Is anyone else getting a Duplicate Migration Report Error on their PowerSchool?  I have looked at the article on how to fix it and I just can't seem to figure out what the real error is.  Is this something that needs to be fixed before school begins?

Hmmm. I haven't see this error. Where is it appearing? What version of PS are you on? I'm still on 11.0.5.

We are 11.0.5 also and the error is on the top of my page when I log in.

Yes, we are seeing this red banner across the top of our PS also.  Version 12.0.1

When I click on the report it says:
The following state custom fields have been duplicated in the U_SchoolStaffUserFields extension from the S_NE_USR_X table.

I have 10 staff fields.

I was a bit confused by the KB article 81115 instructions.

- I do not know if the correct data is in the S_* table or U_* table (per KB article)

I put a help ticket in with PS but I have not heard anything back  yet.

We recently purchased SchoolForms through Phoenix Learning. Anyone else using this plugin for online registration?

Our registrar is attempting to break up a few very large study halls into smaller sections. Since you can't mass unenroll students from a course section, this will be a long, tedious process for her. I found a post on PSUG from 2006 that said you can just delete a course section and everyone in that section will be dropped from the course. Then you can re-create sections and mass enroll students.

This seems too easy and like it would leave orphan files. Has anyone done this? Can you just delete the section form the Edit Section screen? (School Setup > Section > Edit Section > Delete Section).

Or do I delete the section through DDA? (DDA > CC table > SectionID=### >  Modify Records > Delete section)

Is there a better way to unenroll about 160 students from course sections? Anything to avoid one-by-one modify schedule option!

We had a similar situation last year, Jane. Here is the method we used to handle moving the student enrollments fairly quickly (deleting the section wasn’t an option for us as the term had already started; I would be concerned about ghost enrollments in your situation and advise against deleting the section with students enrolled):
Create all of the needed sections so they are ready to enroll students.
Then from the large section page that lists all of the students use the checkboxes to select a group of students needing moved to a specific section. Use the Drop and re-enroll button to move the group of students together to the correct section. Repeat this drop and re-enroll with each group of students from the original large section until it is down to only one of the smaller sections.
Good luck!

That looks very easy. Thanks, Amanda! :-)

What date does your registrar use when pre-registering new students for the fall? Our registrar wants to use an enrollment date as the day she adds the students to PowerSchool. (Usually the current day.) She says she has always done this. But during the past couple of weeks, the student has changed to Transferred Out status when she tries to pre-register them. I am trying to encourage her to use the first day of the fall term but she says she can't manage them as she usually does. As a private school, the president and principal always want to know an exact enrollment number at any time. We are using an "Admissions" school this year. I haven't run EOY yet but we have committed the new schedule. What date do you use for enrollment date? TIA.

As you know we are also a private school system. We just have always used the first day of school as the pre-enrollment date.  We like to try to keep it simple and that has worked for us.

It makes things a bit difficult in between school years because you have to remember to do "/" to include pre-registered students in your enrollment counts.  

Assuming you have completed the Run Year End Process, I'd suggest using the first day of school for 2018-2019 as the enrollment/entry date.  That will keep everything consistent relative to entry/exit dates come the end of 2018-2019 and help avoid school and section enrollment errors from coming up down the road.

As you note, that does give you some odd status issues (frequently they show up as Pre-Registered even if the Run Year End Process has been completed).  You can fix that for affected kids via the /tech/usm option and changing the Enroll_Status field value to 0.  After submitting the new value, the student will show up on the "live" side and be included in current enrollment numbers.

I just completed EOY process and our incoming freshmen are now active (no longer pre-register status). Could our registrar enroll new students without using the pre-register option? Choose an Entry Code of OE (Original Entry) rather than Pre-Register with an entry date of first of school? We just want all the new students to show as active for reports. TIA.

Is anyone else having a problem with the NSSRS Student Summary Attendance getting stuck in Report Que in PowerSchool?

I have tried it with the entire school and with just a couple of grades and it will not finish processing.

I have restarted ReportWorks and that finally stopped it (it would not cancel either).

Any thoughts?

Thank you

The reason was the PS update that came out on 6-8-18 - PS was supposed to apply the update but did not - even though I reported the issue to them earlier in the week.

Aimee Muehling let me know that this is known PS issues, they released the fix late Friday. The fix came down with the security update. If you run the latest release that will fix the problem see below

It is now corrected.

I am losing my mind over this stupid report!  I have never had a problem with it before but this year I cannot get it to pull grades for my 9-12 students.  I have check my stored grades and they all appear correct.  I have checked my Reporting Store Codes at the district level.  The curious thing is that I have students that transferred in mid year.  The grades that were hand entered from their previous school appear on the report but not 1 grade for a student that has been here the entire year appears on the report.

Any suggestion will be very greatly appreciated!

I just had the same problem with new students that transfer in with their grades appearing.  I just had to delete them. 

Can someone tell me the 4th, 5th and 6th grade PE Course code we are suppose to use.

Make sure your store codes are entered individually at the district.

Thank you for responding!

I am confused by your comment about deleting those grades.  Why did you do that?

I believe the correct code for elementary PE is 080125

I do have my store codes set up individually.


I deleted those grades because they were historical grades that belong to that student before they came into our school.  We could not report them.

Are you course codes year long or by quarter?  If year long they belong all in one file like this - Q1,Q2,S1,Q3,Q4,S2

Not sure after this why they would not pull.

My teachers are complaining that PTP allows you to override a final percentage grade but it doesn't change the letter grade to match the new grade. Is this different from PowerGrade? I don't remember getting these complaints last year. Is there something teachers need to do after overriding the final percent? TIA

If the percent is being overridden then they must also change the letter grade to match.  They are "overriding" the grade that means both letter and percent grade.


Thanks, Suzanne. I guess it makes sense, but wish it would grab the correct letter grade when a percent change is made. :-P

Is there a report or way for teachers to print only the final grades for their classes in PowerTeacher Pro? They tell me they can't find a report that doesn't print all grades for the term. 

It's finals week, of course, and everyone is scrambling. We're also having network problems. :-P

Have teachers go to a class then click on Grading on Left side of screen. Go down to Comment Verification and click on that it will open a page with students Term final grade only.  They can print that page for each class.


Duh! I knew about that page. Thank you, Suzanne! It's a rough day ...
