It is an annual training event that is offered by PowerSchool Solutions (a consortium between Capital Area IU, Carbon Lehigh IU, & Montgomery County IU) as a local, low cost solution for PowerSchool training.
The event is 4 days long with a wide array of topics for PowerSchool users at all experience levels.
One of the key factors to the success of this training event has been that you are not required to attend all 4 days. Therefore, you only have to attend the days where there is a course offered that you will benefit from.
The other key factor to the success of this event has been the experience and knowledge that the trainers have to offer. Our trainers work as full-time PowerSchool support personnel, which provides them with in-depth understanding of the application, the needs of districts, and state reporting requirements.
This training event was previously called PowerSchool Mini Camp (PSMC), but with the attendance growth in the last couple of years we felt it was time for a more fitting name.
Lunch and a light breakfast is included
Breakfast and Lunch are provided every day
