Below you will find information taken from the Nebraska Reporting Release Notes Feb. 12, 2010

Edit Section and Edit Course Page Updates 

Reference: PSSR-3830 

Description: New fields are required on the Edit Section and Edit Course District Information pages for the NE Curriculum report. 

Resolution: The following fields were added to or updated on the Edit Course District Information page (table and field name noted): 

Special Course Indicator – [Courses]NE_Spec_Course_Code. Use this field to indicate if the course is a special course. 

Alternate Course Number – [Courses]alt_course_number. This existing field is now used to record the Course Code. For more information about Course codes, see Appendix D, Course Codes and Clearing Endorsements:

A checkbox, “Exclude from State Reporting (Curriculum Report)” is now available. Selecting this option will exclude a course only for the Curriculum report. 

The following fields were added to or updated on the Edit Section page (table and field name noted): 

• Semester Code – [Sections]NE_SemesterCode. Select the code to indicate when the course is offered and the length of the course. 

• Minutes Per Session – [Sections]NE_MinPerSession. Provide the average number of minutes the class meets during the entire school year. 

• Assignment Grade Level – [StaffAssignment]NE_StaffAssignGrade. Use this field to record the Grade_Taught_Code. This field is also located on the Staff Assignments page. The following values were added to the pop-up menu on both pages: 

o (42) Grades K-2 

o (43) Grades K-3 

o (44) Grades K-6 

o (45) Grades K-8 

THANK YOU!  Don't know how I missed that one!

I am not sure if I have done something wrong or not, but I was wondering if anyone is seeing the following. When I go in and mark a students race and submit, the check boxes go away and are blank. I go look at the student race table and they are there. Then I go back into the same student and check the boxes again and same thing happen except when I go back tot he Student race table, there are duplicate records for the same student.

Has anyone seen this at all? I wonder what I am doing wrong.

The check boxes stay checked for us.  Sorry???

I have seen this at several schools and it is a known issue. There is a PS KB article, 58608 that describes a workaround. Since most of the schools are just getting started with this and they didn't have much entered, we just deleted all the records in the Teacher/Student race tables instead of doing the workaround. The one thing I forgot to do once, was to quit PowerSchool and restart. I kept deleting the records in the Race table, but it still didn't work, then I finally realized I didn't restart PS.

To delete the records:
Navigate to DDA
Select the StudentRace or TeacherRace table
Select all records
Click on the Modify Records
Verify you have the correct table!!!!!
Check the delete box and then click the delete button
Quit PS and  then restart PS.

Deleting the records and restarting the server did appear to work. Now the check boxes stay and things are updated in the StudentRace table. Thanks Wayne.
