PowerSchool (formerly known as TIENET) is a web-based special education management system. In 2008, LBL ESD partnered with the founder to develop a then Oregon-specific TIENET model that provided ODE-compliant forms and reports for special education reporting. This model continues to be offered today as PowerSchool Special Programs. LBL ESD supports more than 80 Oregon school districts who have adopted this.

PowerSchool enables educators to document all activities from pre-referral, referral, eligibility, IEP development, IEP progress reporting to parents, and IEP revisions. The model also includes private school ISP forms, data tracking sheets, and other forms. PowerSchool has an extensive suite of reports for district administrative reporting and state reporting. Custom reports can be created on-the-fly.

PowerSchool can be integrated with a district’s student information system allowing specified data to flow between the two systems.
