PowerSchool Rolls Out Parent-Centric Videos to Drive Student Success
Educational videos available via the parent portal advance understanding and adoption by educating parents about how to use PowerSchool’s solutions
August 4, 2016 — Folsom, CA — PowerSchool announces its launch of a pilot program with several school districts to improve parent involvement and help keep students on track for success. The Parent Engagement Video is offered as part of PowerSchool’s Professional Development+ (formerly known as Distance Learning). The videos help boost parent adoption of PowerSchool’s solutions, improving communication and collaboration between school staff, families, and students.
PowerSchool Registration is the first training video being released to parents as part of the pilot program. Several videos are currently in production to add to this informative library for families. PowerSchool Registration is designed to:
• Improve the parent user experience by educating parents on key features
• Promote the benefits of online registration
• Demonstrate the ease of completing the registration process
“As education technology continues to evolve in K-12 schools and districts, it’s important that the solutions being implemented are also being utilized by the parents,” said Maulik Datanwala, VP of Professional Services at PowerSchool. “PowerSchool is an advocate of improving family engagement and this new resource will help facilitate an increased level of parent adoption and communication.”
PowerSchool’s solutions include the Unified Classroom, which encompass its student information system, assessment and analytics, learning management, special education case management, and online student enrollment and registration. As more videos become available informing parents of how to best utilize a PowerSchool solution, parents can have a significant impact on their child’s educational experience to drive student success.
