PowerSchool SIS PowerScheduler: Prepare to Build (Feb 15 - 17, 2021)

Event Description


The PowerScheduler Prepare to Build 3-day session is designed for schools that have not previously built a master schedule in PowerScheduler, are new to scheduling concepts, or need extra assistance in working through the preparation process. The Prepare to Build 3-day session will go over all items that need to be completed in order to have a productive build experience. You need to have some key items set up in your instance of PowerSchool SIS in order to work hands on. These include: courses, students, and teachers. This course is designed for people who will need more assistance with setting up the parameters for their school.
