Pearson has announced the launch of PowerSchool® for Parents (opens in new tab) and PowerSchool for Students (opens in new tab), two new free apps for the iPhone®, iPod® touch and iPad®. These apps provide real-time access to attendance, grades, assignments, scores and more to the students and their parents whose schools use the PowerSchool web-based student information system.
Both apps were designed for fast “one-thumb” browsing, allowing students and parents to quickly access the latest school information from any location. For parents, a “Live Feed” streams all information for all students for the current week in a single view. Integration with social media sites, Facebook and Twitter, allows students and parents to proudly share official grades and scores with their friends and family.
