Our district has technology in use for what it can do, not for what it is. For us that’s providing a personalized learning path for our students. Regardless of what your grade level is or what your passion might be in terms of learning, we believe that we can provide that using technology. And part of that learning process is providing timely feedback in terms of assessments, grades, and attendance as we go forward. PowerSchool helps give us that main feedback system. It gives us a quick and easy way for parents to see where students are and also provides a transparent way for everyone to collaborate in that student’s education.
