Tried installing this plug in and get errors:

Plugin File contains a file that already exists: web_root/guardian/nextyearschedule.html
Plugin file contains a file that already exists: web_root/guardian/buletin2.html
Plugin File contains a file that already exists: web_root/guardian/honorroll.html

You need to delete all previously installed Enhanced Parent Portal plugin files before installing the PSCB - Custom Public Portal 2.3 plugin.

Hi Rob, thanks again for all of these PSCB Reports and Customizations. You have no idea how much we appreciate them.
I've installed and enabled this plugin and everything is working fine except I'm not getting anything to populate in the grades section. It does for the Report Card Plugin on the admin side. I would think they pull the same info but I'm lost. I deleted the older version and installed 2.4 but that didn't do it either.

Please confirm the following.

- The grades from the teacher gradebook have been stored.
- Navigate to Setup / School / Parent/Student Access/ CPP Page Settings / Enter CPP Report Card preferences.
- Confirm that your Report Card - Grading Terms are entered correctly and the display boxes are checked.

Rob, those steps have all been done and no grades appearing. I have the other sections, attendance, comments but nothing is showing for grades.

Rob, those steps have all been done and no grades appearing. I have the other sections, attendance, comments but nothing is showing for grades.

Jknopp, I was having the same issue and discovered that because one of the six terms had not been stored (in my case, it was S2), none of the grades appeared. Once I unchecked S2, the rest (Q1, Q2, S1, Q3, Q4) were displayed.

If you would like to arrange a conference call or zoom session to discuss this issue, you can contact at

I was able to install this plug in and customize it for one school - I am wondering if there is a way to add the report to the print mass screens or add it to the report menu.

Thank you,

Ellen Clifford

PSCB is exploring methods for mass printing the report cards for a selected group of students.

The PDF needs to be updated to match the web page description for compatibility with PS 20.4

The PSCB - Public Portal installation guide has been updated. Thanks for bringing this our attention.
