If school categories have been defined, use the pop-up menu to identify the type of school, such as High School (HS), Middle School (MS), or Elementary School (ES).

To define school categories, the School Category code set must be populated with the appropriate codes for your state or province.

Next school: The system only displays courses from the next school for students whom you have indicated a next school.

Set Schools Sort Order

Using the Sort Order function, you can set the order in which schools appear on PowerSchool SIS's school lists and menus. The lower the sort order number, the higher the school appears. You can use 0 or negative numbers, such as -1, to precede other entries. If two items have the same sort order number, the first one created precedes the other.

  2. Enter a number in the respective Sort Order fields.
