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 SIS

PowerSchool [Student Information System] is a solid program for teacher and students to track attendance and has a good gradebook if you use no other programs, it is not a good player with other systems and is hard to get data out of to may data driven decisions. PowerSchool does offer API and integration with some programs but you only can have read-only access to the database so if you need to write something you have to use their interface.

Pros

ClassDojo

  • Communicate with Parents
  • Track behaviors
  • Reward for positive behaviors
Wesley MIller | TrustRadius Reviewer

PowerSchool SIS

  • PowerSchool houses student or staff information that can be easily accessed by those teachers and administrators who need the information. This allows everyone to go to one place to access information.
  • Parents can view their child's grades at any time with their protected login on a parent portal. This allows teachers to keep parents informed and involved in their child's progress at school. When everyone works together it increases our students' chance for success.
  • PowerSchool offers videos to train new users. When we have new employees, the videos can be accessed at any time the employee needs as opposed to them waiting for someone to help them.

Cons

ClassDojo

  • Date and time stamp when parents view a message
  • Multiple teachers for classes
Wesley MIller | TrustRadius Reviewer

PowerSchool SIS

  • Does not consistently communicate with related software such as Illuminate for Special Education Students.
  • Drop down menus frequently refresh as data is entered which slows down the user's ability to enter information.
  • Icons are sometimes unclear and not easily understandable. Word labels for some items might be more effective.

We would be starting over at square one if we did not continue our PowerSchool subscription. We do not have a program in a place that would take its place.

Overall, I have not had to use support for PowerSchool Student Information System because our school district gives us training in each area in which we will be utilizing PowerSchool Student Information System. In terms of in-user support, I feel that there is mild to moderate user support that is built into PowerSchool SIS.

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.

PowerSchool SIS

PowerSchool Student Information is the gold standard for Student Information Systems. They know what they are doing, how to serve K-12 schools and school districts. The other Student Information Systems did not meet our districts minimum standards for the needs that we have, nor do they have the support that PowerSchool has.

Return on Investment

ClassDojo

  • Behavior has improved when you reward students.
  • You can identify triggers for behaviors by seeing patterns in their behavior.
  • Parents interact more

PowerSchool SIS

  • It has created shortcuts for all staff members, saving us time.
  • In creating shortcuts and combining many different systems into one, it is saving our school money.
  • It has created a safety net for teachers because grades and student information is stored electronically, which means teachers not having to worry about losing or misplacing their grade books.
