Tech. Notes:

 

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!

Powerschool was updated to version 11 over the summer.  You can remove your old gradebook from your teacher computer – it has been discontinued and should not be used. It has been replaced completely by PowerTeacher Pro, which is web-based – meaning no more java!  You will still enter attendance the same way.

Teachers should be logging into  Powerteacher Pro and getting familiar with it by now.  You will need to customize it for your classes and assignments.  It’s a great product, web-based and very smooth running.

Please take time to watch these videos for a great introduction to Powerteacher Pro.
