ClassDojo

It works really well sending messages to parents. Parents are more likely to respond using class Dojo than standard email or a phone call. It's sometimes difficult for parents to receive and download attachments. I think it needs to have an engagement piece to track how often parents are interacting through Dojo.

PowerSchool eSchoolPLUS

It is well suited for Charter Schools. I say charter schools because most charts are built from the ground up, and using a specific set of tools from PowerSchool will help all departments to work seamlessly together. The hardest part of the education process is being able to track your own payroll, PD, overtime hours, emails and messages, grades and documentation for students. Schools in perpetual existence have a hard time converting all their documents and processes to a brand new portal. However, new schools, private schools, charter schools, even new online universities would have an easier and much more effective time purchasing and using every single tool that comes from PowerSchool. I believe that it is bigger than just using eSchoolPLUS for education, but using efinance, and atrieve are important also. In terms of eSchoolPLUS it is useful in all schools because it does make the teacher's jobs easier. Managing curriculum, lesson and grade data is quick and easy and engagement is relatively simple on the website and on my mobile iPhone.

This would be the same reasoning as in the previous question. It is all about having enough bandwidth to run it across your district and buildings.

Reports do run in a reasonable amount of time based upon the number of entries you are working with. You are also able to continue working on other areas while the report is being created so your device is not tied up during this process.

Alternatives Considered

ClassDojo

Classtag allows teachers to earn points for interacting on their platform. Teachers use points to purchase things in their store. Although this is a nice feature on that platform, you also have a lot of ads that pop up. I like classdojo because your not overwhelmed by ads, its user friendly and most actions can be completed through a few clicks.

We have used Gradespeed in the past, but that was over 10 years ago and I was not involved in the transition to the new software. I just know that when eSchoolPLUS came into use, we transitioned smoothly and efficiently.

There are days when PowerSchool can be very slow when loading. You definitely have to make sure you have the bandwidth in your district to run the platform appropriately.
