Mumbai: Pearson Schools has introduced Power School, a web-based student information system, in eight of its schools.
The PowerSchool technology is the fastest-growing and the most-widely used web-based student information system, supporting 10 million students in 50 states in the US and in over 65 countries. The technology uses ERP to help parents and teachers keep track of students’ safety, academic performance and behaviour at school.
The Power School ERP gives parents, teachers and students easy access to school circulars, fee payment, and student assessments. Overall, the technology provides the full range of features like attendance management, tracking and notification, optional seating chart formats with student photos, discipline management and reporting, and assessment reporting needed by administrators at the school level, thus systematically updating parents on all activities of their child.
At present, the technology has been implemented in the Amanora School, Pune; Hillside School, Hyderabad; Manipal School, Mangalore; MadhavaKripa High School, Manipal; SG International Public School, Amara Jyothi Public School, Cambridge Public School, and Shishya BEML Public School in Bangalore.
Among other services offered are the SMS alert service that ensures that parents receive all updates and announcements related to the events in the school, circulars, and a GPRS service in collaboration with North Star which is activated in school buses to trace all bus routes, thus assuring parents of their children’s safety.
The new technology has also introduced easy and safe online payment of fees, and for books and uniforms through PayUPaisa. This enables parents to engage with the school from anywhere in the world.
