What Is PowerSchool?
Immanuel Lutheran School has implemented a new administration system called PowerSchool©. PowerSchool is an easy-to-use, web-based student information system that administration, staff and teachers will use to handle virtually all tasks involving student records, including:
- Attendance Tracking
- Lunch Administration
- Transcript Reporting
Guardians (i.e. parents) can view real-time grade information, which includes details on assignments, quizzes and tests!
Guardians (parents) can securely access authorized student information through the Internet, using only a small portion of PowerSchool functionality
Teachers use PowerSchool and another module called PowerGrade to set up assignments, record grades and submit lunch counts
Administration staff use the full capabilities of PowerSchool to set up, maintain and report on student records and activities
Guardians access PowerSchool through any standard web browser. Before access can be granted you must fill out a User Access Request Form. After this form is filled out and sent to the school office, Usernames and Passwords will be issued to your home via regular mail. Since security is paramount, it is critical that you memorize your Username and Password or keep it written in a secure location. Similar to online banking, your information is only as secure as your ability to keep your Username and Password protected. You will be assigned 1 Username and Password per student. Consult the PowerSchool Overview for detailed instructions on how to use the site.
In order to view the PowerSchool Overview, the Frequently Asked Questions, and the User Access Request Form on this page you need to have a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If you don't have it already on your computer, you can download it for free.
