PowerSchool 7.9.1 is Now Available!

I just updated to this one today. Almost had a heart-attack. I upgraded to this one earlier because of the whole Java issue. This update takes a lot longer to upgrade than other upgrades. A long time to boot up like more than 30 minutes to complete the updates.

I’m glad that it all worked.

One additional piece of advice don’t start doing updates on a Monday Asia time. Pearson Premium support isn’t open until Tuesday our time.
