Prepare Students

Confirm that the appropriate students are available in your database for scheduling. Before the system can load students into the master schedule, you must enter detailed scheduling information for each student.

  1. On the start page, choose PowerScheduler under Applications in the main menu. The Scheduling page appears.
  2. Under Resources, choose Students from the PowerScheduler menu. The Scheduling page appears.
  3. Select students for scheduling. For detailed information, see Schedule Search and Select.
  4. Click the name of the student you want to work with from the students menu.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Preferences from the pop-up menu.
    • Click the Preferences tab.
    The Edit Scheduling Preferences page appears.
  6. Use the following table to enter information below the Required Settings header:



    Next Year Grade

    Enter the student's next year grade level.


    Enter a number to indicate the order in which the system should schedule this student during the load process.

    You can assign scheduling priorities to students for the system to follow when loading student schedules. Students can share the same priority.

    For example, if there are more requests than available spots, you might want the system to schedule graduating seniors first because it is their last chance to take the courses they request. If this is the case, assign all twelfth graders a priority of 10, all eleventh graders a priority of 20, all tenth graders a priority of 30, and all ninth graders a priority of 40.

    Note: The lower the number, the higher the priority.

    Schedule This Student

    Select the checkbox to include the student in the scheduling process.

    If you forget to select the checkbox for a student who has made course requests, the system will be unable to schedule that student.

    Not only do you have to select to include the appropriate students, but also you must exclude graduating students by deselecting the checkbox.

    Year of Graduation

    Enter the student's year of graduation.

    Note: You do not have to enter a year of graduation for students who are graduating this year.

    Next School Indicator

    Choose the school the student will attend next year from the pop-up menu.

    Choose Graduated School for students who are graduating this year.

  7. Click Submit.
