Thank you for posting in the Community.
I recommend reaching out to the Designated Support Contacts in your school district who can assist you further with this.
Your district MAY have a test/sandbox environment, but they also may not! Definitely speak with your Powerschool admin/team.
However, there is also a PowerSchool labs if you just want to look at new features. I believe you can find it here: https://support.powerschool.com/f/powerschool_sis_features__enhancements
Hope that helps!
