Transition to Powerschool
Posted on 02/25/2020

The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) has initiated a transition towards an improved electronic IEP process. SDUSD has expanded its partnership with PowerSchool to include their "Special Programs" IEP management system.

The new PowerSchool IEP system will enhance collaboration across users and parents, streamline case management responsibilities, and increase compliance with the California Department of Education.

San Diego Education Association (SDEA) and SDUSD plan to release joint communications/updates through the transition process specific to the phased release of PowerSchool's "Special Programs" IEP management system. These communications will be posted in SDEA's newsletter as well as on SDUSD's web site.

SDUSD plans to have PowerSchool's "Special Programs" IEP system prepared for full release and all users trained by September 2020. At that time, the current SEAS system will go dark and no longer be accessible. Lastly, SDUSD will release dates, times and locations for public forums related to the transition to PowerSchool. These forums will allow an opportunity for "Question and Answer" discussions and provide a venue to deliver additional updates. SDUSD looks forward to working collaboratively with all stakeholders during this transition to a new IEP management system.
