IMPORTANT: Email issue with PowerTeacher Gradebook

PowerSchool has changed the way in which emails are delivered through the system. Formerly, teachers could put their own address in the 'Reply To' slot.This is no longer the case. Instead, all emails are sent from with a little notice that the email was sent 'on behalf of' a link to the teacher email. This setting is not adjustable by the district.

The 'on behalf of' means that a parent can no longer simply hit reply to and have the reply go to the teacher. Instead, parents would want to click the blue link to the teacher email address to initiate a reply.

Parents who find that these emails are going to spam should 'whitelist' the address in their email settings.

ITD is currently looking at alternative products that integrate with PowerSchool that restore the 'reply to' function.
