“Power school reviewed by a high school teacher”

OverallOverall it is a very decent program. I have used Skyward in the past and I prefer Power School. I am speaking from my experience as a high school teacher so I do not know how elementary teachers feel about this.
ProsIt allows me to take attendance daily, input grades, check a student's grades, schedule, and parent/guardian contact info, and it has a very simple user interface.
ConsIt is not always user friendly, and some tasks are not straight-forward to complete. For instance, attendance is done in Power school, but grades are done in Power school Pro, and you must keep flipping between the two. In previous versions a teacher could do grade "previews" where they could show a student how an assignment grade would impact their overall grade without actually putting it in the grade book. Now, teachers do not have that ability. Also, many students have power school on their phones so they get notifications to grade updates. This can be frustrating for a teacher since there is no way to save your current grades without publishing them. So, once you start entering grades in for an assignment you need to do all of them or students will be asking a ton of questions about why theirs wasn't graded.

“PowerSchools”

OverallHas some great features and very organized, but would be better if you could change parameters for certain reports more easily.
ProsThe main page is very well organized to view a lot of data at once, not too many clicks to get where you need to go. I am a school nurse so I like the templates that are available for creating individual health plans for the students with medical issues.
ConsNot easy to customize a report unless you are a program administrator.

“Cost-effective SIS for k-12 schools”

ProsUses an Oracle back-end that allows us to use sequel scripts Very customizable page and data management (supports Ajax, JavaScript, sql) Cheapest SIS solution among its peers (infinite campus, Eschool) in the northeast
ConsParent portal functionality is very rudimentary out of the box when compared to the functionality of its competitors' portals Support is very inconsistent and can vary wildly in quality depending on who answers the phone

“Power School does everything you would want in school management; it's just not easy to do so.”

ProsEntering and calculating grades is very easy, as is making information available to families. It comes paired with applications that work on mobile devices. The apps have less features but their availability is essential.
ConsThe back end--run by school administration--is needlessly complicated. Setting it up takes far more steps than it should. Although you pay for customer support the quality and consistency of the support is varied at best.

ConsThere is a lot of things that this software can do to student data. I don"t think i will ever learn it all,

“great service for parents”

Overallupdated status of child grades
ProsEase to track child and teacher progress throughout the year. This portal based grades allows the parents to stay on top of those big reports that the kids shrink away from till the night before its due.
ConsSystem is teacher dependent, and only as good as the data entered. Some teachers enter the data daily others its a bit longer if ever. Would be nice if the data could be automated.

“Accomplishes Its Goal”

OverallPower School gets the job done, plain and simple.
ProsPower School does the thing that it states it can do, it stores grades for your students and allows them to see them as you put them in the grade book. In that sense, it does what it sets out to do. Throwing grades in the book and viewing them is fairly easy.
ConsCertain things are more complicated to do then most. Sometimes grades will not save and will not allow the students to view them. It is a recurring theme that gets old fairly quickly.

“Power School is great in assisting a parent with where their children are with grades”

OverallPower School has allowed me to know the progress of my students. The software is easy to use and clear in where the information can be found.
ProsThis software allows parents to access the students schedules and progress in order to assist in guidance if help is needed if one is struggling and also if they are doing well. It also provides information on students if they are up to date on records etc.
ConsThe least is not necessarily the software but how often it is updated by the users. Seems to work well otherwise.

“Not easy on the eyes but does the job ”

OverallNext I'm in an IT admin role, I'd consider this as a prime contender.
ProsMajor improvements since I used this platform at a school just 5 years ago. Easy to use , crashes less.
ConsOther SMS platforms look prettier or flatter. This one is strictly Utilitarian.
