Parents who use PowerSchool, a Web-based student information system, benefit from access to information about their children's academic progress, including individual test, homework and quiz scores in each subject. The program, sold by Pearson Education, provides parents access to attendance records, course information and disciplinary actions taken against their children.
PowerSource was designed to help keep parents informed about their children's academic progress and to improve the communication between educators and parents. Parents can ensure their children are on track academically by monitoring registration and course information. The program also helps teachers notify parents when academic interventions become necessary for their children.
