Creating Email Groups for Classes

Need a clean and easy way to email students by groups.  For example, emailing your math 7 students?   Google Contacts may be the solution for you.  This video explains how to pull students out of PowerSchool and import them into Google Contacts





Creating A Master Class with Sections

Currently, PowerSchool Learning creates a separate class for every section you teach.  This is true if, for example, even if you teach five sections of Math 9.   Instead of five separate sections, you have five separate classes. Each with their own content.

Very annoying.

We plan to have this fixed next time, but for now, this video will show you how to create a master class and then add sections to that class.

Be sure to make the classes you don’t need inactive so your students will know where to go.
