Upcoming Scheduling Workshops at ESU 10
Cost: $35 (lunch included)

PowerScheduler is a very powerful tool that can save a lot of time for whoever setups the schedule and enrolls students. Everyone should be using PowerScheduler to have students enter their course requests for next year. PowerScheduler can use these requests to enroll students into their courses. The workshops are broken down into three areas:

PowerScheduler: Build & Load overview - Thursday, February 8th   
This workshop will cover the initial setup that is needed to get the scheduling process started, including the setup of the student request screens.


PowerScheduler: Prepare to Build - Thursday, March 15th

This workshop will cover the complex world of a Build. A Build is where you give PS all the necessary information and it creates a schedule. If you don’t like your current schedule or your schedule is going to change for next year, letting PowerScheduler Build the schedule is an option to creating the schedule manually.


PowerScheduler: Prepare to Load - Thursday, April 12th

This workshop will show how to Load the student requests into the schedule. No matter if you are going to use this current year’s schedule (even with a few tweaks) or if you had PowerScheduler Build it, the Load process will automate enrolling students into their requested courses.

To register for these courses, click HERE and search for PowerSchool.

Also, PowerSchool will be offering scheduling workshops in Lincoln, hosted by the Diocese of Lincoln Schools. More information will be posted soon.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

I've been looking through the info available now on the upcoming PowerTeacher Pro. Looks like the new gradebook will be VERY different. Has anyone seen a demo yet? Are you planning to roll it out next fall for all teachers to use? Are you planning training yet for your teachers? I can't wait to get rid of the Java-based app, but I'm leery of springing an all-new grade book on the teachers next fall. Just wondering what you are all planning to do.

Will we have a choice? I have not read alot and not really got into it BUT sounds like we will not have a choice if we update our systems. 
 Get out the aspirin.. 

From what I'm seeing, you will not be required to go to PowerTeacher Pro with an update. Some teachers can use the old Gradebook app while some use the new option. So you don't need that aspirin ... yet. ;-D

What kind of PS training do you offer for new teachers? This is my first year at a high school and I need to get the new teachers started with PowerTeacher and Gradebook. In the past, at an elementary school, I used other teachers to help the new teachers get started setting up their courses, explain weighting, etc. Does anyone have any good training materials you could share? Thanks!

We would be interested in PS training resources for new Teachers and new School Nurses.  Something tangible that they can put their hands on and refer back to.

I have a document that I created a few years ago that may be helpful.  I don't believe there have been too many changes since then.  If there is a way to send that to you on here I don't know how.  I will try to e-mail it to each of you.  I will send a pdf and a doc version so you can adjust anything you feel the need to.

OK so I thought I could get your e-mails but it seems I cannot.  Please e-mail me and I will respond.  kschutt@esu2.org
