Our district is wanting to redo our course numbers in PowerSchool.  I know at sessions I have heard that to do this, we also have to change all the ones thru dda as well.  Can someone please send me the steps I  need to follow to make sure I do this all correctly?  Please!!!

Go to system>change course number.  That procedure will change it throughout the system.  Couldn't be easier. 

Hi Joan,

First off you do not want to re-number anything with DDA or you will run into issues.  What you want to do is first create your new course name and number in your catalog.  The name can be the same as your current course.  Once created, navigate to District à System à Change Course Number.  Type your current course number and your new course number and make the change so that it affects all schools on this server if you want.  Click submit and depending on how may historical records you have it should take a few minutes but this will do all the work for you.  It will change enrollment records, stored grades, etc.  Once you have all of your courses changed your catalog will be somewhat of a mess with double course names.  PowerSchool does not recommend deleting courses from the system however I know that some people including myself have deleted the old course numbers to clean up their/my catalog.  JUST MAKE SURE THE COURSES YOU DELETE ARE OLD COURSE NUMBERS YOU HAVE CHANGED AND NOT AN ACTIVE ONES!!!  AGAIN THIS IS DDA AND ONCE YOU HIT THE DELETE BUTTON ITS GONE, except for backups.  Hopefully this helps. 


I thought I had to export it all out and all that jazz so it wouldn't mess up stored grades.  Easy is great!!!

Has anyone run accross the days enrolled column being blank. From what I can gather, it should be the days absent + days present. Mine is blank. Did I do something wrong? Or did others run accross this as well.

It's supposed to be blank. They decided that was unnecessary information and the template doesn't pull it anymore.

When I loaded to the state I have an error that says too many student summary days on student summary attendance. Would love to know more about the error, but can not get it to load more info from the state on it. Any Ideas?

Ok, figured it out. CDC hours and student sum hours are incorrect. Easy fix.

I wrote a little script in SQL to find my Perkins Completers (or at least be able to find anyone who qualified without having to sort through them one at a time). I created and saved a different one for each pathway. You can just change the course numbers and school id to match yours.

I wanted to be able to pull only those students who had taken ALL of the courses, but I couldn't figure out the syntax. If someone knows that and would share, that would be great!!

SELECT S.LASTFIRST, SG.COURSE_NUMBER, SG.COURSE_NAME, SG.GRADE

FROM STOREDGRADES SG, STUDENTS S

WHERE S.ID = SG.STUDENTID
AND SG.GRADE_LEVEL >= 9
AND SG.COURSE_NUMBER IN ('201','205','2011','203')
AND SG.STORECODE IN ('S1','S2')
AND S.ENROLL_STATUS = 0
AND S.SCHOOLID = 160006
AND SG.TERMID >= 1600
ORDER BY S.LASTFIRST ASC, SG.COURSE_NUMBER ASC

Has anyone else encountered problems uploading the new National Assessment Instrument Results template?  I keep getting errors on all records.  Apparently the portal is looking for information that is not included in this report. i.e. Testing Modification and Assessment Accountable District.  These items ARE included on the STARS Assessment Fact report, but I don't see any place to enter them for this report.

I really hope I am simply missing something really stupid here. 

Any input will be GREATLY appreciated!

FYI everyone!  Got the answer from the NDE helpdesk.  On the upload page you need to change the "Data Collection" window from Year-End 2009-2010 to 2009-2010 NAI.

Guess that should have been obvious!  Huh!  Not for me!

I am trying to figure something out for the seniors. Do you have someone create a enrollment record for all seniors so you can submit them to the state with a gradualted enrollment record.  Or do you leave it and fix the seniors next year. I am trying to figure out how to handle this as the high school is trying to get class ranks done prior to all this and without an enrollment record for the seniors, I will have to go in and fix these next year.

How does everyone handle this?

I extract the report from PowerSchool, find my seniors, do a copy and paste to create another entry and then code that entry as a completer.  I know this isn't the easiest but it is the best solution that I have come up with. I don't think PS can handle this type of record because if you transfer them out as a completer it transfers them out of school and therefore won't roll them over in the EOY process to graduated students.

    I have tried three times to get my school enrollment report, and the enrollment code column has been empty.  Any ideas as to why?

I have the same thing...If we go ahead and put in the exit code for each student that they will be promoted or graduated, will that mess up EOY?
