I'm having issues where I can only use Ed-Fi if my customizations is turned off.  Has anyone else had this issue and have you found the solution?

You have modified the file that displays the admin start page navigation menu. That file is admin_nav_menu_left_css.txt and it is located in the Wildcard folder. You will need to delete the customized file. This could stop customizations that you currently use. Common customizations that modify this file are OneStopAttendance and automated calling programs, such as Alert Solutions. Any correctly made new customization uses page fragments and doesn't modify existing files, so pages are not broken when PS updates a page.

Is anyone using the PowerSchool SPED module?  I am seeking feedback whether good or not happy with it.

The registrar accidentally enrolled a student into the wrong school. We have an Admissions school where we are enrolling all new students for next year. They will be transferred to our main school at EOY. This student was enrolled into our current school, has an enroll_status of -1 and entry date is 8/17/2018. She has no course requests and the only record I can find in DDA is in the Students table. Can I just change her SchoolID field in DDA > Students table to the correct school? TIA.

The fields you need to change are

That is what I do


Thanks, Suzanne!

You will also want to reset the FTE as that is unique to the school and will not carry over to the new school.

I have been asked by our Curriculum Department to search for students given a ZERO for an ASSIGNMENT.

I did Special Functions > Search By Grades/Attendance & that only seems to pull the overall grade of zero for teachers who have not given any grades yet.

Has anyone been able to search for this and if so, how?

Thank you!

Does anyone have a field in PowerSchool to record the Free or Reduced Direct Certification reason?  Such as SNAP, Migrant, Foster etc.

OR if you do record that information, where do you do that?

Thanks for any guidance!!!

I record it in the application # slot. You can run a report through PowerSchool that then shows you their qualification and how they qualified. 

Perfect!  Thank you!!!

I would like to have some procedures in place to help with the validation of data submitted in NSSRS so all of the responsibility does not fall on me.  I submit the reports to NDE pulled from PowerSchool but I would like to have admin review the data to have another set of eyes looking at it.  Perhaps sign off on it.  Just curious how other schools handle it.

Thanks for any input.

I am new to Hastings, but Kathy printed out all the NSSRS reports (after October & June uploads), put them in a 3 ring notebook, attached a routing slip and had it go around to all the administrative staff to sign off that they reviewed the data.  It was a CYA measure.  However, several administrative staff admitted that they may not even open the notebook... they just sign their name.

I have spoken to NDE staff on several occasions to ask that they train administrative staff on NSSRS - the where to look, what to look for, why should they look & when should the look.

I have also asked if they can produce something that shows what all the reports are (instead of going to Validation & having to click on each drop-down separately searching for the report we might need) as a guide for the Data Stewards and Administration to know where to look and what to look for.

Sorry Bev, not really a good answer to force others to have our backs in making sure the data is good & useful.    We are all hoping to have that other set of eyes.


In Columbus Tami and I print off (make pdfs) of the reports and email them to who needs to look at it.  We make the option person verify the option list the HR guy look at the State Aid report etc.  If they don't look it is their problem they had the data. 

But when NDE contacts the Superintendent about an issue they always come to me to find an answer.

Thanks so much Kristy.  Those are all good ideas.  I'm going to give the 3 ring binder and signing off a try.  I agree that NDE needs to train admin on the reports.  I also agree it would be helpful to have something that shows what all the reports are and what and where to look for.
