Writing for Provo, Utah’s
The Daily Herald
, Jesse Coleman notes that computer technology has become
an important asset
both for learning and administration in Utah’s schools. One tool that’s getting a workout these days is Apple’s PowerSchool technology.
While kids use computers in classrooms to edit digital video and surf the Web, their parents of students in the Alpine School District can also check their grades online using PowerSchool, according to Coleman.
PowerSchool is an information system designed for K-12 schools and school districts. The technology enables school faculty and administration to manage student records like grades, transcripts and report cards. It also provides attendance tracking, activity and class scheduling and much more. The technology is used by more than 3,000 schools nationwide, according to Apple.
