Has anyone tried to use powerschool to get test score information out to parents?  Our RtI team would like to put Aims Web, Achievement tests, etc. on powerschool for parents to access.  Just looking for ideas and suggestions from anyone who has tried this.  Thanks!

I created an Object Report to send out ITBS scores to parents.  You first must import or enter the test scores into powerschool and then you can create reports to send to parents.

I'm trying to help my Kindergarten teacher switch her grading to powerschool.  Does anyone have a Kindergarten report card template they are willing to share that I can show her.  Thanks!

LuAnn, I can send you one if you are interested. Email me at gboettger@westside66.org.

I have one, as well, LuAnn. My K teachers don't really give "grades" though. It's just a checklist of skills. I'd be happy to share, but it takes quite a bit of setup for the standards. Email me at pmedema@esu17.org.

I know there has been a lot of discussion on schedules.  We have rolled over to the new year and I was going to put in the new students schedules and update some of our students schedules that brought them in last minute (ha surely not our students).  Powerschool is not letting me enroll students in classes.  It is giving me an error message (Unable to create section enrollment record in database).  When I look at my courses the sections are showing up but the enrollment in saying 0.  Those students that had schedules when we rolled over are showing up that they are enrolled on their quicklook ups.  Also when I try to run teachers schedules with number of students in their classes the schedules are there but it is saying 0 enrolled.  I'm sure this is an easy step that I forgot somewhere along the line but if someone could help me out with this I would appreciate it.  Thanks!

#1 thing is to make sure your calendar is setup correctly.

Then to get the teacher schedules' class count (size) to not show zeroes try running the following special operations from System > Special Operations. 1) RebuildSchedules and Rosters 2) Reset Class Counts.

We have quarter long classes for our Jr High.  The teachers are having trouble using the grade set up in their grade book.  I'm sure it is something to do with the way I have the quarter classes set up.  If anyone can help with this it would be much appreciated!  Thanks!

While I'm on this topic I know I had trouble last spring getting 1st and 2nd quarter classes to print on the final report card.  If you have suggestions for this I would appreciate any you could give for this as well.  Thanks again for the help!

The first place to check is Final Grade Setup in PowerSchool. Do you have your Quarter final grades created in the Quarter terms for these cources? Your report card problems might have to do w/ your current problem or it might be the way you are storing your grades if the report card is pulling historical grades. Are last year's Qtr grades showing in Historical grades?

Thanks Wayne!  I checked the final grade setup, that is the problem I'm quite sure.  I just wanted to check though, if I create the quarter final grades in the quarter terms it should not affect my semester and year long classes correct? 

That is correct. Think of each "row" in Final Grade Setup as all the courses that are that length, b/c each "row" only relates to the classes that are that length. Anything you put in a term box, such as Q1, will only affect the courses that are Q1 in length. The length of a course is set in the Sections window.

I'm trying to print a report card for a 2009 graduate.  I thought the easiest way to do that would be to go to last year and print the report card.  When I went into last year it is showing me the 2009-2010 seniors.  With further looking, no matter what grade I select it is showing me this years classes.  I have done a search for last years seniors and power school is not pulling them.  I'm sure this is an easy fix but some of this power school stuff is new to me and I would appreciate some help if anyone knows what to do.  Thanks!

I have found that all I can print for past years is a transcript.
You need to look under School - pull down Graduated Students for past Seniors.  You will also need to use the / slash to pull them forward.

Hope that helps. :)


I believe you should be able to print past report cards for graduated students. Go to the school "Graduated Students" and see if you can change the Year to "08-09." If you can't, you will need to create an 08-09 year in Years & Terms.  Once you can change the year to 08-09 in Graduated Students, search for your student by putting a / in front of the student name and run the report for this student. Your report card will need to pull the grades from the Historical grades, not the Current grades.
