PowerSchool SIS and Schoology Information

  • In the summer of 2021, District 300 officially stopped using both Infinite Campus and Haiku/PowerSchool Learning and transitioned to different platforms.

    Infinite Campus previously served as District 300’s Student Information System (SIS) where parents could review student information, including attendance, schedules, and bus routes. Infinite Campus has officially been replaced in District 300 by the PowerSchool Student Information System, which the district will refer to as PowerSchool SIS

    Haiku / PowerSchool Learning both previously served as District 300’s Learning Management System (LMS), where students and parents could view classes, assignments, and coursework. Haiku / PowerSchool Learning has officially been replaced in our district by Schoology.  

    Effective immediately parents can stop using both Infinite Campus and Haiku/PowerSchool Learning for District 300 purposes as both platforms will no longer be updated. District 300 recommends removing the Infinite Campus and Power School Learning apps from your smartphone and removing any associated bookmarks you may have saved within your internet browser. 

    The district has created a one-page document to highlight the features of both PowerSchool SIS and Schoology.

  • PowerSchool SIS 

    PowerSchool SIS is the platform parents can use to view attendance, report cards, transportation (including bus number, route number, pickup/dropoff times, and location), student ID information, middle school team information, and student locker information for secondary students.
