Norfolk County Agricultural High School adds PowerSchool SIS and PowerSchool Special Programs

PowerSchool (NYSE: PWSC), the leading provider of cloud-based software for K-12 education in North America, today announced Norfolk County Agricultural High School (Norfolk Aggie) in Walpole, MA, selected PowerSchool SIS and PowerSchool Special Programs, both part of the Student Information Cloud, to foster greater student and parent engagement through easier communication and transparency. Special Programs integrates with PowerSchool SIS avoiding extra work such as double entry for state coding. The pass back of grades and assignments to PowerTeacher Pro, built into PowerSchool SIS, enables teachers to save time and avoid unnecessary repetition.

"Every major aspect of the system works well including grading, attendance, schedule, and student and parent portals,” said Patricia Olen, Data Administrator, Norfolk County Agricultural High School. “We have a unique schedule being a vocational school, but PowerSchool SIS was able to accommodate it and other intricacies with our programming and staffing. Feedback from our users has been very positive."

PowerSchool SIS is designed to help schools manage their operations by boosting productivity, highlighting problem areas, enhancing communication, and ensuring funding with simplified state compliance reporting. With PowerSchool SIS fully implemented, Norfolk Aggie is able to utilize the mobile app and its alerts and easily integrate with Google Classroom for assignments and grades.

Special Programs will support Norfolk Aggie educators by providing staff with the ability to simplify management of crucial data and documentation, improving support for students with different needs. With multiple modules in Special Programs geared toward Special Education Case Management, Gifted and Talented, 504 Plan Accommodation, English Language Learners, and more, Norfolk Aggie will have access to key resources for the management of special education efforts across its institution.
