated, however the Office of the Registrar cannot promise to
fulfill emergency requests.
Families can update or confirm their information directly in
during the Back to Lab days before school starts. After the start of school a link will be available upon logging in to PowerSchool that will allow you to "Update Your Information".
