Removed Features/Future Deprecation
In the PowerSchool SIS 2021 spring back-to-school release, the New Experience introduced in PowerSchool SIS version 220.127.116.11 will be the only look that is available for the PowerSchool SIS Admin and PowerSchool SIS Teacher portals. The "classic look" will no longer be available. All users not already using the New Experience will be automatically transitioned. We are providing notifications in advance so that districts have ample time to test and make changes to any impacted customizations.
PowerSchool SIS is comprised of several software components, each versioned independently from one another. This allows for greater flexibility of component updates as new features and bug fixes become available. Some updates may include dependencies between components. These dependencies will be communicated and built into the component update installers to prevent PowerSchool SIS from being configured incorrectly. The following table identifies the version number for each PowerSchool SIS component in this release compared to the previous release:
