Course Numbers (3)
I realized recently that I had an alternate course code incorrect for a teacher in last year's Grade Report. I want to find the course and fix it, but I can't find it. 

I went into DDA>Courses, but there's not field there for Alternate number. Can someone point me in the right direction?

In DDA, the Alternate Course Number only shows up if a course has been assigned one.  It then appears in the Custom field, but appears to be non-editable (if that's a word) in DDA.

Editing the Alternate Course number can be done at the Setup>School>Courses screen.

Can I create a section with students enrolled and not have it show up on the parent portal at all. Am trying to figure out a way if this is possible or not.

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!!!
