Hello,

I am Jill and work in the Guidance office of South Newton High School, Kentland Indiana.  We are just getting introduced to PS and switching over from another SIS.  Although our beginning is sure to be less than smooth with CoVID-19 situation slammed right into our training, I am excited to learn about PS and get it up and running for our school.

Hello, 

My name is Mary and I am an elementary teacher in Iowa.  I use some technology in the classroom and I am a little nervous about the new norm.  We are currently using PowerSchool, Unified Classroom, and Unified Talent.  PowerSchool is very easy to navigate with the little of it that we currently use.  I am sure I will have several questions as we move forward in this together.

Thank you,
