Will not let me change school on returning student

While trying to register a returning student it will not allow me to change the school they will be attending. This student will be attending a different highschool in the county school system, however it won't let me change it to that highschool. It is listed as a different highschool in the county.

Hi @hbrown,


Thank you for reaching out for assistance through the Community!  I understand you are not able to change the school your student will attend when completing the registration forms.  I recommend reaching out to the District Administration Office and request to speak to the PowerSchool Administrator since the field is pre-populated, which are typically read-only.  If you have any further questions, please let me know and I will be happy to help!

If you are in the gray time between the end of one year and rollover, I don't think you can do this.


However, after rollover,

1. From School A: withdraw the student from School A, then do Functions --> Transfer to another school and choose School B. 

2. From School B, look up the student with /Last_Name, click on the student from the list, then do Functions --> Reenroll in school.


Every year we have a handful of pre-enrolled kiddos that have to wait until after rollover.


Hope this helps,
