Hello everyone! Happy to be here
I am the current SIS Admin at a privet High School in Columbus, Ohio. I am a one man Army in my building, and the only one who uses the Admin side of PowerSchool at my school of 900 students.
The new website looks great and I see much potential in it for the community.
My name is Michele Turner and I am the Data Integration Manager for Noblesville Schools. I've worked for the district for 11 years and PowerSchool SIS is my primary responsibility. I also help ensure other systems that require student information are properly integrated with PowerSchool for rostering, etc. We have been a PowerSchool district since 2001 and have been using PowerSchool Registration (formerly known as InfoSnap) since 2014.
I enjoy working with customizations in PowerSchool and am always looking for ways to streamline our processes to make everyone's jobs a little easier each year.
I am excited to see the new site and the continued growth of the PowerSchool product!
Good afternoon @MicheleT1!

I am currently the PowerSchool administrator and state reporting person for the Rhea County Department of Education in East Tennessee. We have been using PowerSchool since 2009 having moved from SASIxp. My background is in technology rather than education. I started as a field engineer for a research company before moving to technology in education and then to SIS administration.
I have to say that PowerSchool is the best SIS package that we have used. I really like the way that PowerSchool can be customized and that we have access to the entire database. What we can now do with PowerSchool is limited only by our imagination and ability to write the necessary code.
At work I spend quite a bit of time looking at data, using Excel and answering questions from our schools. However, at times I do get to write a bit of SQL and some custom pages. Those coding puzzles are where I can lose track of time and not notice that it got dark outside.
Good afternoon @TimJ2!
That is wonderful to hear you have had such a great experience with PowerSchool! We encourage you to share your best practices and interact with others SIS users in the forum. Our team of moderators is also here to assist you in any way we can!

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.
