PowerScheduler - Student Request Screens
Those of you who know me already know that I have very little hair left to pull out...I am working on scheduling for next year.  I am having trouble getting the student request screens to display properly.

I have run the setup and copied my registration screens from last year.  When I preview the screen and when I actually log in as a kid, it does not list the courses to choose from.  I click on the 'pencil' icon but the box that comes up does not list any classes. 

I have tried multi-class requirements, I have tried single class, etc.  I have tried different course groups as well.  Even tried firefox and IE to make sure it was not a browser issue.

Has anyone else had this issue? And better yet, how did you fix it?

I have the same issue here as well.  At first I thought it was because I had accidently generated the new scheduling year under this years container (forgot to switch year).  After deleting and recreating, I was still having the problem.  Same issue was happening on my test server.

What it boils down to is that we migrated our data from another Student Information System a few years back.  This migration included Course Numbers which contained spaces.  These spaces are not liked by PowerSchool in its current iteration.  Take a look at PowerSource ID 58045.  They want you to change the course numbers so that they do not contain spaces.  It's not the best solution but it does work.  (At least for me on my test server).  I was hoping this latest release ( would have a fix for that.  It didn't....  


Thanks.  Unfortunately our course numbers do not contain spaces...I am just about to start surfing PowerSource for other possible causes. 

Did your screens come up with all the correct messages and such, but then just not list courses when you go to the pencil icon?



Yes, everything else would show fine, just no courses listed when I clicked on the pencil icon.  Are you running an image server?  If so, recopy the scripts folder from PS server to your image server.  If not, keep us posted on your outcome.

Try re-copying your scenerio and then making it the active build. I think this occures if you copy your scenerio first and then go in and set up the screens. Crazy, but it might fix it for you

Wierd fix but it works...I created a new scenario and it worked...

Bryan, Thanks for the info

Wayne & Greg you are now my heros!!
