The Bell Schedule Setup page has been updated to reflect if an invalid period is defined. As part of this change HTML popups that are created server side will indicate “Currently saved value not found in dropdown options. (xxxxx)” if the value currently defined on the record is not present in the dropdown as this represents potentially bad data.

Data Access Tag (DAT)

Student Email, Global ID, and Race Codes (comma separated) values are now accessible using the following Data Access Tags (DAT). Learn more in episode 125 of the PowerSchool Insider.

A schema update failure for PSF-69026 occurs on startup. This error does not impact PowerSchool SIS functionality and will be addressed in a future release.

PowerSchool Components

PowerSchool SIS comprises several software components, each versioned independently. This allows for greater flexibility of component updates as new features and bug fixes become available. Some updates may include dependencies between components. These dependencies will be communicated and built into the component update installers to prevent PowerSchool SIS from being misconfigured. The following table identifies the version number for each PowerSchool SIS component in this release compared to the previous release:
