Hello everyone,

 

I just realized that whle I've replied to someone's introduction, I never officially introduced myself. My name is Rod Russeau. I am the Director of Technology & Information Services for Community High School District 99 in Downers Grove, IL. We are a district with two high schools, about 5,000 students, an hour west of Chicago.

 

Weve been eSchoolPLUS and eFinancePLUS users since 2007. We were beta users of IEPPlus 5,0, and are now users of PowerSchool Special Education. 

 

I've been serving in this role at District 99 for 22 years. Technology has certainly changed in that time! Before that, I spent 20 years working for a company that developed student and financial information systems for schools. Over that time I did everything from software design, programming, installations, training, support and management. I had the good fortune to visit and work with hundreds of school districts all across the country.

 

I am looking forward to this unitied platform allowing communications and sharing of resources.

 

Happy Easter everyone!

Rod Russeau

Hi. 

 

I work for the Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit in Edinboro, PA.  As an IU, and not a school district, we have challenges when using eSchool Plus, because we aren't typical.  Can you tell me how I can subsribe to feeds that only apply to eSchool Plus? 

 

Thanks!

Good morning, @SMBISHOP

Welcome to the community. Can you tell me what button is giving you the access denied error? I am guessing that you are going to have to contact your PowerSchool Technical Support Engineer to get this resolved.

Hey Doug, 

 

Thanks for your reply 🙂

 

Chalia got back with me on Monday and I provided her with answers as to where I was getting this error.  Hopefully, I will hear something back soon.

Hello Everyone! 

 

My name is Solange and I am the new(ish) Customer Support Specialist for eFinance for Willamette ESD in Salem, Oregon. We currently serve 27 districts in the state of Oregon. Although, I've been using the purchasing module for over 10 years, the support specialist part for all of eFinance is faily brand new to me as I started this job in January. I'm trying to learn as much as possible to be able to provide the best support possible to our districts. 

 

I look forward to utilizing the resources available in this community!

Hello!

 

 

Kelly Cushion here. Loud and Proud SIU Saluki! 

 

I've worked with PowerSchool in Illinois, Indiana and currently Wisconsin. If I have to relocate again in 7-10 yrs, I figure it's a must that I should be in Ohio or Michigan to make for a well-rounded midwesterner 🙂

 

I love this group because one might think I wouldn't have so many questions I couldn't figure out on my own, that isn't the case as I continually come across more. Current role in South Milwaukee entails state reporting, summer school set up, report cards and End of Year Roll Over. Most of my questions I forsee involving hiccups with DPI errors, CTEERS report and EoY.

 

Have a great one!
