Is the powerschool app and this website linked? Is it the same thing?

Re: Powerschool app

This is a great question for the Community!

 

Yes, the PowerSchool Mobile app is a mobile version for the parent portal.  Are you seeing any inconsistencies with the PowerSchool Mobile app compared to the parent portal?

Re: Powerschool app

But, if you have Unified Classroom and Google SSO the app doesn't work!

Re: Powerschool app

So on the app you can see grades/class schedules etc. But on the website you can't. So I was wonderinf if it's possible to access the same information? Maybe I'm not seeing it, or the website itself is just a helpful forum?

Re: Powerschool app

@Lehaller  Generally speaking you should see grades, schedules and attendance on both the app and the parent portal. (If the school set their permissions properly.) The app has one different feature (if enabled by the school) and that is push notifications. The parent portal (website) can be extensively customized by showing other content. (We do teacher evaluations, self-narratives, etc.) on the website.) The app cannot be customized in that manner.

Re: Powerschool app

@fmarques The PowerSchool Mobile app is associated with the PowerSchool SIS portal.  Due to this, parents and students should be able to view the information within the PowerSchool SIS site.

 

@Lehaller The school district can choose what is shown on the parent portal as well as the PowerSchool Mobile site.  I recommend reaching out to the school to inquire on the information that is set to appear in the parent portal and the PowerSchool Mobile site

Re: Powerschool app

Yes,  if parents created the account in PowerSchool SIS but, if parents created their account using Google SSO on Unified Classroom the app doesn't work with Google SSO!

@fmarques Thank you for your reply!

 

The parent portal and mobile app are associated with data in PowerSchool SIS.  The parent portal for PowerSchool SIS and the PowerSchool Mobile are separate sites than the Unified Classroom parent portal.  If a parent has not created a PowerSchool SIS username, the parent can locate their SIS generated username by navigating in Unified Classroom to Quick Links> Main Portal Page> Account Preferences> Username Field.  This will be the SIS username for the PowerSchool mobile app.
