Focus Center Concurrent Students PowerSchool Tracking Proposal
To accommodate state reporting requirements for classes attended outside a student's home school and to better track student achievement several PowerSchool screens have been modified. The changes will provide:
When a school administrator determines a Focus Center Referral is the appropriate educational choice for a student the school counselor drops the students current classes and enrolls them in Focus Center Classes that will provide a graduation path for the student. The process of entering students in class at the Focus Center is the same as entering students in classes at any other school. The process was explained at counselors meeting and there is a guide on the PS Train Site. After the Focus Center classes are added the referral form can be printed, credit goals entered and signatures added. Images of the PowerSchool Screens are included below.
After selecting the student choose functions from the student menu on the left. Then select Enroll In A Class at another School from the functions list.
Print the Focus Center Referral form and follow current policy to complete the process. As soon as the student has been added into a Focus Center class their PowerSchool information will be available to the Focus Center staff using the Students From Other Schools function from Other Options on the PowerSchool Home Page. The classes at the Focus Center became the link that joins the home school with the Focus Center allowing both schools to access the student and monitor their progress.
