-Nicole Shanklin, Director of Elementary Education and PowerSchool Lead, Belleville Public Schools.
BPS is expanding its PowerSchool investment in order to help the district obtain tighter tech integrations via unified solutions. PowerSchool solutions will offer access to secure data analytics dashboards supporting BPS’ need to share key aggregate-level student information with the proper stakeholders, including parents, the school board, and others across the community. The end goal is to enhance staff experience and help students grow academically, socially, and behaviorally.
Prior to PowerSchool, BPS used various, disparate services for everyday instruction, such as Google Classroom*. To enhance functionality and communication among stakeholders regarding assessment data, the district searched for technology solutions that provided a grade pass-back option to the district’s SIS. The goal was to have graded assignments that would sync to the district gradebook, leading to greater articulation in consideration of student growth and academic needs. In response, BPS pivoted to PowerSchool’s Schoology Learning, and PowerSchool SIS, to solve these synchronization issues.
“We expect Belleville Public Schools to see substantial improvements to its operations through the addition and implementation of its newest PowerSchool solutions, From attracting and developing new teachers, to assessments and standards tracking, we’re excited to provide BPS with exceptional education technology to empower and advance the district’s instructional capabilities.”
