Re: Setup a PowerSchool Sandbox

Hi I would also like this information; and when signed in I am getting an error message "Hmm, it looks like you don't have access to this resource"

 

We are looking at setting up a powerschool develoment environment or sandbox to test features and grading for next year.

Re: Setup a PowerSchool Sandbox

Are you the Technology Director for your system?  Please check to ensure you are listed in Ed Dir as the Technology Director.  It is my understanding that is the person with the rights to do that.  Also, are you a member of PowerSource?  That is necessary as well.

Re: Setup a PowerSchool Sandbox

Hi @AndyB9,

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.

If you are unable to access a resource it is likely that the resource is only accessible by Designated Support Contacts of a district.  In case you feel that you should have Designated Support Contact access, I recommend reaching out to a Designated Support Contact of your district to request the access to be added to your account or email at businessoperations@powerschool.com and PowerSchool will work with the current Designated Support Contacts within your school district to request Designated Support Contact access be added to your account.

 

For further information, please refer to our guide to Getting Started on PowerSchool Community for Designated Support Contacts (Technical Contacts).
