I have been using Powerschool Health for a few years now and would like to know if there is a way to speed up entering screening results and documenting student health office visits.I send so much time documenting that is is amazing that I get to see the students.Please send me your suggestions for speeding up the process.

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.

I am wanting to pull 2009 and 2010 S2 GPA of students who are currently in the 9th grade. I am not having any luck as these students are not in the same school that they would have earned these in. They are in the high school now and I want their S2 gpa when they were 7th graders and their S2 gpa when they were 8th graders.

I went to our HS and selected the 9th graders and exported the following with no results
^(*gpa method="WMS Weighted S2" type="cumulative"term="S2"year="2010")

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure if this would work, but would you need to change your "Historical Grade Level" in School/School Info to get the previous GPA to appear?

I have a question on changing a teacher name for classes created and in session:  Due to sudden death of a teacher, we are in the process of transitioning things to a different teacher.  Is it possible to completely assign a different teacher to classes already assigned to a teacher who is no longer here and class already in session with grades Etc.??? I hope this makes sense. I just need to know the easiest way to change teachers, but not to affect current grading etc.

Yes it is possible.  The first thing you need to do is make sure your new teacher is entered into PowerSchool.  If it is an existing staff member then you do not have to do anything.  If a new staff member is hired then follow all steps setting up a new account like security, scheduling information, etc. 

Once entered, navigate to "School" --> "Sections".  Click on a course that you want to change.  Then click on the "Exp" for a section.  From the teacher dropdown box change the previous teacher to the new teacher.  Scroll down and hit submit.  Do this for each course and section(s).  This will not delete student grades like when moving students from one class or section to another.

Note:  The above will not change any information in stored grades.  If you want change that information, you would have to use DDA.

Thank you Bryan.  That was great information. I was thinking it would be fine, but needed to double check before I did anything.  Not something I wanted to do in the first place, but necessary due to circumstances.  Thanks again!

If you are seeing this, please call PS and submit a case. They have decided that this is a known issue and will get a fix for it at some point. I would like this point to be ASAP as this has caused many issues for many people in our district and I am sure if you are experiencing this, your district would like the fix ASAP as well. The more people calling, the better. Thanks in advance
