I am looking for an Excel spreadsheet of all the Nebraska Standards for Math & Language Arts (K-6). Please let me know if you have this information and are willing to share.

Just received a call from a parent reporting that her parent emails are showing her student with all As in every class (not true) and emails that show no scores (all zeroes). I tested two other students and get the same info (either As or all zeroes). Anyone else seeing this? We are hosted. Could this be related to their Rackspace issues the past couple of days?? I just submitted a ticket but I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this.

I just finished storing grades, and running honor roll and class ranking for our seniors yesterday morning. Now I have a request ("just to see what happens") to run a second honor roll and class ranking for seniors that excludes PE and Fine Arts courses. I know this is possible, but where would I put it? I have the usual Honor Roll calculation that goes into Store Code S2 and a second one for seniors called "High Honors" that goes into Store Code Y1. If I ran a 3rd calculation, I don't know where to store it. Does anyone do multiple honor rolls that exclude specific courses? If so, where do you store it? Thanks!

Where do you put it? You could use any code you want for the store code.... Z1, P2, 2H (for 2nd HR), etc. It is just a code you specify, which is used later to determine what records you pull when you run the HR report. The code has nothing to do with any term codes used in Final Grade Setup. This only addresses storing the HR records.

To me, the big question would be how do you ignore the PE & Fine Arts grades in the GPA calculation. I don't see that as your question, so if you have that figured out, there is no need for me to ramble on.  :)

Thanks, Wayne. I didn't realize I could create any kind of storage code.  That makes sense. So if I run Honor Roll and Class Ranking from this GPA calculation, I'll still be able to store each one into a specific storage code. 

Your big question has me worried. ;-) Looking at the options under GPA Calculations Method, you can list grade levels, school years and credit types. I'm assuming I can just list the credit types I want to include. Guess I'll find out ...  ;-)

We are new to PowerSchool this year and during implementation we set up our Entry and Exit codes as what was listed in the Nebraska State Reporting Setup Guide.

Entry Codes
100 Still Enrolled Still enrolled in the District.
101 Original Entry A student enters a school for the first time.
102 Transfer In Transfer in from a school, institution or home school setting.
103 Re-entry Re-entry after a withdrawal, whether voluntary or involuntary
Exit Codes
200 Transfer out – Intra-District Transfer out - within the same district.
201 Transfer Out Transfer out of the district.
202 Drop Out: A student who withdrew for personal or academic reasons.
203 Completer: Diploma A student who completed an approved program of study and met district/system requirements for a high school diploma.
204 Completer: No Diploma
205 Not Enrolled, Eligible to Return
206 Deceased, A student who died.
208 Maximum Age A student who passed the age for which the state guarantees a free, appropriate public education and subsequently exited school.

Now were are getting ready for EOY and I don't know what Entry and Exit codes to list for EOY. My best guess is this picture below.


Can someone help me know what Exit and Entry codes I need to set for EOY and be accurate for State Reporting?  Or do you have your own custom Entry and Exit codes for your school?

From your screen shot, your codes are exactly right. Your graduating seniors will exit with a 203 (completer) code then move to the graduated students school. The rest of your students will exit with a 200 (intra district exit) be promoted then re-enrolled with a 100 (intra district entry) for the new year.

Any students that are not graduating but leaving for other reasons will need to be exited with the appropriate code individually.

Be sure to have your students set to promote correctly on the Schedule Setup student page.

Hope this helps.

Thank You Kristi!
This helps a ton!

I leave all the Exit Codes blank except for Graduating. Here is the description of code 200 according to the NSSRS Student Guide. Unless you have more than one high school, middle school, or elementary school in your district, you will never use code 200.

• A student who transfers between schools within the same district/system.
• Do not use for end-of-year grade advancement.
• An entry enrollment code of 100 Still Enrolled should accompany or follow any exit enrollment code of
200 Transfer out – intra-district within the same school year.
Only use the 200 code if the district has more than one school offering the same grade.
