Hello Everyone,

Am excited to learn something new, well at least to me.  I have been teaching at the Community College level and now am moving to the NAF Spruce High School with some terrific young ladies. I have been teaching since 2004 first in Denver Colorado, and then moved to Arizona.  Due to the lack of greenery, I decided to come to Texas. Previous a C+ programmer before becoming a teacher but have managed to put the best of two worlds together and loving them both. 

Am new to PowerSchool and look forward to learning a lot. Anything you can do to help me will be accepted with open arms.

Hi.

This is Hyounoh Kim from South Korea. I've been here just two weeks ago.

I visited here as a visiting scholar in JMU. I'll stay here for one year.

I hope my family will spend a great time in this beautiful area and my children will be happier in ROPS

Hi, I'm David Kenny.  I'm Network Administrator for Belvidere Community Unit School District 100, in Belvidere, IL.  Belvidere is about 90 miles Northwest of Chicago, IL, about 20 miles south of the Northern border of Illinois and Wisconsin.  We have about 8,000 students and around 1,000 staff members.   

 

We use a selection of SIS products formerly managed by SunGard called eSchoolPlus 4.0 and BusinessPlus.  As of about a year ago, PowerSchool acquired these products.  I've worked here for about 12 years, now, but am only now tapped into the Technical Support contact list for eSchoolPlus/PowerSchool. 

 

I do some networking, but mostly software and hardware integrations for our school district.  One of the major ongoing tasks I've been working with for the last 10 years is SIF (Schools Interoperability Framework), which facilitates data sharing between the Student Information System (SIS) and other software products and services.  We currently integrate with a lot of different third party apps (since most of today's instructional technology is cloud-hosted) via SIF.  I'm here mostly to try to figure out how to best utilize the community to bring me up to speed on how to navigate PowerSource support and the SIF infrastructure at PowerSchool. 

 

I've been frustrated with no progress on two SIF-related tickets that I've submitted to PowerSchool support (PowerSource).  Although the tickets have been assigned, the assignees haven't even bothered to say hello in over a week.  Hence, I've come to the Community to see what useful intelligence I can gather on my own.  --David

Hi David,

 

Thank you for your post in our community and introducing yourself. I have read your concerns and I will personally make sure to reach out the agents that are involved with your support tickets. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please feel free to send me an e-mail.

 

Thank you,

Ashley

  Hello!  I'm Holly Debenham and I teach 7th-grade life science in a middle school in Fairbanks Alaska. I've been teaching science at the middle school for 17  years.   Our School District recently purchased Power School Pro and I am (along with most of our teachers) adjusting to learning how to use Power School Learning after using Canvas for some years.  Our district transferred content from our Canvas Classes, however, some content seems to work while other content doesn't.  

 

We have an IT person to help with our transition.  I am interested in organizing my content into more coherent units that align with the NGSS Science Curriculum.

Hi @hdebenham

 

Thank you for taking the time to introduce yourself.  I hope that you and your colleagues find this resource valuable as you complete this transition and get to know PowerSchool Pro.  New Knowledge Base articles are being added constantly, and the Forums are a great way to collaborate and learn from other Districts. 

 

Welcome!

Hello!

 

I am the Technology Support Specialist (PowerSchool Administrator) at South Callaway R-II School District in Mokane, Missouri.  We have been using PowerSchool since 2005.  I started at SC in 1999 as the high school secretary and moved over to Technology in 2013.

 

I am a huge fan of PowerSchool and am trying to implement new things and keep us as updated as possible.  We currently use e-Registration as well but will be switiching to PowerSchool Registration during this school year.

 

We also have a couple of third party vendors we use for payments and messages.

 

I rely on PowerSource quite a bit to get knowledge and am excited to start using the PowerSchool Community.

Hello!

 

My name is Jane Campbell. I'm PowerSchool administrator (and Apple technician) for a private, all-girls high school in Omaha, Neb. We have about 700 students in grades 9-12. I've been a PS admin since 2005 but I'm still learning every day.

 

We're currently on PS 11.0.5. Not quite ready to move to 12. We use Marcia Brenner plugins Report Card Creator and Café. Also have Phoenix Learning's School Forms for online registration. I love custom plugins and all the smart PowerSchool users around the world who generously share their knowledge through PSUG@grops.io. 🙂
