PowerSchool for Parents
This app works in conjunction with the PowerSchool software being used in numerous school districts (please check to confirm if your school is using it before install on your phone). When connected it gives parents a portal that allows them to keep up with everything as it relates to their child in school. Whether it is school activities, behavior, attendance, grades, assignments and schedules, it is all right there. It also give parents a tool with which they can communicate with teachers. That aspect, of being able to stay in closer touch than the occasional hello at drop off or Back to School Night, was what was most appealing to testers.
