PowerTeacher Pro Information
This page contains links to resources that will help ACPS teachers learn more about the new PowerTeacher Pro gradebook.
What is PowerTeacher Pro?
PowerTeacher Pro is a new, web-based gradebook for PowerSchool that ACPS is deploying for the 2017-2018 school year. This gradebook has been designed from the ground up to be a more intuitive gradebook that works the way teachers work. It has been engineered to be used completely within the same web browser you use to access PowerSchool. This means no more reliance on Java which translates to accessibility on devices not previously capable of running the full gradebook.

Do I Still Need the Old PowerTeacher Gradebook?
Your PowerTeacher Pro gradebook does not provide access to classes and content (including grades) for past years when you weren't using PowerTeacher Pro. If you need to go back and view gradebook information for 2016-2017 and earlier, you will need to launch your old PowerTeacher Gradebook (PTG). So, don't delete that gradebook launcher just yet.
