NEXT 2020 Update

With continuing concerns around the COVID-19 virus, and based on feedback from a number of participants, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our NEXT Conference in July. While we deeply value any opportunity to connect with our community, the health and safety of our customers, employees, and partners is our top priority. To avoid any risk or concern, we felt this was the right decision at this time.

We are working on a brand-new virtual event to be held in late July. While this will not be NEXT, we have many exciting updates to share. This virtual event will provide details about key company initiatives, including PowerSchool’s vision, roadmap, and resources to deliver continued customer success. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks and please read our FAQs below to answer some immediate questions you may have.
