Bug report: seating chart takes long time to load CSS


Bug report: seating chart takes long time to load CSS


Whenever I open my seating charts in PowerTeacher to take attendance, it takes a good 10 seconds of loading for the page to become responsive.


I opened up my Firefox dev tools to see what was happening – apparently the page is just recalculating and re-rendering styles for 10 seconds.

What the heck is wrong with PowerSchool’s programming that takes 10 seconds to do CSS? 10 seconds is an eternity in the classroom. I’d understand if it was just network latency, but this is definitely on your programmers. Please fix.

Is there any update on this from Development? We also have teachers complaining that the seating chart used to load fast, and now takes 8-10 seconds to load.

Hi @missusliz,


This issue was resolved with with PowerSchool SRC update release PS_21.11.1.0. I recommend reviewing this article for more information. You might work with the technical contacts in your school district to review the information in this article as this is limited to the technical contacts of a district.


Additionally, have you tried to replicate this issue on a different browser or in an incognito window? If this doesn't help you then I recommend reaching out to the PowerSchool SIS team through a support case as they will be able to assist you further with this by replicating your scenario on their side.  


Note: If a teacher finds the seating chart is taking a while to load, we recommend that they cancel the process by hitting the Esc button on their keyboard, zooming out of the seating chart, and trying to load the seating chart again.
