Overall Satisfaction with PowerSchool Student Information System

PowerSchool is used at our school by the entire organization. The teachers use it in the classroom for daily attendance, as the grading system and for classroom reports. The secretarial staff and guidance counselors use PowerSchool to track and report attendance, student personal information for grades and transcripts. PowerSchool addresses a one stop shopping learning management system. All the information that is needed can be located in one place and is able to do many different things by various people. The same information that is needed by teachers, administrators or counselors can be all accessed from the same place.

Pros

  • Easy grading capabilities
  • Attendance taking capabilities
  • Reports

Cons

  • More varieties of reporting
  • Grading
  • Attendance
  • Reports
  • More ways to manipulate or change reports
PowerSchool was the learning management system that was in place when I started at this institution but I approve of it. It definitely does help simplify the amount of work that goes into the grading process. Grades can easily be calculated as long as a proper setup has been created prior to the start of each school year or marking period.
