Escalate an Observation to Administration


Escalate an Observation to Administration



When you create an Observation in PowerTeacher Pro, there is the option to "escalate to administration".


How is admin notified when an observation has been escalated?  Do they receive an email?


Thank you,

Hi @tkennedy1981

Once the Observation has been Escalated, an email will be sent to the addresses in the “Disciplinarian” field at Schools/School Info. The incident will appear as a “Teacher Referral” in Incident Management.

Note: Escalate to review by administration is only available if your administrator has activated the escalation feature.


Here are the documents that you can refer to for information on Creating Student Observations and enabling Incident Creation on the PowerTeacher Pro portal.

After escalation can the teacher see what action wa taken by admin?

@nicolinskyNo, one it has been escalated it is no longer editable by the teacher, and an Admin user will have to go into Incident Management and finished correctly coding the Incident.
