Pre-enrolled students, what “next grade” to set

The general rule is (starting grade level +1, -1 if EOY process has not been run).

For example:

1 – Student (Grade 3) comes in during the year and pre-registers a week in advance. Add 1 for the next year grade (Grade 4) so that the student moves up to the correct grade level for the following year.

2 – Student (completed Grade 3) is pre-registered in the summer for the following year. The student will be in 4th grade next year. ***If the EOY process has not been done (no one has moved up in grade levels), the student’s next year grade will be Grade 4. When the EOY process is done, the student will be enrolled in Grade 4 with a next year grade changed to Grade 5. ***If the EOY process has been done, then follow the rule in #1.



Entering in Grades for Standards

There are 2 ways of entering standards grades into PowerSchool.

The preferred way is through the Gradebook.

Standards for K and 1 are no longer associated with the K and 1 courses. Instead, we have separated the standards out by the course.

Click on the course and click on the Final Grades button.




You will now see your list of standards. You have either type the score, type it in or use the drop-down to choose the grade and fill it down through the students, if you wish.






Continue this for all scores and save the changes.








The other method (less recommended) is by going through PowerTeacher.

Click on the Backpack in the row of the course to enter scores.



Click on a student’s name and from the drop down menu, choose Final Grades Entry (Standards).






Enter the grades and SUBMIT the grades.
