“School choice” used to be quite simple: you chose to relocate or your child would go to a less-than-ideal school. Recently, school choice and open enrollment programs have grown and expanded across the nation. These lottery systems aim to provide a selection process and equal opportunities for students by randomizing the selection of students to certain schools rather than just having them be assigned based on home address. What makes the “ideal” district in your area could vary greatly – community involvement, technology access, low student to teacher ratios, etc.

With these two apps, users will see live attendance, assignments, scores, grades, school announcements, and more, right from their teachers’ grade books.

In all aspects of life, technology is advancing and continuing to dominate our society. These technological advancements aspire to streamline our daily tasks, while assisting with responsibilities and providing a variety of new capabilities.
The healthcare industry is generally one of the slowest industries to accept change and adopt these technological innovations. Yet in the last few years, healthcare has proven to be rapidly catching on to these developments in hospitals, physicians’ offices, and clinics, and now academic health centers are adapting to electronic student medical records.

PowerSchool University (PSU) 2013 has come to an end and we’re about ready to enjoy the last few weeks of summer—but first, one last piece of unfinished business! This year, we asked PSU attendees to show us “What does PSU mean to you?” with a Facebook photo contest. After dozens of submissions and hours of debate, we’re finally ready to announce the winners…..

While recently watching the movie The Incredibles with my nephew, I couldn’t help but to think to myself just how many — dare I say it — “incredible” aspects there are to the character Elastigirl. With the power to literally stretch herself, Elastigirl becomes an undercover superhero (alongside her family) who ends up saving the world.
I believe Elastigirl’s most incredible characteristic is being a parent to her three kids. When two of her children discover that they also have super powers, she helps them develop and master their new-found talents …
I am proud to be a part of the PowerSchool team. While I am not one of the 12 million student users or an educator at a school, I do have the opportunity to get a glimpse into this amazing student information system because of my job.
Over time, I have come to the conclusion that PowerSchool is a “gift that keeps on giving,” with a large part of the “giving” stemming from the many partnerships that Pearson has formed along the way. I am in awe at the frequent increase …
If you’re employed by a school system in any capacity and you don’t frequently hear of food allergies, you’re most likely alone. Completely alone. Because food allergies are everywhere, and certainly more so than in the past. According to the CDC, “the prevalence of food allergies increased from 3.4% in 1997–1999 to 5.1% in 2009–2011,” among children aged 0–17 years. In addition, the CDC notes that the school environment is of particular concern, as “studies show that 16%–18% of children with food allergies have had allergic reactions to accidental ingestion of food allergens …
Outside of headlining sports stories (e.g. the NBA playoffs and the MLB steroid debacle, to name a couple of current topics), it’s difficult to find a sports issue more widely discussed in the news than concussions. With concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBI), literally anyone, of any age, and any skill level can be impacted. But, it’s young children and teens that consistently come up as those who need to be protected the most. When putting safety protocols in place, we often think of football and other high contact sports. …
