PARCCtastic ***Now with DLM***

Posted Sometime in November
Version 4.0 of the PARCCtastic plugin for Illinois is now available!
Just note you need to have the October 27th state reporting update installed before updating to PARCCtastic version 4.
The state reporting update added two new fields for DLM-AA which have been incorporated.

Kicking the dust off Big Reg

Posted Sometime in July
15 years ago, back in PowerSchool 4, I made a custom page for collection student info during registration.
I thought is was the bees knees an posted it to this site. And for many many years I dutifully updated the page to coincide with PowerSchool's evolution.
But for the last few years I did not touch the thing. I mean in the age of so many epic customizations, what does one need with a simple student page.
Then this week six people emailed asking why the registration "plugin" wont install. I wanted to put on my old man voice and say "Back in my day we didn't have a plugin system. We FTP'ed files to the web_root folder, and we liked it!"
Instead I went ahead and overhauled the page, made it so you can enable/edit the "enrollment notes" in the PS user interface, and yes... made it a plugin.
The Big Reg page lives on, albeit with legacy custom fields.
Perhaps the oldest PS customization on the internet (I say this with zero proof).
