What is powerschool
What is PowerSchool?

  • Dumb Question?

    • Obviously it’s a Student Information System (SIS)

    • Or it’s a Student Management System (SMS)

  • Web-Based

    • Almost entirely now

  • Focus is to be Student-Centric

  • Highly Customizable

    • and breakable…

  • Not always the best product for specific tasks

New to PowerSchool?

  • Determine Priority functions for your school/position

  • Don’t try to implement the full set of features immediately

  • Focus your learning on top priority items first to ensure strong knowledge of functionality

    • You will still be learning new things 3, 4, 5 years into using the product

  • Take notes, but don’t think the way you did it last year is the only way of performing a task.
