sqlReports is a free customization with a premium option that allows you to create sql-based reports and/or charts in the admin portal. As a reporting tool you can create reports that do not exist in PS and make them interactive by asking admins for input. As an export tool you can build simple or complex reports and users can save the information in comma or tab format. No need to use DDE, quick export, or report templates - admins can run reports you create and export the results on the screen or filter the results before exporting. You can also build student based reports that have a 'Make Current Selection' button to easily use the results of the report as the current selection.

sqlExports and sql Exports Lite

sqlExports is a powerful way to get your data out of PowerSchool. With it you can export almost any data you need out of PS and export from tables you see in DDE and tables you don't see in DDE, such as health, incidents, extended tables, and more. You can query the database first before doing an export and either do a one-time export or schedule it to run hourly, daily, or weekly. There are also a wide range of output methods - the export can be just to the report queue, it can be saved to a local or network drive on your PS server, it can be FTP'd to a server, or included in an email.

sqlExports Lite is a free and more limited version of the full sqlExports.

These can be "imported" by unzipping the download, opening the text file and pasting the contents into the "import" feature in sqlReports. These reports may need modification to work on your server and are shared "as is".

  • AP Class Sizes - Written to report on class sizes for 2nd semester. It helps the AP test coordinator with ordering the tests. The "WHERE" clause should be easily modifiable to suit your environment. Assumes:
    • That all AP course names start with "AP...."
    • That the semester 2 termid ends in "02"
  • Course Roster - Provides a roster of students, course number and term, based on user supplied Course Number. It should work "as is".

  • Attendance Reconciliation from PSUG SE 2016 - Putting all Together - Lists students and their daily attendance with time in/time out compared to meeting attendance for a user-selected date.
  • Student Email Missing - Lists students from the grade levels specified by the user who do not have an email entered in the stock student email field.
  • Student Request Tally - A near clone of the built-in "Student Request Tally" found in PowerScheduler, but with filters and the ability to make the filtered results the current student selection. For example, filter to students with 0 requests and make them the current selection.
  • Master Schedule with Grade Counts - Reports master schedule data for the current term(s), with class size, but also broken down by grade level. Useful for finding teachers who have just seniors, or juniors, etc. If you set a grade level to "No", it will NOT include any sections that have any students in that grade level.
    • For example, to find sections with ONLY seniors, set 9th, 10th and 11th to "No" and Seniors to "Yes".
