We’re Making It Easier To Access The Information You Need

Olentangy Local Schools has been working hard to implement a longtime vision of streamlining our methods of sharing information with parents and families. We want you to easily be able to access the information you need, when you need it. To that end, we are pleased to announce the upcoming launch of our new district website. The new site is more dynamic, responsive, and easier to navigate. It includes features that make accessing the important information you need a simple process, regardless of the device you use to get the information. The new website will also have a mobile communications app for iPhone and Android phones, so no matter where you are, you can quickly access what you need.

The new website will go live later this summer and feature a colorful and uncluttered design. We’ve also streamlined the process to access student information by placing more content in PowerSchool, the district’s web-based student information system. In addition to attendance information and student grade history, you will now be able to find the following in PowerSchool:

  • All school report cards, including elementary school report cards. The report cards will appear as a new tab in PowerSchool, which will be accessible via the Parents Resources page on the website, accessible no matter where you are by using the app from any device.
  • All gifted plans for students, if applicable.
  • All school fees and lunch fees will now be paid via a new tab in PowerSchool. This system will replace the previous SPS EZ Pay program, which required a separate login password.
  • All bus pick-up schedules and bus number assignments will appear under a new tab in PowerSchool.

Furthermore, we are expanding the use of Schoology, an innovative communication tool that makes it easier for teachers to share academic content with both students and parents. Schoology connects students and teachers together in a secure academic environment as well as gives parents access to the conversation via our app on any device.

Look for more detailed information to be sent to you regarding instructions for setting up a PowerSchool and Schoology account in July. We look forward to sharing our new and improved site and systems with you!
