On this page:


The PowerSchool SIS Teacher portal helps teachers to manage daily classroom activities such as taking attendance, entering grades, communicating with students and parents, posting assignment details, and much more. With the PowerSchool SIS Teacher portal, these activities can be performed from any networked computer, at any time. This allows more time and attention to be focused on any teacher’s primary aim—teaching the students. The PowerSchool SIS Teacher portal is fully integrated with the PowerSchool SIS Admin portal, allowing educators to take advantage of expanded access to critical student performance for the students that they teach.

The start page serves as the central point from which you begin your PowerSchool SIS Teacher portal session.
