PowerSchool Category Setup: Plugin Configuration


Installing the PowerSchool Plugin

In order to ensure the best experience with our integration, we recommend that your PowerSchool server is running version 9.1.1 or later. The custom category setup between PowerSchool and Schoology is not supported for earlier versions of PowerSchool.

  1. From the Configuration tab of the PowerSchool app within Schoology, download the PowerSchool plugin file for: Version 9.1.1 to 9.2.9, or Version 10 or later.
  2. Log in to PowerSchool as an admin and navigate to Plugin Management Dashboard.
  3. Click Install to add the updated plugin.
  4. Add the downloaded zip file.
    Note: Do not unzip the downloaded files before installing the plugin. The installation will not work unless the files remain in the .zip file.

  5. Click Install.
  6. Find the plugin from the list and click the enabled checkbox.
  7. A new popup displays asking for permission for the plugin to access certain data tables and columns. This is the information Schoology uses for custom categories.
  8. Click Enable.
  9. Click on the new enabled Schoology SIS Adapter Plugin.
  10. Click Data Provider Configuration.
  11. Temporarily copy the Client ID and Client Secret.
  12. Navigate back to the PowerSchool Admin App in Schoology and paste the ID and Secret into the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret fields.
  13. Click Save API Credentials to verify the connection to the new plugin.
Note: Supported custom categories are only those associated with the Lead Teacher in the PowerSchool section.
