Beginning December 20th all PowerSchool functions will be down for server upgrades over the winter break. This means that PowerSchool Admin, PowerTeacher, Gradebook and Parent/Student Portals should not be used.

IMPORTANT: All users they must remain off PowerSchool, even if they can still reach the login page during this time, until your district is notified that you are back up. Having to contact users to go out to prevent data corruption during the upgrade will greatly slow down the process.

If all goes well all servers should be up and PowerSchool functions restored by or before January 4th. Other functions of customizations or data exports to outside applications, such as Illuminate or food service etc, will be completed after all districts PowerSchool functionality is restored.
