Gradebook Reports Customization

PowerSource Thread #5066 - Vital information is missing on the Individual Student Report in PowerTeacher Gradebook. Adding Counselor Name, Student Number, Grade Level, and Citizenship will be a great idea to identify the correct student (especially students with the same name).

Electronic Data Collection of Pupil Permanent Record (PR) Information

PowerSource #1681 - As specified by the California Code of Regulations (CCRs), there is information that is required to be kept (in perpetuity) as part of each student's permanent record that is not currently in PowerSchool: 1) a field for listing method used to verify pupil's birthdate; 2) address of parent of minor student; 3) address of minor student if different from parent; 4)field to note annual verification of address information.

Adding these fields to PowerSchool would not only allow California school districts to meet CCR requirements for permanent record keeping, but would also allow the elimination of maintaining a hard-copy PR card. It would be extremely helpful if a report could be included as part of this enhancement, allowing the CCR specified permanent record information to be pulled for individual students.

Health Screenings

PowerSource #3080 - For those of you that would like to have a search option for your nurses/health aides to filter information on student health screenings, please log into PowerScource (link above) and vote up this enhancement request

Name a report in the Report Queue Job Detail

PowerSource #1061 - Please vote up this enhancement request to be able to rename the reports in the Report Queue list. Requested by Rick Biggs, Lancaster

Make Entry/Exit Codes Mandatory

PowerSource #4627 - This enhancement is requesting that the exit code be made a mandatory field when transferring a student out of school since this record does not get reported to calpads to exit the student until an exit code is present. This causes other various calpads errors when upload other necessary files/criteria. The enhancement also states something about the entry code, but it's purely cosmetic for our district and we do not consider it to be a necessary field since it does not drive anything.
