Institutions want Canvas to sync grade information with the PowerSchool SIS. PowerSchool is widely adopted, especially amongst K12 institutions, and this sort of integration would save instructors lots of time and effort.


User goals

As an admin:

  • I can configure the "Post grades to SIS: PowerSchool" feature at the account or subaccount level


As an instructor:

  • I can create assignments and specify that they should push grades into PowerSchool
  • I can post grades for PowerSchool-linked assignments in a course to PowerSchool using a button in the Canvas gradebook


This feature was released into production Canvas on 1/10/15. Read the release notes about this feature. See the PowerSchool Canvas Guides lesson.
