Upcoming Scheduling Workshops at ESU 10
Cost: $35 (lunch included)

PowerScheduler is a very powerful tool that can save a lot of time for whoever setups the schedule and enrolls students. Everyone should be using PowerScheduler to have students enter their course requests for next year. PowerScheduler can use these requests to enroll students into their courses. The workshops are broken down into three areas:

PowerScheduler: Build & Load overview - Thursday, February 8th   
This workshop will cover the initial setup that is needed to get the scheduling process started, including the setup of the student request screens.


PowerScheduler: Prepare to Build - Thursday, March 15th

This workshop will cover the complex world of a Build. A Build is where you give PS all the necessary information and it creates a schedule. If you don’t like your current schedule or your schedule is going to change for next year, letting PowerScheduler Build the schedule is an option to creating the schedule manually.


PowerScheduler: Prepare to Load - Thursday, April 12th

This workshop will show how to Load the student requests into the schedule. No matter if you are going to use this current year’s schedule (even with a few tweaks) or if you had PowerScheduler Build it, the Load process will automate enrolling students into their requested courses.

To register for these courses, click HERE and search for PowerSchool.

Also, PowerSchool will be offering scheduling workshops in Lincoln, hosted by the Diocese of Lincoln Schools. More information will be posted soon.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

We have an Enrollment Verification Object report that the school prints off and gives to each student to verify that the demographic information they have on file is correct. The school would like to print this report in batches for each grade level, but then have it order the pages by a certain course the student is taking.

For example they want to run the report for all the 9th graders but then have it order the pages by the English I course. So they would get all the Period 1 English I students sorted together then then all the Period 2 English I courses sorted together, etc... They want them by a specific class, and that class is different depending on the grade level.

Does anyone know if there is a way to do this in PowerSchool?

I don't think there is a way to print groupings by multiple periods in one pass.  You can select to sort by a specific period which will give you everyone in Mr. A's class, Ms. B's class, etc.

You might consider selecting the kids in your English I first period class, printing the Enrollment Verification report for those kids and then proceed with selecting the next period's group and the next period's group and so on.  Makes lots of little steps but about the best you can do.

On the Print Reports screen, there is an "In What Order" section. That will allow you to sort your report output by *Name (Alphabetical)
*By grade level, then alphabetical
*By period ## class as of a specific enrollment date

You cannot sort by the course (your example of  English classes) but you can sort by your 1st-period class then give to all the teachers to distribute during 1st period.

If your report does not have the student schedule on it, you can add a line with a period_info code to pull their 1st-period teacher name. We have something similar to a homeroom so I would use that if I were doing something like this.

I just learned that PowerSchool purchased E-Registration last spring. (I guess I missed an earlier announcement.) Has anyone heard how this will affect E-Registration users, since PowerSchool also owns InfoSnap? Will they be merged? Will E-Registration be phased out and moved over? I don't remember the last time I saw a bill for E-Registration ...

I am searching for recommendations of companies/people we can hire to create an object report for our High School Report Card.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Are there any other Nebraska schools that might be using Phoenix Learning or Richard James for scheduling help this year? I'd love to share expenses with another school, if possible. They've told me Richard might be working with other nearby schools. Thanks!

Yes, for two or three summers I hosted a Powerschool workshop at CLJMS. Richard was the presenter. He has a lot of knowledge.

Thanks, John. Anyone planning to use him this year who might want to try to share his travel expenses?

If anyone would host a workshop I would love to attend.

Hello.

I'm trying to create new NE Reporting Store Codes at one of the school districts I serve.  After entering a store code, I click Submit, but then a blank screen is returned. I've checked relevant setup screens at each school in the district, but I don't see any anomalies.  I've reset the tomcat service, but without any success on my original endeavor. Any suggestions?

I found the same thing at a couple districts, but was able to create it successfully at other districts. All of them are running the latest version, 11.0.3, some hosted by PS and some on the school's server.

I didn't see anything out of the ordinary at the districts where the terms wouldn't save. I contacted Tech Support and they escalated the case, #03147714.

Thanks,Wayne   I'll just wait for a resolution. 

This is a server issue and the district I was working with was hosted, so the hosting team had to run a script on the server. 

If you are experiencing this issue you need to open a case with Tech Support and reference PowerSchool SaaS case number 03150959.

Here is what was documented in the case:
-------------------------------------------------
Please run the following scripts to fix a failed table migration 

Delete as PS user 

delete from customfieldmigrationhistory where fieldsetname= 'State NE ReportingStoreCodes'; 
commit; 
delete from prefs where name = 'State_NE_ReportingStoreCodes'; 
commit; 

And then let me know so I can re-run the migration
-------------------------------------------------

FYI: I was told the terms were created, but they were just not visible. So I assume even if you couldn't see the grading terms, you could run the Grades report successfully if you created the terms correctly.

I have been working on this for 2 days and had any success.  All help appreciated.

At our High School we have 0 period and 0-1 (meets for 2 periods) period classes.  But not all students take a 0 period class.  On our report cards I want to pull the teacher name for either the 0 period or 0-1 period class, but if there is no class taken I want "No period 0 class taken" to pull.

This is the code but it is not working.
^(decode;^(*period_info;0(A);teacher_name); ;
^(decode;^(*period_info;0-1(A);teacher_name); ;
No Period 0 course taken;^(*period_info; 0(A);teacher_name)^(*period_info;0-1(A);teacher_name))

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Bev Lauby

When I go to run my report cards for the Elementary we have two different ways teachers have them listed.  By percent grade for grades 3-6 and by S/U grades for K-2.  My percent report cards are printing as they should.  When I print my K-2 report cards, I end up with a percent.  I have went into set up in system reports and changed from percent to current grade.  This gives me blank report cards.  

Is there a spot in PS that allows me to print the S/U grades?  Or is this something that the system is no longer capable of?  

Also, if there is no grades in some subjects, it gives that child a 0 instead of a dashed line.  Any ideas on fixing that?
