Scheduling Issue when trying to add new courses.

We are in the beginning stages of scheduling, but have hit a road bump when we try to add new courses to our 2021-2022 course list. We were told that we have to have district access, but we cannot figure out how to grant someone District access to view the course catalog options. Is there anyone that can assist us with this?

Basically your PowerSchool instance has a course catalog that is managed at the "District" - typically by your PowerSchool admin or team. In that district course catalog, the courses you want to add need to be made "available" to your school for that school year in order for you to add them to your scheduling course catalog.

 

I would contact your PowerSchool admin/team either about gaining access or about asking them to add the courses to your school's list.

@3899133854 To grant a user district access, go to Staff > find the user > Security Settings >  Admin Access and Roles tab.  There you should see a list of schools under the username/password fields.  District can be added using the Add button. 

 

Alternatively, there is a setting to allow courses to be managed at the School level (versus the District level).  This is found under District > Course Settings. 

 

Your district's SIS admin should be able to assist with these items.
