Huh?  PowerSchool is an SIS (Student Information system)....has nothing to
do with K12LTSP.  It's web based so why wouldn't it run?  The PowerSchool
server would probably need to be a windows or mac machine, but beyond
that...no worries.  Another great alternative to PowerSchool that we use
here at our school is Web2School.... http://www.wickedgoodsoftware.com 
I run it on an Ubuntu server....it too is platform independent...uses a
simple Java client...easy to use.  I've run Web2School client on K12LTSP,
Edubuntu, and Resara Linux terminal servers...works great.
