Does anyone know how to assign Dual Credit to a course in PowerSchool?  Such as a course taken for dual credit through Southeast or Northeast on line or off site.

Currently, there is no place to set this in PS. Pearson is supposed to release an update on Feb. 10. I have been told this and other needed changes will be in this update. 

I do not believe the Student Grades report is worth running, until the update is released. From my testing, it is still pulling the staff's SSN instead of the NE unique staff ID. I believe the latest update of the Student Grades report is version 1.5.

Thank you!  I will stop stressing over this (for a while!)

I didn't have the report pulling two columns for the report-one of which was the dual credit (#32) or the column for controlling district code (#33) in addition to it not pulling the NDE ID-this is the email I got today-at least Wayne has a target date :)


Case number 01004141 has been assigned to a PowerSchool support agent, and is currently pending futher investigation. While in this status, your case is assigned to a support agent, however, it may not be immediately addressed due to other assigned cases of a higher priority.

The support agent will contact you when they are ready to continue the investigation.

If you haven't updated to PS 7, you probably are aware Pearson isn't updating the State reports for PS 6 after Jan. 1, 2012. We have known this for some time. Unfortunately, changes to the state reports that NDE released on April 4, August 11, and November 23 were not implemented into the state reports prior to the Jan 1 deadline. Most of the recent changes released by NDE have to deal with the Student Grades Report. If these were minor changes, where we could run the report and do some simple massaging of the data, it wouldn't be a critical issue. Unfortunately, all the changes aren't minor. The key one is the report pulling the new staff unique state ID instead of the SSN. 

It was my understanding Pearson would have a PS 6 state reporting update for any changes NDE identified, as long as the changes were published well in advance of the Jan 1, 2012 deadline. I believe NDE's changes were sufficiently ahead of the deadline, especially the April and August releases. I have expressed my extreme displeasure over this situation to Pearson's NE state reporting rep, Wyatt Gaylor and to Pearson's NE state sales rep, Michael Hernandez. I will be having a conference call with them and the director of state reporting early next week. If your school is still on PS 6 and this is a major issue, please send me an email ( or post to this article. Also, I would recommend you contact Michael Hernandez at or 916-288-1743. He is expecting your communications.

I would hope that if there is enough concern of this matter, Pearson would publish a state reporting update for PS 6. Another solution to this is migrating to PS 7. From what I have seen, PS 7 has been very stable and many schools when they migrated also switched to have Pearson host their servers and this seems to be going very well so far. If you are a small school, the cost to have them host your server is minimal, especially compared to the cost of a new server. You can discuss this option with Michael.

We're still on PS 6 and need to be able to work with state reports. I'll send an email to Michael Henandez, as well.

Thanks for catching this, Wayne.

Question. Will this workshop go over the build and load process or will it be more focused toward building registration screens. Tried to email Wayne at , but it keeps coming back as undeliverable. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

That would be because I spelled his email incorrectly.  I fixed it above.

It will cover the complete process, which is a lot for one day! We will cover the Build, the Load and the setup of registration screens. Sounds like fun, right?   [thanks Graci :) ]

I can't seem to get PT Mobile to work on an iPad. Can someone send me some instructions that aren't as vague as the ones on PowerSource? I can find the district when I search, but it doesn't seem to hold the information to log in.

Are you running 7.0.3 or 7.1 (current).  If so it is broken on those two releases.

We are hosted now, so running the most current version. I guess I'm glad to know it's not just me :~P

Does anyone know if this got fixed?
