Vicki A. Davis at Cool Cat Teacher reports on her six-week odyssey moving from a manual system to an automated one: the PowerSchool system.
It was a long six weeks. But, says Ms. Davis:
Moving from manual systems to PowerSchool has gone relatively smoothly largely because of the amazing leadership from administration.
Ms. Davis outlines some detailed lessons she learned along the way, including reflections about ownership, communication, and empathy.
And, the proof is in the pudding.
When the teachers opened up the gradebook and already had rosters with parent names and phone numbers, squeals of delight filled the classroom!
Nothing a little “hard work, ownership, vision, and leadership” can’t accomplish, she says.
