To upload an entire zip you’ll have to be on PowerSchool 7. Then the steps are as follows:

Scores Page Standards with Weighting

This customization is not compatible with PowerSchool 10.0/PowerTeacher Pro sections.

Removal - Delete the customized versions of:

PS 7 Edit Bulletin Enhancement

This customization modifies the Edit Bulletin page in PS 7 to alert you of the audience that the bulletin will be published too. The customization will also default the default audience to Teachers instead of Public.

Student Stats V 3.1

A set of pages that allow Admin and Teachers to see graphically how the student is doing compared to the rest of the class or to course.

The 1st graph shows (Only applies/shows in schools using daily attendance) is a pie chart of the selected students daily attendance, the chart will show Present, Absent and Tardy totals, based on your attendance code setup.

The 2nd graph shows the current (not stored) students grades using current term display and the corresponding classes’ averages. The graph will only show classes that are set to be stored.

Auto Assign Teacher ID

When creating new staff in PowerSchool you are required to assign an ID number. The included replacement page will auto assign a number based ID. The page uses SQL to determine what the next valid id number should be.
Version History:

• Initial release

V 1.0.1 (04/30/2009)
• Fixed issue where on Submitting a new teacher, a “No ID number assigned” error would occur

V 2.0 (8/16/2011)
- Updated for PS 7
- CPM Import friendly

Teacher Recommendation Enhancement

Currently when a Teacher goes to enter a Student Recommendation the auto complete lists all courses in the district. The course can even be active or inactive.

This customization modifies the auto complete to only show the currently active course list for that students next_school.

Mobile Pages Enhancements

Resources for Mobile Pages presented at PSUG Las Vegas. Note for first Monday evening session attendees... the issues we had with Stored Searches and Selections were a file that was misnamed. The Flash Drive has a file in admin/mobile named cuselection.html and it should be named curselection.html. This zip file has the filename corrected.

(2/15/2012)
Updated the \admin\schoolsetup\mobilesettings.html to reflect recent changes in PowerSchool.
Made CPM import friendly.

Congratulations to CO-PSUG

Congratulations to the Colorado League of Charter Schools on a very successful 2nd annual PSUG-CO Conference! I look forward to next year's event.

Grade Verification 5 RC 1

Notice - Users of the PDS Grade Verification may want to look at switching to the stock Grade Verification (aka In Progress/Completed Button) that’s in the Gradebook and is reported using the Section Readiness Report (PT Admin) or Gradebook Verification Report (PDS Report Bundle) because the Parent/Student Apps show the In Progress/Completed indicator that is set in PTG in the newest version of the mobile apps.

Grade Verification for PS 7.0.3+
