How can our teachers email parents of a course? In the old gradebook they were able to simply click on a email feature and the emails assosciated with each student popped up and they were able to send out 1 email, this was always current and live information.
Thank you for posting your suggestion in the Community!
I have submitted a feature request to the PowerTeacher Pro Product team on your behalf to enable a feature that will allow teachers to send an email to parents within PowerTeacher Pro. We thank you for your suggestions to improve PowerTeacher Pro for all users.
Please add the option/ability to text if parents opt in for messages to the request.
I second this. This was the most useful feature for PowerTeacher. Can I get on an email list for when it becomes available? This is a must have.
Thank you for supporting this suggestion! @themrwerth @nate2000
I have provided the emphasis on this feature request to our Product Team!
I would also like this feature to be added. After switching from our last SIS, I cannot believe this feature is omit from PowerTeacher. Please enable this feature ASAP. Thank you.

Any update. Is this on the roadmap for PowerTeacher Pro?
Thank you for the question!
PowerSchool SIS 188.8.131.52 and above versions have a new feature added that enables emailing from PowerTeacher Pro. With this, if your district has enabled the email option, then you can quickly communicate with your students and their contacts while reviewing assignments and grades. Teachers can now send plain-text emails to students and contacts directly from the Create option in PowerTeacher Pro. An option to Copy Emails will copy all selected email addresses (separated by a semicolon and space) to the clipboard, allowing an email that requires rich text or attachments to be quickly drafted using another email service.
