Changing school year on PS Learning at the end of school year

Hi all -

 

So we are ready to change the school year on PS SIS from 17-18 to 18-19. Do I just need to select the 2018 option from the drop-down in PowerSchool Config and the new courses are automatically imported into that year category on PS Learning? What else needs to be done? This is our first time doing it so some assistance would be appreciated.

 

Please clarify.

 

Thanks.

Hi @skrishna!

 

Thank you for your post!

 

It is important to remember to work with your team to make sure the End of Year process is complete in the PowerSchool SIS. This will ensure that the data that will be imported is ready.

 

Once the end of year process is complete for the SIS and you data is ready, you can update the PowerSchool Configuration to point to the new school year to have Learning start grabbing the data for the new school year. It is important to remember that any 2017 classes will be removed if they only contain old rosters with no content in them.

 

Below is an article to go over the process of saving and sharing classes from one term/year to the next to help teachers move over to the new school year as well.
