Students enroll in PowerSchool through their school or school district. PowerSchool has an Enroll New Student feature for the easy addition of new students, and it also has features for retaining currently enrolled students. Students who enroll in PowerSchool receive a user name and password to access the system.
Those enrolling a new student into PowerSchool first click the Special Functions link, and then click on Enroll New Student. PowerSchool then presents a form that the individual fills out with student information, such as first and last name, enrollment date, grade level and entry code. After the individual submits the form, PowerSchool checks for duplicates, and if it finds none then it enrolls the student. If there is a correspondence between the new student's information and that of another enrolled student (such as last name or phone number), PowerSchool gives the possible duplicate to the individual completing the form to review.
A new student who already is in the system and is in a transfer school can have the account deactivated by the Transfer To Another School button. The individual in charge of the account can re-enroll a transfer student back into the school by clicking on the Re-Enroll function and completing the required form.
