Profile Types

A school district's PowerSchool Special Programs database includes a set of profiles that comprise the basic filing system of data on staff, classes, locations, districts, and students. Profiles contain the most current information and are distinct from IEP documents. In most instances, data flows back and forth between profiles and documents. Additionally, a subset of information tracked in profiles is typically imported from your district's SIS.

You can access details for each profile type directly in the software (Administration, Configuration, Profile Types) and using the links in this table, provided you have the required login and security access.
