We are in the process of implementing Clever in our district.  Clever wants an admin account with read only access to DDE.  I feel this is a huge security risk.  How do other districts send data to Clever?

Thanks for any input,

Is anyone else having a problem running the 2017-2018 CRDC report?  Every time I run the report, it fails.  Is there something I am missing?  I am leaving the populated fields as is:  Fall Count Date 10/1/2017 and School Year 2017-2018  I checked with another school district and their report is running fine. We are PowerSchool 12.1.1
Thanks!

We've hired several study hall moderators in the past couple of years. They moderate study halls and occasionally sub for teacher if s/he has to leave in the middle of the day.

I realized today that these study hall moderators have access to students' Quick Lookup screens (and grades) since they are set up with "Teacher" access in PowerSchool. They wanted to be able to log in to PowerTeacher for attendance and the seating charts.

Should these study hall moderators have access to students' grades and Quick Lookup screens? None of them are certified teachers. Is this a FERPA violation? Do any of you use study hall moderators? If so, what kind of access do they have? TIA

Can anyone tell me if ADVISER will automatically pull the Perkins info now or do we still need to populate the Special Programs page for Career Education reporting?

Thanks for any advise!

With Adviser NDE will be able derive participants based off of student grades sent, so you will only need to report concentrators in special programs 

This is what I heard from our ESU:

Course sections should be marked for CTE this year and historically.
I believe they will be pulling Program Facts/Career Technical Education report from your PowerSchool.
Under each section there is a pull-down next to Program that has Career Education:


Marking this year's sections will give them participants, but I believe you will need to mark courses historically  to get concentrators.

Maybe I missed something. I wasn't aware that selecting Career Education in sections is necessary.

Kris,
You can the easiest I have found is to go to the scoresheet screen click on the assignment name then when the single assignment comes up go to the gear over on the right and chose show Metrics.

Suzanne

THANK YOU SUZANNE.  I knew I'd seen it but COULD NOT find it again!!!   Merry Christmas!

We had a new teacher who was here for about a month and then took medical leave. At the time, I didn't know it was going to continue the rest of the semester and didn't add the sub in as a co-teacher. Now this teacher has resigned for medical reasons and the sub is taking over her classes. I discovered last week the sub has been logging in as the teacher since the beginning. (Yeah, my fault I didn't fix this sooner.)

What is the best way to switch the class over to the sub? I want the sub's name to show as the teacher name on report cards next week. Under Edit Section, I tried adding the sub as the lead teacher and removing the original teacher. But I got a warning about losing Gradebook data. I briefly considered editing the name of the short-term teacher, but I hate to do that.

Any suggestions? TIA.

Jane, on the sections screen for this course,  I think you can remove the sub as the co-teacher and then change the lead teacher to the sub.

Yes, you can switch the teacher, but I got a warning that I would lose that teacher's Gradebook if I deleted the teacher. That concerns me this close to the end of the semester. I think I'm going to temporarily rename the teacher account until after the end of the semester. That way, the new teacher's name will appear on the stored grades. Thanks.

Did I see some "chatter" on here last week about AutoSend not working for TestWiz?  If so could someone please try to help.  I received an email from TestWiz with a new password but it still fails to send.  Is there something else that changed with a recent update that I need to fix?

Thanks for any guidance!

Kris, you may want to contact TestWiz support as they can now pull roster data directly from the Nebraska Ed-Fi ODS using secure APIs.  You can then dump the insecure FTP AutoSend(s).

Thank you Bryan, I will do that!

To get TestWiz to pull your data from Ed-Fi, send an email to TestWiz@CerticaSolutions.com requesting Ed-Fi Rostering. Here is an email we received from Certica Solutions who manages TestWiz. 

********************
Hi All,
Yes, we can retrieve Student Roster and Class assignment data out of the Nebraska Ed-Fi ODS. This automated process is a direct pull of the data, so there is no need to maintain extracts or send files from the Student Information System. We have been switching districts over to Ed-Fi Rostering on a case-by-case basis, as we wanted folks to be aware of the change. 

Please let us know if there are districts that are interested in switching to Ed-Fi, and we will contact them to get started. Alternatively, anyone who is interested, may send an email to us at TestWiz@CerticaSolutions.com, requesting Ed-Fi Rostering.

Yours truly,
Patty

Hello!

I'm working with a contractor to get my contacts all cleaned up before we upgrade to PowerSchool 12. I was planning to upgrade during winter break but the contractor wants me to upgrade during Thanksgiving break. 

If you've upgraded to PS 12, would you recommend doing it during Thanksgiving break? (I usually run major upgrades in June or July.) I'm mostly worried about any changes to PowerTeacher Pro that could cause more stress to teachers during the last couple weeks before finals.

Is there any chance the upgrade could affect our sync with eBackpack? Just looking for any advice you might have to offer. Thanks!

You may want to wait, there is a update for 12.1 scheduled to come out in December that is suppose to be better about consolidating contacts after migration. Check out the latest PowerSource Insider video 11/5 in PowerSource for more information. I don't know about eBackpack.

Thanks, Angie. Watching Insider right now. :-) Have you already moved to 12? If so, how different is PowerTeacher Pro? I'm most worried about changing the grade book on the less confident teachers right before the end of the semester.
