My name is Amanda and I work in PowerSchool SIS Tier 1 Support in the head office in Folsom, CA.
I work with PowerSchool SIS clients alll across the US and Canada (and sometimes beyond) via phone, chat, and email to answer questions and resolve issues pertaining to the flagship product.
I've met a lot of cool people in my time here, and the clients are some of the best!
Fun fact, a lot of support agents have favorite areas for troubleshooting; as for myself, I enjoy working with Object Reports, Live-Side Scheduling, and Importing/Exporting.
My name is Michel Lami. I work at the American Shool of Paris in France for 37 years as the IT Manager. I'm also in charge of PowerSchool solutions we use at school. This includes PowerSchool SIS and Special Education (new this sumer). We started using PowerSchool SIS about 10 years ago.
Welcome to the PowerSchool Community!
Sounds like you have a great deal of experience in IT, how nice to spend it in France!!
Feel free to explore the community, if you have any questions please ask away.

I'm Deb Nash, from the lovely state of Virginia. I’m an IT Engineer for Manassas City Public Schools (~7,000 students) and have been with them since Sept 2015, when I jumped right into PowerSchool. I was an IT geek for 20 years and then worked in Public Safety for 10 years as a crime analyst before coming back into full IT.
Throughout that time I've had the opportunity to do everything from customer support at all tiers, Novell (!) server adminstration and running email platform migrations to analyzing crime data to catch the bad guys.
I want to give a big thanks to the awesome Customer Support staff (most often Mike Jackson, Jeremiah Johnson and Cam Ellis) who provide outstanding customer service, day in/day out. Also to the national PSUG mailing list, who are a fantastic group: always willing to share and support each other. I appreciate all that you guys do to make our lives easier. I'm looking forward to what this new site will offer and watching it grow.
Hello everyone! I'm one of two of our county's PowerSchool Administrators. We've been with PowerSchool for over 10 years now and it has been crazy watching PowerSchool grow into what it is now! I really enjoy customizing pages and playing with SQL. I also teach dual credit (high school and college credit) computer science courses for our high school along with my other duties, it is a challenge but keeps me connected and gives me insight into how PowerSchool is used in the classroom.

My name is Tina Bingman and I am from the beautiful state of Colorado on the Western side of the state in the mountains. I am going into my 15th year as the PowerSchool Adminstrator. I also do all of the state reporting and am the system administrator for a number of other student systems. We are a medium size district that span 3 rural communities and have around 5,000 students across 10 schools.
We have been with PowerSchool since 2001. What changes we have seen! These are exciting times for PowerSchool and we are glad to be part of this great community. There is no better support group than other PowerSchool users!

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to share a bit about yourself with the Community! I hope that you find this space a great resource for information about all things PowerSchool.
Have a fantastic weekend (hopefully in a park somewhere),
Hi! I am Carol Ramon, Attendance Secretary at Marshall Middle School, Marshall, Michigan. I am always looking for quicker and easier ways to keep track of daily/weekly/annual attendance reports!
Howdy! This is Wendy Myers from Marshall Middle School in beautiful downtown Marshall Michigan!
I'm one of the school secretaries, along with my partner in crime, Carol Ramon. We have used PowerSource, more so when we first transitioned from Zangle to PowerSchool about seven years ago. Our current tech director is a PowerSchool whiz so we are super lucky to have him. But we love to try to solve issues on our own and look forward to exploring the PowerSchool Community!
Hello, my is Barbara Carpenter. This is my first time signing up for PowerSchool. This site alway's intimidated me. Well I have signed up and I am ready to explore and be informed. I am not sure what I am doing with it but I'm willing to try this year.
I still remember the first time I started looking on PowerSource. I was wondering what I had gotten myself into.
Just keep in mind that PowerSchool has a great community of users, and we were all just starting out once.
Good Afternoon @cbarbara58!
