PowerSchool SIS

PowerSchool SIS version is available as of 4/2/2021. When the installers are available for download, an announcement will be posted on the PowerSchool SIS Release Notification page on PowerSchool Community.


Rules Engine Update - Ability to Highlight Problematic Dose

The Immunization Rules Engine can now highlight the specific vaccination dose that marks a student as not compliant.

State compliance vaccination rules must be updated to take advantage of this functionality. Updating any state compliance rules to utilize this functionality will require all districts in that state/province to be on this version of PowerSchool.

Removed Features/Future Deprecation

Legacy Look

In the PowerSchool SIS 2021 spring back-to-school release, the New Experience introduced in PowerSchool SIS version 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.

(20.11) New Experience

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:
