PowerTeacher vs PowerTeacher Pro

PowerTeacher is our original gradebook, and PowerTeacher Pro is our latest gradebook and classroom management tool. We built PowerTeacher Pro using input and testing from real teachers to improve PowerTeacher. PowerTeacher Pro features enhanced data visualization, grade calculations, unified grade scales between standards and traditional grades, and an easier workflow for common tasks such as creating assignments or working with data across multiple sections. PowerTeacher Pro is written in HTML5 and works on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and Chromebooks.

If your school uses the PowerSchool SIS, you can use either PowerTeacher or PowerTeacher Pro, unless your entire district has moved to PowerTeacher Pro. You can move to PowerTeacher Pro during the school year, however you must migrate data correctly. If you have questions or need help, speak to your system administrator or IT department.

Portal

The PowerTeacher Portal

What is the PowerTeacher Portal?
The PowerTeacher portal is an online portal accessible anywhere on the web where teachers can manage classroom-related activities such as grades, assignments, report cards, seating charts, attendance, and more.

How do I log in to PowerTeacher/PowerTeacher Pro?
Each school or district has a unique link for teachers to access their portals.  Visit your school or district’s website, or speak with your school administrators to find how what link you need. Links are specific to each school or district, and PowerSchool as a company does not publish a list of all the web addresses for all of our clients.

How does PowerTeacher Pro work with the Parent and Student Portals?
PowerTeacher Pro syncs directly with the Parent and Student portals. Updates made to items such as grades, assignments, or announcements are updated automatically and immediately in the Parent and Student portals.

How does PowerTeacher work with the PowerSchool Mobile App for parents and students?
PowerTeacher Pro syncs directly with the PowerSchool Mobile App for both parents and students. The App is a mobile-friendly way of accessing the Parent and Student portals. No matter whether parents or students use the App or the portal, they will see the same information. Updates made to items such as grades, assignments, or announcements are updated automatically and immediately in the Mobile app.
