Welcome to the PowerSchool Community! 


The mission of our PowerSchool Community is to provide a place for educators, leaders, and other members to share best practices, ask questions, get helpful information, and be in contact with other PowerSchool users. 


We encourage and welcome interaction and communication in our community, as long as you observe these important community rules: 


  1. Be respectful.

Respect people's time and attention by asking well-thought-out questions and sharing what you've learned so far in your experimentation or prior research. Respect people as individuals by keeping your tone positive and your comments constructive. 


  1. Be relevant.

Make sure your contributions are relevant to the community, and to the specific area and topic where you post. Please do not post duplicate messages in different areas of the community to avoid fragmenting discussion. If you have a new question, start a new thread rather than interrupting a conversation. Solicitations are rarely relevant. If you have something you want members to join, participate in, or buy, ask us first. 


  1. Keep your word.

Don't post anything that would violate any contractual agreements (copyright, trade secret or otherwise) or nondisclosure agreements to which you are a party. 


  1. Protect privacy - yours and others'.

Don't share anything about yourself or your organization that you would not want to see shared publicly. Share your business email address if you wish, but don't post personal information-your own or anyone else's-including contact information or any content that you receive in one-to-one communications without the author's consent. For more guidance please review our Privacy Policy 


  1. Remember, this is user-generated content.

You'll find plenty of good advice here, but remember that your situation, configuration, or implementation may vary from that of the individual sharing a solution. Some advice you find here may even be wrong. Apply the same good judgment here that you would apply to information anywhere on the Internet. 


By using our forums, you agree to follow these rules as well as the full Terms of Use for the PowerSchool Community. We thank you, and your fellow community members thank you. 


PowerSchool Employees 


You will notice that some community members have a PowerSchool logo next to their names - this means they are PowerSchool employees. Like you, they are members of the community around PowerSchool products, and we encourage them to share their knowledge and opinions here. 




We want this to be the best community it can possibly be - so let us know what you think, or how we can help improve your experience on the PowerSchool Community by visiting our Feedback and Suggestions topic.
