PowerSchool Admin - Parent Portal Web Accounts Integration with Student Contacts

When attempting to update an existing Parent Access Account via import that has the required username and email address fields already created, that parent’s rows will fail to import if it has the account username but not the account email address or vice versa.

Workaround: Do one of the following:

    • Include both username and email address when updating an existing parent access account via import.
    • Include neither username and email address when updating an existing parent access account via import.


PowerSchool Admin - Parent Portal Web Accounts Integration with Student Contacts

When exporting data, if the contact does not have an access account, the Allow Data Access field is populated with the value FALSE, which indicates that data access is disabled. Instead, this exported value should be Null to indicate that it was not set.

Workaround: Do one of the following:

    • Do not import the Allow Data Access field for contacts without a web access account.
    • On import file, set the Allow Data Access field to null.

PowerSchool Components

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:
