By: | February 20, 2019

PowerSchool, a leading provider of K-12 education technology solutions, announced that PowerSchool SIS, its award-winning student information system, was selected by the Alabama State Department of Education to provide services for 750,000 students at public schools and districts throughout the state.

PowerSchool SIS is an award-winning student information system for educational institutions that powers school operations with innovative, easy-to-use technology that plays a central role in K-12 education. PowerSchool SIS manages student information — including grades, attendance records, and more — and is used by educators, students, and parents to increase engagement, simplify reporting, and drive student growth.

“Handling student records securely and accurately is an incredibly important part of the Alabama State Department of Education’s responsibility to students, parents, and schools,” said Eric G. Mackey, Ed.D, Alabama State Superintendent of Education. “We believe PowerSchool will help Alabama upgrade its SIS to create a system that is safer, faster, and more efficient.”

“We’re proud to be selected by the Alabama State Department of Education to provide our industry-leading PowerSchool SIS and help unlock potential for students throughout the state,” said Hardeep Gulati, PowerSchool’s CEO. “We appreciate the hard work by the selection committee and look forward to continue serving the students of Alabama while growing and hiring locally.”

PowerSchool’s local teams provide a deep understanding of Alabama’s educational requirements — due to longstanding experience in Alabama, which has previously used PowerSchool’s iNow SIS product — and are available to assist districts and school boards in their operations. With more than 2,000 employees worldwide and 80 employees and contractors across Alabama, PowerSchool is committed to giving educators and administrators secure, unified technology that works best for their community.
