Power School is an online-based Student Information System (SIS) used by parents, faculty and staff throughout QA. Parents can visit the site 24 hours a day, seven days a week for an immediate, up-to-date record of their child’s performance in school. Individual billing information for tuition, meals, and other fees is located here as well.
Teachers use the site to take attendance, update grades, create report cards and track student support services. In addition, health records and contact information are available for each student in case of emergency. Power School is available for parents and teachers at: school.qf.org.qa.
School and Class Stories, Individual Digital Portfolios
At Qatar Academy Primary, we are using ClassDojo to communicate with parents. This online tool allows our administrators and teachers to communicate directly with parents. Parents are able to sign up to their child’s classroom using a unique code that allows access to classroom announcements in a “Class Story”, as well as secure, private one-on-one teacher and parent communication. Further, the “School Story” provides school-wide updates, notices, and celebrations to all of our primary school families.
Seesaw is used for student digital portfolios in grades 2 - 5. This comprehensive online system allows teachers and students to “show what they know” by documenting and uploading their learning via photos, videos, audio recordings, drawings, text, and links.
