PowerSchool CDNPowerSchool recognizes the concerns of our on-premise customers regarding the use of, the Content Delivery Network (CDN) used for our PowerSchool Design System, and potential loss of navigation during an internet outage if the elements are not cached by the browser. Under normal operation, the browser will cache needed content from the CDN and be available as long as the cache has not cleared. To address this possible situation, we have added a local backup that ships with PowerSchool SIS as a failover to prevent loss of navigation through the new header bar or other user interface elements that utilize the CDN. 
SystemPowerSchool SIS will now use ETags for the cache management of content under the images and scripts directories. The cache duration of files under these folders has been lowered from 24 hours to 4 hours to allow changes to be seen faster while lowering throughput requirements.
