PowerSchool is a database that contains our school-wide student information system. Depending on your intended use, PowerSchool (also referred to as PowerTeacher when used by a teacher) is accessed through this website.
As a teacher, you will primarily use these three features of the PowerTeacher website most frequently:
- Official Gradebook (also called PowerTeacher Pro). You can find this yellow icon on your desktop. While there’s a gradebook in Schoology, PowerSchool is the official place for grades on record – not Schoology. For some, it may be easier to use the Schoology gradebook sync OR you may enter grades directly into PowerSchool.
- Official Attendance. Attendance is taken within the first 10 minutes of class via PowerSchool for Teachers. When your class begins, click on the 1st chair icon to begin taking roll.
- Access to Student Information. On occasion, you may need to find parent emails, student IEP plans, class schedules, and/or any other necessary demographic information. You can find this by going to PowerSchool for Teachers, then clicking on the backpack icon the far left.
