Pros
PowerSchool Group LLC
  • 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.

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.

Support Rating
PowerSchool Group LLC
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.

I have heard good things for Infinite Campus and Skyward. I would [evaluate] each of them and see what fits your needs. Each has their strengths and weaknesses and so picking the right one for your needs is important. PowerSchool [Student Information System] does have some great features, but lacks some fundamental reports and functions to make it top notch.

Qustodio
Qustodio stacks up well against other products like Norton Family, Kaspersky Safe Kids, and Net Nanny in terms of its features and capabilities. All of these products offer similar features like website filtering, app management, and monitoring of internet activities. However, Qustodio stands out for its ease of use and user-friendly interface. It also offers more granular controls for setting time limits and restrictions, and the alerts it sends are more detailed and informative. Additionally, Qustodio's customer support is also very responsive and helpful.We selected Qustodio over the other products because it offered the best balance of features, ease of use, and customer support. It was also more cost-effective than some of the other options. Overall, Qustodio has proven to be a reliable and effective solution for our organization's internet usage management needs.
