The PowerSchool update has been completed and tested. You will now notice new instructions on the PowerTeacher Grade Book download page. Please be sure to read them before downloading the PowerTeach Grade Book. With this update, you no longer have to download the Java file each time that you want to run the Grade Book application. When you download the Grade Book application, you can copy it to the applications folder on your computer and run it from there each time.
For users running Mac OS X 10.7.5 or newer, you will need to enable the Gatekeeper function in Mac OS X to allow applications from anywhere to run before downloading the Grade Book Application from PowerTeacher. Detailed instructions can be found at the following support page from Apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5290
If you are not sure which version of Mac OS X is running on your computer, please see the following Apple support page: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1633

Internet connectivity will be temporarily disrupted this afternoon (5/7/12) at approximately 4:00pm as a result of upgrading the District's connection to the internet. The internet connection will be transferred to a new service provider and the available bandwidth will be doubled from 50 megabits per second to 100 megabits per second. During the upgrade process, internet connectivity may be intermittent as equipment is programmed and restarted. Once the upgrade has been completed, internet connectivity will be restored to normal functionality.
Over the weekend of December 17th, work will be done to our email services that will migrate your email accounts to an upgraded email system. You may notice a disruption in connectivity when using Outlook during this time. You will not lose any messages that are stored on the email server during this process. I would suggest using the email link that is located on the front page of our website to access your email through the Outlook Web interface over the weekend. You may also notice that this web interface has been upgraded once your account has been migrated to the new system . The basic functionality is the same however, you will notice that many more features are available to you. The migration of your accounts should be completed by Monday.
Further details regarding what you will need to do to continue receiving email through Microsoft Outlook will be posted on this blog over the weekend, so be sure to check back for an update. Please remember that Outlook Web Access will be available via the link on our home page once your account has been successfully migrated regardless of whether or not your email is coming in through the Outlook application on your computer.
