Local Verification of Course Codes in PowerSchool


Teaching Context - Practice Schedule Validation - September 18-30

  • The purpose of the practice schedule validation is to ensure that teacher schedule information is correct in the ASW platform. If teachers find incorrect scheduling information, they will need to inform their school or district PowerSchool person to correct the schedule information in PowerSchool.
  • The deadline to make schedule changes in PowerSchool is 5:00 p.m. on September 30.

  • Teachers should only complete the first step – they should not attempt to continue forward in the process.
