PowerSchool works with Perrysburg Schools to implement a comprehensive student information system

PowerSchool is collaborating with Ohio’s Perrysburg Schools to replace its student information system to help power its school operations, increase district efficiency, and enrich integration to the online systems used by this district.

The new SIS solution will also improve data accuracy and make it easier for families to view student progress at all levels, content in the district’s learning management system, and access to Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

“We were looking for a solution that would seamlessly integrate with many of the platforms we currently use, such as IEPAnywhere and Schoology. PowerSchool will increase efficiency throughout the district,” notes Joe Sarnes, Technology Integration Specialist at Perrysburg Public Schools.

The robust functionality within PowerSchool provides school administrators, parents, and students with instant visibility to assignments, scores, grades, comments, and progress toward each standard.

Transitioning to PowerSchool will allow Perrysburg families the ability to monitor student proficiency on standards and receive immediate alerts specific to their child through innovative tools.

“The integration to our learning management system, Schoology, is invaluable. PowerSchool is providing us with an intuitive tool to have ease of grade transfer between both systems and powerful reporting features,” notes Sarnes. Engagement with families will improve through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

The new solution will provide district administrators with better control over student data, and also still allow families to utilize Schoology to view course content.

“We are looking forward to a simplified scheduling process, easier onboarding of new students, ability to view a student’s GPA; and down the road, integration with all the systems we currently use,” said Sarnes.
PowerSchool is supporting the mission of Perrysburg Schools to ensure students achieve their greatest potential.
