PowerSchool SIS

PowerSchool SIS version is available as of January 26, 2023. This release is considered a minor feature/maintenance release. When the installers are available for download, an announcement will be posted on PowerSchool SIS Release Notification on PowerSchool Community.

New Features and Enhancements

Feature or Product Area


PowerSchedulerNew PowerScheduler desktop build engine installers are now available in Engine Download for both macOS and Windows OS. These new installers will work on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Users can continue to work with the 32-bit engine, but any issues that arise with a desktop engine will be fixed in the 64-bit version. Only the 64-bit desktop version will be included with PowerSchool SIS, starting with this release.
LocalizationGrade Levels can be localized in more areas of PowerSchool SIS. The following areas have been improved:
  • The Health Screening pages allow for Grade Levels -3, 13, 14, and 15.
  • The Grade Level text in the Health Screening pages is now localizable.
  • Student screens have been updated to show the localized text. For example, previously a Kindergarten student would show as 0 on the detail header on the student screens. The value will now display as K.
  • The Grade Level category on the Localize PowerSchool Data page now includes all grades based on the school's low and high grade values.
PhotosWhen utilizing a data share, such as in an array, PowerSchool will attempt to use PowerShell to determine the photo location. Previously PowerSchool would create a VBS script that was executed which caused some security solutions to generate a security alert.
SetupThe Reporting Term Setup page has been improved to provide a table view of the reporting term setup. The detailed view lists:
  • Term Name
  • Reporting Term
  • Start Date
  • End Date
  • Suppress Letter Grade/Percent
  • Calendar Days
    • The number of days between the Start and End Date
  • In-Session Days
    • The number of in-session days between the Start and End Date

This replaces and improves on the Show Reporting Term Setup Dates customization created by Jason Springel of PowerSchool.

PowerSchool Components

PowerSchool SIS comprises several software components, each versioned independently. Independent versioning 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 misconfigured. The following table identifies the version number for each PowerSchool SIS component in this release compared to the previous release:
