We have started using PS Registration this year. It was a smooth and very quick setup! We look forward to learning more about it and how it can benefit our school system!

We are new to PowerSchool Registration this year and we are really looking forward using it to fully integrate with PowerSchool when a student registers.
Thank you for your reply. If you have any questions about Registration, please post them in the Community.
Have a great day!

We have started using PowerSchool Special Education this year and we are finding this product to be very user-friendly. Our staff really like how easy it is to create and documents. It seems that the design team really did their homework when they designed the features. An example, When you print a document there is an option to add lines for handwritten notes during the meeting. This is very helpful and the staff loves it!
Print>Selected Sections>Select "Print large spaces for handwriting" in the upper right corner of the drop-down box.
Thanks for your post and sharing your wonderful experience using PowerSchool Special Education. I love the example you provided.

PowerSource has been an invaluable resource for not only me, but consequently our staff. When I started my job as PowerSchool administrator three years ago, I did not know much at all about PowerSchool. The PowerSource Knowledge base answered many of my questions. To this day, when a staff member asks for assistance, if I don't know how to do something, I log into PowerSource and search for my answer in either the knowledge base or a forum. The community is extremely knowledgable and helpful.
Of course, when all else fails, Tech Support is my other invaluable resource. I truly appreciate their knowledge and assistance. They always come through with answers to questions and issues.
Between these two resources, my staff is extremely grateful for the support we receive from PowerSchool.
We use several PowerSchool Products, but there is one feature of PowerSchool SIS that I love to use. The Data Export Manager makes it easy to put together exports of data that come from many different sources--different tables or views. DDE/DDA worked great in the beginning, but there were times that I had to go to SQL Developer and muck around with the Oracle database to put together an export that contained various bits of student information. Being able to stay within the SIS interface and get the job done is wonderful!!
We used Online Grade Verification and Section Readiness for the first time last week in PowerTeacher Pro. It was so quick and easy. It saves so much time and paper.
