Rancho Cordova, CA (PRWEB) January 28, 2009
Pearson today announced that it has expanded its state reporting capabilities for PowerSchool Premier -- its industry-leading, web-based student information system (SIS) -- in Arizona. PowerSchool Premier accurately generates reports and extracts necessary data for compliance with state and federal data collection requirements. These updates create a more robust state reporting offering designed to specifically address the unique needs of Arizona schools and districts and furthers Pearson's long-standing commitment in the region.
"Pearson has a rich history of innovation and collaboration in Arizona," said Paul Fletcher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the School Systems group of Pearson. "With the availability of these state reporting updates for PowerSchool Premier, we've optimized PowerSchool Premier to directly address the unique state reporting needs of Arizona's Joint Technological Education Districts."
Arizona state reporting updates:
In Arizona, Joint Technological Education Districts (JTEDs), act as "cooperatives" for public school districts to cost effectively deliver specialized vocational, and career and technical education course offerings for students to attain sufficient skills to enter into occupations that normally do not require a baccalaureate or advanced degree. Pearson has added JTED functionality to PowerSchool Premier so Arizona schools can use the system to report on JTED students. These updates include:
- JTED Student Information Reports - the report exports JTED related information for students, courses, and teachers for submission to the JTED.
- JTED Attendance Reports - this report allows users to collect and report JTED Student absence information for the state.
- JTED Attendance Audit Paper Reports - this is an HTML paper report that users can provide to the JTED district for audit purposes.
- SAIS Attendance - Attendance for a reported JTED class is now excluded from SAIS reporting.
