Thank you so much!!!

After doing these steps I don't have a choice of 21-22 SY on my Ed-Fi 3.5.      Should I call Power School or put a ticket in?

If any of you are using the MBA Covid Plugin for contact tracing and have courses set up to track students for coaches/sponsors, how do you avoid picking those students up for contact tracing?

You can only find incidents using the Data Export Manager. It is not a table you can locate through DDE. 

Thank you!   So... is there a way to delete  incidents?

I'm assuming you want to delete them in mass. Otherwise, you can delete them individually.

Can anyone tell me if we are to begin publishing yet or not, and do we still use 3.1 or has there been an update that I am not aware of?

Thanks!

The new State update should be coming out really soon, possibly today. After you get your server updated, you can publish and start having fun!

Can anyone tell me if we actually need to complete the new Crisis Event Page for each student?  If we do can you please tell me if that can be done with fill Field Value or an Import.  I found the export fields but cannot get the information to import back in.  It appears to me that when you create a Crisis Event it assigns a Crisis Event Student DCID (that is completely different from the DCID or ID) and Event ID and I cannot find the table to import the information back in.  Thank you for ANY help with this!

Hello Kris,

Sheri Schultis was nice enough to walk me through it. The easiest way to make sure you are working with all of the correct fields and tables is to manually enter the data on 1 student.

Then go to: Start Page > Special Functions > Importing & Exporting

Select Data Export Manager

For Category Choose: Database Extensions

In the Export from find: S_STU_CRISISEVENT_C

Select all of the fields from that extension and export.

You will now have the template you need for your import.

The only fields you need to fill data in are:

STUDENTS.DCID
S_STU_CRISISEVENT_C.endDate
S_STU_CRISISEVENT_C.eventDescriptor S_STU_CRISISEVENT_C.startDate

Leave the rest blank.

Once you have all your data filled in go to: Start Page > Special Functions > Importing & Exporting

Choose Data Import Manager

Select your file
Import into: S_STU_CRISISEVENT_C

You only need to map from your file the fields I listed above.

Import

Your all set then.

Let me know if you have any other questions.





Thank you so much for this info but I still seem to be confused. 

Is there a difference between STUDENTS.DCID and S_STU_CRISISEVENT_C.StudentsDCID?  How do I find either?

There is no difference, The Student.DCID is used for the S_STU_CRISISEVENT_C.StudentDCID.

If you export out all of your students via quickexport, and check the box to include DCID, that ID is what you will use to import into that table.

Can anyone tell me if ADVISER will automatically pull the Perkins info now or do we still need to populate the Special Programs page for Career Education reporting?

Thanks for any advise!

With Adviser NDE will be able derive participants based off of student grades sent, so you will only need to report concentrators in special programs 

This is what I heard from our ESU:

Course sections should be marked for CTE this year and historically.
I believe they will be pulling Program Facts/Career Technical Education report from your PowerSchool.
Under each section there is a pull-down next to Program that has Career Education:


Marking this year's sections will give them participants, but I believe you will need to mark courses historically  to get concentrators.

Maybe I missed something. I wasn't aware that selecting Career Education in sections is necessary.

Kris,
You can the easiest I have found is to go to the scoresheet screen click on the assignment name then when the single assignment comes up go to the gear over on the right and chose show Metrics.

Suzanne

THANK YOU SUZANNE.  I knew I'd seen it but COULD NOT find it again!!!   Merry Christmas!

Did I see some "chatter" on here last week about AutoSend not working for TestWiz?  If so could someone please try to help.  I received an email from TestWiz with a new password but it still fails to send.  Is there something else that changed with a recent update that I need to fix?

Thanks for any guidance!

Kris, you may want to contact TestWiz support as they can now pull roster data directly from the Nebraska Ed-Fi ODS using secure APIs.  You can then dump the insecure FTP AutoSend(s).

Thank you Bryan, I will do that!

To get TestWiz to pull your data from Ed-Fi, send an email to TestWiz@CerticaSolutions.com requesting Ed-Fi Rostering. Here is an email we received from Certica Solutions who manages TestWiz. 

********************
Hi All,
Yes, we can retrieve Student Roster and Class assignment data out of the Nebraska Ed-Fi ODS. This automated process is a direct pull of the data, so there is no need to maintain extracts or send files from the Student Information System. We have been switching districts over to Ed-Fi Rostering on a case-by-case basis, as we wanted folks to be aware of the change. 

Please let us know if there are districts that are interested in switching to Ed-Fi, and we will contact them to get started. Alternatively, anyone who is interested, may send an email to us at TestWiz@CerticaSolutions.com, requesting Ed-Fi Rostering.

Yours truly,
Patty

I am losing my mind over this stupid report!  I have never had a problem with it before but this year I cannot get it to pull grades for my 9-12 students.  I have check my stored grades and they all appear correct.  I have checked my Reporting Store Codes at the district level.  The curious thing is that I have students that transferred in mid year.  The grades that were hand entered from their previous school appear on the report but not 1 grade for a student that has been here the entire year appears on the report.

Any suggestion will be very greatly appreciated!

I just had the same problem with new students that transfer in with their grades appearing.  I just had to delete them. 

Can someone tell me the 4th, 5th and 6th grade PE Course code we are suppose to use.

Make sure your store codes are entered individually at the district.

Thank you for responding!

I am confused by your comment about deleting those grades.  Why did you do that?

I believe the correct code for elementary PE is 080125

I do have my store codes set up individually.

????

I deleted those grades because they were historical grades that belong to that student before they came into our school.  We could not report them.

Are you course codes year long or by quarter?  If year long they belong all in one file like this - Q1,Q2,S1,Q3,Q4,S2

Not sure after this why they would not pull.

Is there a way to search for tardies by 1st period only?

5 Responses to "Tardy Search" (view all)

I pull tardy information via quick export for our report cards and an end of the year data file I provide teachers for updating cumulative folders using this coding:  ^(per.att;HR(A);TR)

To use for your school, you would need to change the HR(A) listing to however your first period shows in your listing of class periods.  For us, all grade levels start the day with Homeroom, so that's when we count tardies.

To do the Quick Export, just select all or whatever gorup of students you want, add lastfirst and the coding above to the search window, and it should work for you.

Of course, this requires you to piddle with a quick export as opposed to something more elegant.  I generally don't do elegant.

Thank you Ray.  Unfortunately that is what I do now.  I was just hoping there was a better way to search that I have missed all these years.  Seems like it should be such a simple thing to do.

You can use the System Reports >Attendance Count report.

You can choose a code and what period you want to search by and how many occurrences there are.

Does anyone have a field in PowerSchool to record the Free or Reduced Direct Certification reason?  Such as SNAP, Migrant, Foster etc.

OR if you do record that information, where do you do that?

Thanks for any guidance!!!

I record it in the application # slot. You can run a report through PowerSchool that then shows you their qualification and how they qualified. 

Perfect!  Thank you!!!

This year when a teacher sends out an email to parents through the Gradebook all replies are directed back to me instead of the teacher.  I don't recall this happening last year.  Has something changed?  Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing?  Thanks for any help!

We will be starting Pre-School for the 2018-2019 school year.  There will be 2 levels, 3 and 4 years old.  They will each attend 1/2 day every day.

Should I:
1.  Set up a "New" school for just the 3 and 4 years olds. OR
2.  Just add those levels to my existing Elementary school and just adjust their FTE and Attendance?

If the answer is New school what do I use for the school number?  I.E. HS=780072001
Elem=780072002

Thank you for any guidance!

I would do a separate school so that they can have a bell schedule that more closely matches their schedule. Otherwise it's a mess.

Thank you Peggy.  What about the number?

You can use ...003.  Your superintendent will need to contact NDE and let them know that you will be setting up a new school so that once you have the school set up in PowerSchool, data submissions for your PK students will match the proper school at NDE for EdFi and NSSRS purposes.

It has been brought to my attention that parents and students are not able to see grades for individual assignments for the teachers that are on PowerTeacher Pro.  Is this a setting somewhere that I have missed?  Or does the teacher have to do something?  Thanks!

We had this issue as well, and we solved by disabling customizations.  I have no idea why that works or what the connection is, but here is how you get to it:

Click System on the home page. Under 'Server' to System Settings. Then click Customizations.  If the box on that page is checked, uncheck it. 

We have found that our information on Dashboard doesn't sync when you disable it, so at times we will enable the customizations, sync, then disable it again so the assignments can be seen. Our Tech person has put a ticket in to PowerSchool about this issue. 

One of my teachers had an issue with students not seeing grades for particular assignments. We went to Edit Assignment and discovered "Count in Final Grade" was unchecked for a quiz and an assignment.

I've also noticed sometimes the students don't see grades in the PowerSchool mobile app. I'm guessing it might be a caching issue.

PS 11.0.2.0 looks like it has a lot of bug fixes. Looking forward to that update tomorrow night.

Thank you both!  I really don't want to turn off my customizations so guess we will just have to wait for a fix.  Hopefully this weekend!

Unfortunatelly Jane I checked and all of the assignments are checked for "Count in Final Grade" 

Darn!

If I want to delete a custom page, do I just find the page and delete it?  Will the original page stay or will I be deleting both pages?  OR do I cancel the custom page to get it to revert to the original page?

Thanks!

Yes, you can delete the custom page and it will revert to the original page.

With the latest update to PowerSchool I am not able to see the Data Exchange information in the left side bar on the start page with customizations turned on.  Does anyone know what I need to do to correct this?  Thank you!

This might be a stupid question ... but what's the Data Exchange info on the start page??

It is where you go to check on the Ed-Fi/Advisor stuff.

Is you EdFi plugin enabled?  After your post, I checked and noticed that mine was disabled.  Apparently, PowerSchool disables the EdFi plugin when it is is updated and forces one to re-enable it.  I did notice, though, that the EdFi Transaction Listener plugin is not on my list of plugins. Do you see yours on the list? This was on the list last school year.
I noticed the plugin PowerSchool Data Exchange (DEX)and enabled it. (Did this replace the Transaction Listener? )
From the District page, select System, then at the bottom of the next page under Data Exchange, click on General Setup where you should see your information from last year.
