The gradebook/ student data management system PowerSchool recently released two free iPhone and iPad apps. The new apps, one for students and one for parents, give students and parents instant access to information like attendance records, grades, assignments, and school-wide announcements. To use the app the school has to be using PowerSchool 7.1 or later.
Applications for Education
For students and parents who use iPhones and or iPads, the PowerSchool apps should be handy for keeping up with important information. Parents concerned that their high school students may have skipped a class can check on that information quickly (provided the record in PowerSchool is updated).
