I've used PowerSchool as a teacher for 7 years. I use it everyday, all day for multiple uses.

Pros

I like that I am able to track student attendance, grades, and assignments. Additionally, I like that I can access my grade books from previous years for reference. Even with the update, I can continue to access my past Grade books. With the program, I can also create attendance sheets and seating charts quickly and efficiently. Historically grades and attendance are stored within the program, in addition to state and national assessment scores. Student demographic information and familial information can be loaded as well. With administrative rights, one can access even more information; including the master schedule and teacher schedules. As well as, the student look up for the entire school or the entire school district.

Cons

I do not like the new grade book update. The format is difficult to use and a time waster. As a teacher, I spend a lot of time inputting grades, therefore anything that is redundant is an irritant. I see how they attempted to make the program almost more like an app in some ways, but that format doesn't make sense for a grade book.

Good tool to track progress

Pros

The tool is good in help sharing the report of the students and to keep a track of overall academics. The tool is simpler and easy to use and can be customized as per the needs

Cons

At times there are login issues that are encountered for unknown reasons specially on Android devices

Decent at first

Overall, it is a pretty good program with a lot of potential. I think it lacks in some features that would be fairly basic and would help to make this a better program for many teachers.

Pros

There are a number of different pre-entered selections to use for testing and whatnot, so that is helpful. Inputting your own is also not that difficult to do.

Cons

You can only search selections by one parameter at a time. I can either look stories up and see whether or not they cover the necessary standard I need to cover or I can look up the standard and hope a story covers that standard more than once. I wish there was a way to cross reference this. Also, there isn't a way to incorporate your own rubric on writing questions. You must choose whether it is a 4, 3, 2, or 1 point rubric. In my state, we have a three part, 10 point rubric and would be helpful to grade students' responses the same way that the state test and my classroom grades them.

Not as Intuitive as Other Platforms

I am pleased with PowerSchool Unified Classroom and recommend it. Just prepare to spend a little extra time learning all the nuances.

Pros

PowerSchool provides all the key features for classroom management. It allows teachers to post and assess assignments, communicate with other faculty/staff, and interact with parents/students. The interface is attractive and engaging as well.

Cons

For me, the learning curve was greater with this software than with similar programs. I'm not sure why, but it took me a while to get the hang of it. Maybe it's because I was so used to a previous system that it just took a while to adjust, but I don't think so -- I usually learn new software pretty quickly. PS Unified Classroom is great, but it did take me a while to get the hang of it.
