PowerSchool plays a central role in K-12 education, serving as the hub of customers’ education ecosystems. It includes robust features and APIs that allow stakeholders to effectively manage school processes and student data and connect technologies relied upon in school offices and classrooms alike.
PowerSchool provides the full range of features needed by administrators at the district and school level. PowerSchool includes a powerful gradebook and teacher tools that provide all the features teachers need in one place, making it easy to use and learn. All classes, rosters, student demographic information, grading periods, standards, rubrics and grade scales are automatically loaded into the gradebook. All data flows back to the central database in real time, providing all stakeholders, including parents and students, with instant visibility to assignments, scores, grades, comments and progress toward each standard.
Parents and students have access to real-time information on grades, attendance, comments, assignments and scores directly from the teacher’s gradebook via the PowerSchool web portal and free PowerSchool mobile app. Parents may monitor their child’s proficiency on standards and register to receive immediate alerts specific to their child. In addition, schools can offer the parent and student web portal in 19 languages.
