PowerSchool Special Programs

On this page:

PowerSchool Special Programs (formerly TIENET)  is now integrated with the PowerSchool SIS. PowerSchool Special Programs is a management system designed to address the entire instructional process including curriculum, assessment, Special Programs case management, and other specialty areas. If enabled, authorized PowerSchool SIS users will be alerted when students' special program documents are available. Once available, authorized PowerSchool SIS users can manage students' special program documents within the PowerSchool SIS Admin portal, the PowerSchool SIS Teacher portal, and PowerSchool Special Programs. In addition, PowerSchool SIS users can access the PowerSchool Special Programs management system. To learn more, watch the PowerSchool SIS and Special Programs Integration Enhancements video.
