I just received a call from Pearson doing a license audit for our PowerSchool numbers.  In the past we did not have to pay for kids who were enrolled in PowerSchool strictly for state reporting reasons - the non-public students receiving Title I or SPED services from our district who don't attend school here.  We just paid for the number of students we actually have attending that are 100% FTE.  Our account rep says that we now need to pay the $18 per student fee for those non-public students as well.  Has anyone else had this experience? Thanks!

Vicki,
They tell us that every year.  We have been on PowerSchool since 2001.  We never paid for them before and we fight them every year that we are not paying for them.  The audit person said she was going to send it on to our account person.  So far we are not paying for those students.  Talk with your account person and tell them the students are only on PowerSchool for State reporting purposes and you do not do anything but update the state page and extract them for reporting purposes.  You should not have to pay for them. 

I was also under the assumption schools didn't have to pay for students who were not enrolled in classes and were only entered into PS b/c of state reporting. I recently have heard of another school now being told they have to pay for these students. 

Does anyone have any documentation, such as an email, indicating they didn't have to pay for these students in the past?

I agree, and that's who I ended up talking to, our account rep.  He says they are now going to charge for them.  Mike Hernandez is the account rep for all of the Nebraska schools under 3000, and he says they just haven't audited regularly, that's why we haven't been charged in the past.  But I got a call every year asking for my numbers, so I know that's not true.  VERY frustrating.  I told him that I would contact the NE-PSUG groups and see what info I got from them.  I'm curious to hear what the account rep for the larger schools is saying...

Is anyone importing their PLAN and Terra Nova scores into PowerSchool for the NSSRS Assessment Fact National Instrument report?  I was hoping someone might have an import template already set up.
Thanks,
Vicki

The file does not have headers so make sure you don't check the box for containing headers.  If you have a mac with 10.5 you can select the file and hit space bar to show a quick view.  This does not open the file but shows the contents.  I found 3 kids missing names in mine.

Oops - Wrong area
