Custom PowerSchool Solutions to Help Districts Thrive

Capitol Tech Solutions has provided custom development services directly to PowerSchool since 2007. Starting in their State Compliance Department, CTS’s developers wrote state compliance reports in over 20 states, including California, Washington, Arizona, Mississippi, Idaho, Utah, South Carolina, Texas, and Ontario, Canada, Our PowerSchool developers are intimately familiar with the SIS database structure, and have written thousands of queries to pull attendance, roster, transcript, special program, and other data available out of PowerSchool. Through direct integration into the state compliance team, we became experts in JavaScript, Angular.js, Oracle SQL, and the PowerSchool application.

In 2013, we expanded our relationship with PowerSchool and engaged as the lead technical contact for the PowerSchool API and partner program. Through this program, we developed PowerSchool customizations that districts install through plug-ins, and assisted many partners with PowerSchool integrations. We continue this vital role for PowerSchool today as they move towards a unified classroom experience.

We have been looking for a company to resolve our issues and design custom pages to use within PowerSchool. Capitol Tech Solutions listened to our requests, designed the pages needed, and made suggestions within the process to help in the custom process. Their PowerSchool Developer was outstanding! We were able to have our custom page requested, designed and implemented within a two day process. Way to Go!

We came to CTS with little more than an idea. They were quick and efficient in creating our customization. Brady and Chuck provided support and feedback throughout the process, as well as after they delivered the product.

Custom PowerSchool Plug-In Development

Our team is the lead technical resource for the  PowerSchool ISV Partner Program, and over the past 5 years have engaged with hundreds of PowerSchool partners throughout the globe to integrate cutting edge applications through  Plug-ins and PowerQueries into the PowerSchool ecosystem. Not only did we advise ISV partners technically, but also actively engaged in developing customizations for the partners, so their applications integrate seamlessly with PowerSchool. These integrations can easily be deployed as a plug-in, which gives both districts and companies an easy path to integration.

We also engage school districts directly, assisting with their processes in integrating their various systems, including transportation, mobile apps, library software, HR software, special education tools, counselor tools, and other systems school districts require on a daily basis. We serve as the Database Administrator (DBA)for our district clients and replace the need for a full time FTE Database Administrator. Not only do districts save money, but our firm provides a range of services, from  SIS database experts to data visualization developers, that provide the tools IT managers rely on to demonstrate their district’s successes to school boards.

Our PowerSchool Expertise

Capitol Tech Solutions has been consistent in providing quality resources who specialize in state reporting. Aside from the internal PowerSchool Compliance team, they have by far the most extensive knowledge of K12 compliance needs for PowerSchool. Their involvement with state reporting goes back ten years with the product. In addition to compliance they also have comprehensive experience across all of the PowerSchool product having developed numerous custom features for school districts as well as being the selected company to work closely with our other certified partners to help them integrate.

Since the beginning, Capitol Tech Solutions has shown an incredible ability to solve the unique technical challenges PowerSchool presents. Their success stems from their experience in creating reports in state compliance and developing difficult SQL queries to extract all PowerSchool data. Their team was always used as a go to resource when difficult problems needed to be completed on time. I strongly recommend the CTS for you data, customization, or integration projects, and are confident, based on their excellent work within multiple groups at PowerSchool, that they will be an excellent resource for your team.
