New to Powerschool


New to Powerschool

Hello All,

The person who was in charge of all the powerschool duties at work is gone and neither  my co worker or I know much about Powerschool other than the simple duties. I have no clue where to start for the new school year and we better get on it. Can someone please guide me down the right path for training videos etc..??

Depending on what version of Powerschool you are using,  Powerschool has great built in support if you click on the "?" in the upper right corner of your screen and select System Help.   There is a  What's New section,  links to recent topics and Hot Topics.   In addition you can sign into the Powerschool Community and go to the Powerschool Insider Index.  You will find a great deal of knowledge in these videos.  You should also look for regional Powerschool User Group Meetings for your region as they host professional development opportunities for you to expand your knowledge of Powerschool Products. 


Good Luck with your new dive in Powerschool and what it has to offer!
