If your institution has PowerTeacher Pro (PTP) in place, you can set up an assignment to be sent back to PowerSchool (which is a SIS). However, you must first specify which assignment(s) in the course should be sent to PowerSchool as part of the grading process. Note: Your institution may have your assignments auto-enabled to be sent to PowerSchool. If this is the case, you can de-select assignments that you do not want to pass back to PowerSchool.

Once a graded assignment is set up to be sent to PowerSchool, theAssignment Index Page and Quizzes Index Page lets you enable or disable an assignment by clicking the SIS sync icon next to an assignment or quiz. Non-Graded assignment types cannot be sent to PowerSchool. In the Assignments Index Page, you can also disable all assignments from being synced to PowerSchool.
