Excellent for grading/attendance, and reporting

Features & Functionality

Pros: The versatility. It provides many needed reports, such as attendance, honor rolls, and even connects to Cognos reporting. Report cards are easily printed.

Cons: I have found that the fields we see for student information are quite limited. Our system talks to our SIS, so it may be an issue there, but perhaps there's a way to customize your SIS fields to make it more expansive that I just don't know of yet...

Pros: Immediate updates
Communicate with the Teachers
Grade and Attendance Status
A daily Progress Report.
I like checking into Powerschool to keep an eye on my 5th and 10th grader. (The 10th grader mostly, he is in the crunch to College) It let's, you check their attendance, email their teachers and check the G.P.A. All without waiting to find out during parent-teachers conferences. That way, you can nip any problems in the bud and I am proud to say I have a straight A child because of this.

Cons: None. And I forgot to mention, you can make payments online to the student lunch account, pay for yearbooks or uniforms.

Overall: Parental Satisfaction.

Pros: I like that PowerSchool is so easy to understand and use. I am on PowerSchool daily to complete IEPs, to contact parents, or to check attendance of my students. It's easy to click the area you need and find your information. PowerSchool also gives me the capability to run reports on students so I can check for behavior referrals, print classroom rosters, and more. I can also submit my hearing screening results easily and it makes a great place to house all of the hearing information for my students.

Cons: The system logs me out after a short period of inactivity. I wish it would allow me to stay logged in longer, but perhaps this is a setting on my corporation's end and not PowerSchool itself. I really have no complaints about PowerSchool, so writing cons is difficult. It's a great, easy to use program.

Overall: It makes looking up birth dates, parent/guardian names, addresses, phone numbers, attendance, etc. very simple and easy.

It's so easy to see my child's grades, login, and view assignments

Pros: I like how it displays the grades, classes, final grades, assignments, and all the meanings. It's so useful.

Cons: There's not much to dislike. But sometimes when you login with the correct password, it still won't let you in.

PowerSchool is a good tool for tracking my children's school activity.

Pros: I like PowerSchool's functionality, and being able to follow my children's grades, attendance, etc.

Cons: There were issues with getting accounts set up and linked through PowerSchool that made the experience frustrating at first. Not sure if this was a software issue or an administrator issue, but after it was resolved, the platform worked well.

Overall: PowerSchool was a helpful tool for tracking my students' progress in school.

Pros: Very easy to use. Able to login from anywhere and view my child's daily progress in all of his classes.

Cons: Lack of accountability. Teachers are not required to update their profile on a regular basis. Leaving at times a considerable gap in grading.

Overall: The ability to stay on top of your students progress at school.
