PowerSchool will streamline administrative tasks for teachers.  Teachers can enter grades once into the grade book and it will automatically update the system for administrators, parents, and students.  Student rosters will automatically appear in your grade book and will always be up to date.  Final grades will automatically be calculated based on assignments and weight scales teachers initially setup.  Furthermore, the entire school will benefit from "being on the same page" as information is updated in real-time on a centralized server.  The moment a teacher marks a student's attendance, it is updated with the office staff.  Teachers can access this information "anywhere & anytime" on any Internet connected computer.  Most importantly, this entire system provides an interface that is easy to use and help is just a click away.
