Introducing PowerTeacher 2.5
PowerTeacher version 2.5 is ready for back-to-school 2012! This new version has several enhancements to attendance. The multi-day attendance grid lets you see student attendance across multiple days and is available in both PowerSchool and PowerTeacher. Other major enhancements to the attendance module include an optional seating chart with free-form and standard drag-and-drop formats.
The new seating chart available in PowerTeacher makes setting up seating charts and taking attendance easy and intuitive. New students show up immediately and the student photos make it easy to configure classroom settings, including furniture, with free-form and standard drag-and-drop formats. Taking attendance and adding a comment is as easy as a single-click.
Multi-day Attendance View

New Design for Web Portal
PowerTeacher 2.3 comes with a fresh, new look for the web portal. Extraneous design embellishments have all been removed, helping to focus on the task at hand. The result of these improvements is faster performance when going from page to page. In fact, performance testing in this new design shows speed improvements of anywhere from 20 to 40% faster than the previous version.
A new notifications feature will alert teachers to four different types of gradebook events: Student Birthdays, Added Students, Dropped Students, and Administrator Logins.
"What is most amazing to me is the quality, stability and rich features that come with PowerTeacher. We rarely get even a phone call requesting support on this product. When we do, we can confidently say that it must be something to do with the way the teacher has set up their gradebook. I would have never imagined that things would be running this smoothly at this point in time!"
