I'm a teacher with both SIS and LMS access and find the LMS side SOOOO much easier to email with, however, my district has enabled an app called BrightArrow that allows us to email just students, just teachers, or both. It automates the emails so that they come from a district account rather than our personal/district email addresses. However, parents can reply back to just us, so it isn't a completely non-reply account.
This is what the BrightArrow app looks like on our side:
Our district uses BrightArrow. Hopefully it is ready for us to use in this way in Power School.
I guess I need to email our Tech Department. Thanks
