PowerSchool 4.0 (www.powerschool.com) is a student information system that lets educators manage student records and make better decisions based on data. It also provides immediate access to grades and progress for students and teachers. New features of PowerSchool 4.0 include an automated walk-in scheduling capacity, which allows users to easily enroll students in existing sections based on their preferences. Users of PowerSchool 4.0 also will benefit from increased flexibility and reduction in data entry for discipline and activity-log reporting, as well as multilevel searching within logs to meet No Child Left Behind requirements. In addition, the SIF-compliant PowerSchool 4.0 contains reports and extracts for California, Arizona and Texas state requirements.
