Pearson has announced the launch of PowerSchool for Parents and PowerSchool for Students, two new free apps for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Now available on the App Store, these apps provide real-time access to attendance, grades, assignments, scores, and more to the 10 million students and their parents whose schools use PowerSchool, Pearson's web-based student information system.
Both apps were designed for fast, easy "one-thumb" browsing, allowing students and parents to quickly access the latest school information from any location. For parents, a "Live Feed" streams all information for all students for the current week in a single view.
Integration with social media sites Facebook and Twitter allows students and parents to share official grades and scores with their friends and family.
To use the apps, students must attend a school that uses PowerSchool version 7.1 or higher. For more information about PowerSchool, please visit www.PearsonSchoolSystems.com.
