My son often forgets to check his PS mobile app. How we get notification turned on on the PS candendar so he gets notified on upcoming tests/assignments?
The only notification options (if allowed by the school) are for attendance and changes in the current grade.

As @DanM3 said, the PowerSchool mobile app gives parents and students instant access to information they need to stay up-to-date on student grades, performance, and attendance and receive real-time push notifications with updates about grades, scores, attendance, assignments, teacher comments, daily bulletins, schedules, and fee transactions.

So I set up a parent to recieve emails for grades and attendence. They have not recieved any. We even checked the daily email, and still nothing. Is there some settings in the administrative level that I can check to see if our system is preventing the email from going out? We are new to Power School SIS and are trying to figure things out.
@jandrade Yes there is an admin setting, but since this is forum is open to parents and student users I prefer not to spell out the details here.
