I am having the worst time finding resources to learn about Powerschool, how to navigate the SpEd side, and details about the admin side of things.
I work for a small school district in Alaska, and our Admin Assistant to the SpEd Director has been out for some time. I am stepping in to help with the paperwork flow as well as some admin duties until someone else can be hired. I have the tech manual, and found a few other resources, but they aren't extensive. This new addition to my workload leaves me with more questions than answers. Our district has only been using PS for a couple years, and the gal that knew the most about the program is unavailable to help.
If someone has a PowerSchool/Special Programs guide for dummies that explains thing in excruciating detail as if you're 12 please drop a link! Thank you!
Thank you for your question in PowerSchool Community!
We have great documentation on user's help for Special Programs here: PowerSchool Special Programs Help
Some resources are publicly accessible on PowerSchool Community while others are available to specific roles in a district such as the role of a Designated Support Contact or users with a PowerSource account. If you would like to get admin level documentations, I recommend reaching out to a Designated Support Contact of your district to request the access to be added to your account and we can assist you in getting the resources. You can also send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and PowerSchool will work with the current Designated Support Contacts within your school district to request the access be added to your account.
