The registration secretary recently enrolled a new student who is transferring to our school in January. She shows up on the admin side as pre-registered with the entry date of 01/06/2014. Her enroll status is -1. But she's showing up in teachers' Gradebooks for the S1 term. (These are yearlong courses.) The teachers were all confused, thinking they have a new student in class, and she also shows up under attendance. I verified in a teacher's Gradebook that she is showing under active students.

She shouldn't be showing up in Gradebook and attendance if she's not an active student, right?? Are we enrolling the student incorrectly?? TIA.

I'm posting my answer, in case anyone else comes across this issue where a pre-registered student shows up in PT Gradebook before active date. There's a setting in PT Gradebook:

Go to Gradebook Preferences.
Click the Student tab.
Check the box "Hide pre-registered students."

Is there a way to print a drop/add list for the current year? I have an administrator requesting a list of all the students who've dropped or added classes for the current and upcoming semester since the beginning of the school year. Is there a canned report or a way to export from DDE? TIA.

Can anyone give me reasonings why you feel it's important for teachers to let you know when grades are updated after grades are stored.  What explanation do you give teachers of why this is important, or do you feel it's important?

I was able to install the custom reports bundle with the grade book vs. stored grades report and was shocked at the number of teachers that changed students grades and did not let me know (even after it was told to them that they needed too).

Any thoughts would be appreciated!  Thanks!

I meant Stored Grades vs. Grade book.  :)

We had the same thing happen last summer. We ran the custom report and found a lot of changed grades.   We decided this year we are going to watch closely.   After quarter ended this Oct we ran the report and had 3 teachers change grades and didn't following the proper procedure to get stored grades changed.   I think it is just a matter of you being "cop" so to say and watch the report after you store and talk to those teachers.   We have a Yellow Grade Change form they are suppose to fill out if they change the grade after we store.  This way we have a record of why it was changed.  Maybe show the teachers this report and have them figure out why it changed.  It might make them more responsible the next time you store grades.

We tell our teachers it is important because parents see what is in PowerSchool on the Parent log in side which is Live Grades and the grades for a class could be different from what was sent to them on the report card which are Stored Grades.  If they are different the Teacher must explain to the parents how this has happened.

I have a couple of rural school kids who are going to take Driver's Ed via DL. I used Enroll in Another School to get them in the class. What I'm worried about is Attendance, ADA/ADM, and anything else that would affect NSSRS. Does anyone have any experience with this and have any advice for me?

We have a student that only takes band with us. We do report the student in NSSRS.  He has a FTE of .2 so he doesn't really count because the FTE must be 50 percent or more but we do all the templates for them.
