Who all will be using PowerTeacher Pro this fall? My intent was to start our new teachers with it ... but I'm getting cold feet. I've been so busy that I haven't had much time to figure it out. Just curious what others are doing. If I start the new teachers with PTP, they will come to me for grade book support. :-(  #neverbeenateacher

We are having the new teachers to our district use Pro and during our pre- in-service we are going to let the other teachers choose if they want to be cutting edge with Pro. Our technology  integration specialist and I are to the training at ESU 10. I know Wayne and Ellie will help everyone get through this upgrade.

Sure wish I lived closer to Wayne and Ellie!

We are planning on rolling it out to all teachers the 17-18 school year.

We are going to have demonstrations and classes on PTPro the first have of this 16-17 school year. In the second half of 16-17 school year we are going to have group of teachers convert their gradebooks and be trained on the program and use it for the rest of the school year. Then those teachers are going to turn around and teach the other teachers in the 17-18 school year.  So basically we will have a teach the teacher model in place.

Hello everyone -- Great conference this week! Thanks to everyone who presented and worked on the event. :-)

How do you handle long-term subs for maternity, etc.? Do you give the sub access to the teacher's PS account and grade book? (Obviously, changing passwords first.) Do you create a new account for the sub and use them as a co-teacher for the 12 weeks or so?

What are the long-term ramifications for creating a generic long-term sub account and using that account as a co-teacher? We don't usually have the same long-term sub so I'm considering changing the account name each time. Would that cause any problems later, with that account tied to grades?

Thanks!

Jane  :-)

Jane,
I Columbus I go to the Teachers account then change the Username and password to be the subs name for the username and a different password but it is the teachers account in PowerSchool. I have found that to be the easiest for us.  We may have multiple log term subs at the same time.  That way I know when the teacher comes back because she emails me that she can not log onto PowerTeacher until I change it back to her.

Jane,

We usually create a separate account for the long-term sub, add the sub as a co-teacher to the sections, and then de-activate the sub's account at the end of the assignment. This allows the sub to receive weather alerts, etc. through our third party program. And the teacher can still log in from home if he/she so chooses.

Thanks, Suzanne and Amanda. This gives me a couple of options. :-)
