Our school is in the process of leveling classes to evenly distribute enrollment amount the teachers. Sometimes they notify the student, often they do not. I asked the admin if there was a setting in the system that would generate an automated message notifying teachers of adds/drops. Their response was that this is not a feature in Powerschool. I find this very hard to believe and wanted to confirm it within the community. Does anyone know if this is possible? It would be great if teachers received an email informing us that a student has dropped our class, changed class periods, added our class, etc. At my previous school, we used another platform but it did generate an email notification. If you know of the setting, could you please post instructions or a cheat sheet for how to turn this on. Thank you in advance!
There is a feature request added in the Ideas Portal to alert the teacher when a student is dropped from a class. Here is the Idea number "
Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern.
We have shared this request with our Product team. However, we do not have an update on if and/or when it can be added to the PowerSchool SIS at this time. We do have a new feature, the PowerSchool Ideas Portal, where users can submit their ideas directly to the Product team. It also allows you to review the idea for status updates as well as share the idea with other users to support it by voting.
