Account balances in the PowerSchool Mobile app can look confusing, so we wanted to clarify it for everyone.

When you have a negative number, which should be displayed in green, that means you actually have money in the student account. When you have a positive number, which should be displayed in red, that means you owe money to the student account.

This amount shows money owed to the student account

So it’s best to ignore whether a number is positive or negative and go with what colour it is instead. Red = you owe money, green = there is money in the account.

If you ever have questions about your student account, please call the Business Office or email us at
