Release - May 2024

PowerSchool Unified Insights version is available as of 5/18/2024.

New features



Attendance and Behavior data retrieval for MTSS intervention goals

Attendance and behavior (incidents and actions) goal data can now be set for the intervention plan:

  1. Select a plan goal.

  2. Click Set Goal Data.

  3. Choose the Attendance or Behavior data type.

  4. Make your selections and click Set Data.

  5. Click Save Goal.

Interventions linked with the plan will auto-populate fields with preset values.

Modified prepopulated fields

While retrieving data for attendance and behavior (incidents and actions), if the user modifies a prepopulated field, they are given the option to delink the set goal data reference from the plan. Delinking means the intervention is no longer linked to the plan and will behave independently. The intervention is prepopulated based on whatever parameters the user saved after delinking.

Note that the system ensures district-specific data retrieval for multi-district tenants and district-specific retrieval for single-district tenants. Detailed options and parameters cater to various user preferences for defining time frames and behavior types.

MTSS goal score refresh

A new “Refresh Data“ button was added to the intervention Goals section to refresh goal scores based on the configuration of the plan’s goal data or the settings used to retrieve goal data. You can refresh goal scores for every meeting date.

Enhanced visibility for state-level plans



In a multi-district tenant, state-level users with access to create state-level plans can now select the districts where they want the plan to be visible. When users select the State-level checkbox to make the plan visible in multiple districts, all available districts are listed in a dropdown menu. Users can then select specific districts from the dropdown, making the plan visible only to users within those districts. Plans will be invisible to users outside the selected districts.
