Grant Wood AEA and the PowerSchool Hosting team believe that they have resolved the problems that led to the PowerSchool performance issues we’ve experienced through the past two weeks.
ICCSD’s PowerSchool instance has been operating normally today. We will be monitoring the performance of this system to identify and address any further problems.
ICCSD has been struggling with intermittent PowerSchool performance issues since the beginning of the year, with consistent problems with access and performance throughout the past week. As our site is hosted by PowerSchool itself, we’ve been working through Grant Wood AEA to address these issues on the hosting end.
PowerSchool has built a new server instance that they believe will rectify the issues we’ve faced, and will be transitioning our site to the new server this afternoon (11/7/19) at 4:30 PM. We do not have an ETA for an outage during this transition, but staff, parents, and students should expect that the outage will last into the evening of 11/7.
Once the transition is completed, we expect that our PowerSchool performance will be restored to normal, and that problems with grading, attendance, portal access, and synchronizations will be resolved.
