Teachers head to Florida for PowerSchool training

Training to provide for increased competency for elementary schools in the use of Power-School, the data-based student information sys­tem, is continuing.

Region 1 Business Manager Samuel Herrick told Board of Education members Monday that $25,000 is part of the proposed 2014-15 central office budget for that purpose.

Between half and two/thirds of the funding will be shared between the six elementary schools and the rest divided up to be available for individual support needs.

“The principals feel this is so new that some are sending staff to PowerSchool training using grant money. The schools are at all different lev­els and they hope to be on the same level next year,” he said.

Some staff will be attending the PowerSchool University in Florida next week. Of the $25,000, $10,000 will come from the in-service line in the central office budget.
