PowerSchool is an internationally recognized student information system (SIS) from Pearson (http://www.pearsonschoolsystems.com/products/powerschool/), a world leader in educational products. PowerSchool also includes PowerTeacher, Pearson's premier electronic grade book for teachers.
PowerSchool is the fastest-growing, most widely used web-based student information system, supporting nearly 9 million students in all 50 states and over 50 countries. PowerSchool enables today's educators to make timely decisions that impact student performance while creating a collaborative environment for parents, teachers and students to work together in preparing 21st century learners for the future.
With over 150 reports and thousands of pages and functions, PowerSchool has the most complete feature set of any SIS available to educators today. In order to make the system accessible to all users: administrators, teachers, parents, and students, PowerSchool has evolved over the last decade to stay abreast of the latest web design standards. Users are presented with a simple and elegant interface that organizes the system in a way that makes sense for users of all experience and ability levels.
In Jackson County, all of the local public school districts now use PowerSchool.
As recently as 2007 there were 7 different SIS systems being managed by Jackson County schools. Each district/school had to provide its own support model, take care of its own training, and work independently when it came to state reporting and student data management. By moving to PowerSchool, each of these districts is able to save money through a centralized support and training system provided through the Jackson County Intermediate School District.
