Brand new to powerschool - just went though the prepare to build training with powerschool. As a K-12, I have always created models (we used iNow) and manually scheduled students by hand. We will not be allowing PS to build our master schedule.
I am a little - well, alot - lost 😬 on what my next steps are. I feel like the powerscheduler training we went through was for schools that we going to let PS Build. I've been looking for resources here and can't seem to find anything.
I know we need to set up the year - but I don't think that we will have scenarios, constraints, etc.
Any help/point in the right direction would be awesome!
There are a lot of variables here that I don't know, but basically:
This is all just a guess based on my own past experience, but every school is different. But, ultimately the reason you work in PowerScheduler is so that you can use it as a sandbox until you are ready to go live and Commit the new schedule. The ability to create multiple scenarios lets you try different combos of courses/teachers/students.
Hope this helps.
