Hello All,

 

My name is Eva and I work for PLASP Childcare Services in Ontario, Canada as a Relief Coordinator.  We are a large service provider with over 15000 children in our care.  We have been using eSS for approximately three years to replace an antiquated paper and pen process of job placement.  After a conversation with Marie, tech support in Ottawa, who was extremely helpful, the department realized we could work far more efficiently with better knowledge. 

 

I look forward to learning new things.

Hi All,

 

I'm Denise Wadsworth and I've been a Speech-Language Pathologist in San Marino USD for 21 years -- these last 18 at Huntington Middle School.  I LOVE SUPPORTING my students with IEPs as well as my General Ed students through volunteer work as a Safe School Ambassador Leader, WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) Advisor and Rotary Interact Advisor.  

 

I fully admit that I limit my tech to what will support my students or make me more capable of supporting them.  I'm willing and ready to learn (Growth Mindset) how PS will do this.

 

Be well,

 

Denise

Hi @pnblhoehne

 

We are delighted to have you onboard the PowerSchool Community! 

 

The Community is a great place to find product-related updates, knowledgebase articles, forums, etc. While most of its pages are accessible by all Community members, access to certain pages on the Community is restricted to the Designated Support Contacts within your school district. 

 

If you feel that you need to be a Designated Support Contact within your school district, I recommend reaching out to the current Designated Support Contact of your school district who should be able to work with PowerSchool and have your account access within the community updated. Or, you can also write an email to businessoperations@powerschool.com requesting to be made a Designated Support Contact within your school district. 

 

We encourage you to participate in the forums of your expertise within the Community and share your valuable thoughts and ideas with us.

Hello,

 

My name is Debbie Faber.  I am the Purchasing Manager for Charlotte County Public Schools using BusinessPlus.  I would like to find some folks that are using the Fixed Asset module of BusinessPlus to see what type of scanners they are using to scan and upload data.  Hoping I can find someone through here or I can get pointed in the right direction.

Hi @DebbieF!

 

In Community, BusinessPlus is one of the forums that are accessible by Designated Support Contacts in which you will find user's experiences regarding BusinessPlus issues. I recommend participating in the BusinessPlus forum for better assistance and to know more about what type of scanners the users are using to scan and upload data in the Fixed Asset module.

 

I have attached the direct link to discussion forum for BusinessPlus Forum

Greetings -

 

I am the current Director of Technology at Yongsan International School of Seoul (YISS). It is a private international school managed by a local foundation and the Network of International Christian Schools and Oasis International Schools, Inc. We are located in the Yongsan-gu area of Seoul. YISS is a school of about 1,000 students.

 

I am responsible for all things technology at YISS -- and mostly manage the services verses have a lot of hands on with the various services. When I worked with NorthStar Academy, we used PowerSchool for a couple of years and I did a lot with it and was hands on. That will also be my role at YISS as well. Our biggest need at this point is to integrate Standards Based Grading/Reporting. I am looking forward to getting back into PowerSchool and refamiliarizing myself with it and seeing what we can do with it.
