Indispensable tool tracks all school info in one place.
Keeping up with important school information can be an overwhelming chore - but PowerSchool makes it so much easier. In addition to being available online, the app makes it possible to see what's going on with your child at any time. You will likely be notified by your child's school if PowerSchool is available to you; signing up with your school district's individual code might be a little bit of a pain, but once you're in, you're all set.
In the Dashboard area of the mobile app, you'll find all of the following:
- Class Overview: grades for each class, with the option to see individual assignment grades
- Assignments Due: homework or in-school assignments, in case your student needs reminders!
- Assignment Status: see missing, incomplete, and late assignments
- Attendance: absences and their status - excused or unexcused
- School Bulletin: information about clubs, activities, school news, etc.
- Meal Balance
- Fees At the bottom of the app are options to see Classes (your student's entire schedule at a glance), Calendar, and Account (change notifications and student profiles), as well as a school info and help section. I have two children in two different schools and can easily switch between them by tapping an icon in the upper right corner of the app. I love how easy it is to keep up with both kids in one app. PowerSchool has become one of my indispensable tools, and I'd recommend it to every parent who has this option.
Vorteile: I love being able to see everything I need to know about grades, assignments, attendance, and school news in one place - and being able to switch between my children and see info for both, even though they attend different schools. I use this app every day!
Nachteile: It can be a little tricky to navigate student grades because there are so many options (semester grades vs. current grading period, etc.) If you have more than one student, the app has switched between them when not in use, so pay attention to which child you're looking at when you first turn on the app! One of my daughters freaked right out when I told her that she had a C in English...when I was actually looking at her sister's grades by mistake.

I used this software in middle school and starting sophomore year in high school.
Kommentare: I think this was a significant upgrade from the software my school used to use for grading, although that software did have the grade calculation function that we wished PowerSchool had. The best thing about now using PowerSchool is that it doesn't crash as easily and it's easier to see grades at a glance. Additionally, teachers can make announcements and that function has been really helpful for my school as a whole.
Vorteile: My favorite function in this software is that you can submit assignments through this and it will send you an email update that lets you know that it was turned in. This is helpful because sometimes teachers don't notice that something was turned in and will count it late and this way students have a way to back up their claim that it isn't late. I also really like that teachers can do things like vocab tests and simple multiple choice tests that self-grade and auto-input the grades because it's less work for both the teacher and the student and it's a fast turnaround. The third thing that I like about this software is that you can look at the calendar on the landing page and immediately see which assignments are more urgent (in terms of due dates). This makes our lives a lot easier because that way we don't have to write all the dates down for the assignments we have yet to complete.
Nachteile: The software will sometimes crash and give us a picture of a cat with a ball of yarn and say that it's just tangled up, which gets frustrating because a lot of people my age obsessively check their grades and remind themselves of assignments, and we get very fidgety and stressed out if we can't see the grades because of all the things that could be being updated but that we just aren't able to see. Also, as far as my school's use of this software goes, we can't test to see what our grade would be if we get a certain grade on another assignment that the teacher has assigned point values to already. This is a function available in some other softwares in this category so students get frustrated that it's possible but the school makes it so we have to use outside resources to figure it out, or just our general math knowledge, when it could be much easier.

Powerschool is a powertool
Kommentare: I was resistant to the change to PowerSchool, at first, but I can honestly say that it's a great software that has the whole school on the same page. It's really helped us go digital, as well!
Vorteile: Powerschool has everything for the district in one place, which makes keeping track of students easy across the board. Grades, attendance, reports, lunch and library fees, any sort of notes, are all kept track in Powerschool, and if a student transfers within the district, the information travels with them, so it really is a wonderful hub for teachers and administrators. It's also great because parents and students have their own login information so that everyone is able to stay up to date on grades, etc. without teachers having to constantly send home updates.
Nachteile: Set-up in powerschool is a little more involved than it was in Pearson. And updates aren't automatic but instead have to be done manually. Also, when the system goes down (which is occasionally does), then you're out of luck for literally everything...

Kommentare: My school loves using PowerSchool. It is so versatile. Every level teacher can use the program. My work is in the office and I managed the program by inputting the students, setting up the classes and did the rollover each year. I enjoyed learning every part of the program. It was a rewarding challenge. It was a pleasure to introduce the staff to PowerSchool.
Vorteile: I LOVED the videos that trained me in every step as I was in charge of the transition to PowerSchool for our school. I worked with our contact from PowerSchool who walked me through the data set up and transfer of our students information. Working with her was very helpful, but for the fine tuning I returned over and over to the videos to reinforce knowledge of the program. I loved turning around and training the schools staff in the use of PowerSchool by being able to tell them specifically which videos applied to them so they were brought up to speed very quickly, then if they had the desire they could go on to learn more. Each teacher was able to do the minimum required by our board and many of the younger teachers delved in even further for a more robust experience.
Nachteile: The process of beginning our school on PowerSchool was a bit difficult because the consultant assigned to my school seemed to make assumptions maybe based on other schools she had worked with? This was done without my input which resulted in my needing to go in and hand make some changes int eh initial data transfer which took a large amount of time.

The best I've seen
Kommentare: I have used PowerSchool for about eight of my 15 years teaching. I would recommend it for any school. I would say one of the best features is being able to see my students' schedules, the grades they have for their classes, and a breakdown of their assignments. As a resource teacher, I often work with students who require credit recovery. It's so nice being able to see exactly how they're doing in their classes. It makes counseling and organizing so much easier.
Vorteile: I have been teaching for 15 years and have gone through many school management systems. PowerSchool is by far the best one. I am able to take attendance, keep track of grades, access communication information for the student, I can see their schedule, their grades for each class and what they are missing in that class. Everything I need is in PowerSchool. It's visually appealing, and easy to navigate.
Nachteile: I teach resource classes and often have several different grade levels in one class. This is set up as multiple classes with the same period number. I wish I could combine those so my attendance page and my grade book aren't so messy.
