    Hello, Everyone.


    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

    Setting up email on mobile devices tends to differ among manufactures. The following information can be used in conjunction with the user guide from your mobile device manufacturer to configure your email account on your mobile device.
     
     
    User Name: This field should contain your full email address 
     
    Password: This field should contain your email account password
     
    Server: This field should contain the following server address for most mobile devices:

  • Email Migration Information for Outlook users on a PC

    Posted by Gil Gonzalez at 12/18/2011
    If you are an Outlook user on a PC, you may notice one of two things after opening the application after your account has been migrated:
     
    1) You may notice a box that requests your permission to redirect to a new server for updated configuration settings.
     
    or
     
    2) You may simply be asked to restart the Outlook application.
     
    In either case, you should select OK or Allow and Outlook will automatically configure itself with the new settings. Your new email messages will begin to appear in Outlook once the automatic configuration has been completed and the initial connection to the sever has been established. Please be patient during this process, as it may take a few minutes to complete. You will know that Outlook is successfully connected to the exchange email server when the connection status in the bottom right corner says "Connected to Exchange".

  • Email Migration Information for Outlook users on a Mac

    Posted by Gil Gonzalez at 12/18/2011
    If you are an Outlook user using a Mac, you can use the following steps to prepare Outlook to automatically configure itself with the new email server settings after your account has been migrated:
     
     
    NOTE: If you have created new folders to sort email in Outlook for Mac, you will need to export your mail to a file and import that file back into Outlook once the new account settings have been configured. Otherwise, you not see the new folders that you have created once Outlook is configured. More information regarding importing and exporting in Outlook can be found by selecting the Help menu and searching for Export or Import. You can also find help online by visiting the Microsoft Office Support Page.
     
     
     
     
    Step 1: 
     
    Select the Tools menu and then select Accounts 
     
    Step 1  
     
    Step 2:
     
    In the accounts menu, select the existing email account and select the Minus button in the lower left hand corner to delete the account 
     
    Step 2  
     
    Step3:
     
    Once the account has been deleted, select the Plus button and then select Exchange. 
     
    Step 3  
     
    Step 4:
     
    In the Exchange account window, enter your email account information. Remember, your user name is your entire email address.
     
    Step 4  
     
    Step 5:
     
    Click on "Add Account" after you have verified that all of your account information has been entered correctly as it is in the picture above. Once you see the new account listed in the menu on the left hand side of the accounts menu, you can close the window and wait for Outlook to connect to the server and retrieve your email. Please be patient during this process, as it may take a few minutes to complete. You will know that Outlook is successfully connected to the exchange email server when the connection status in the bottom right corner says "Connected to Woodstown".

    Posted by Gil Gonzalez at 12/16/2011
    You can begin configuring the Outlook application on your computer with the new settings once you are able to log into the new Outlook Web Access via the link on our district web site. You will know that you are viewing the new Outlook Web Access page if the interface has a yellow theme instead of the old blue theme. Once you have confirmed that you can access the updated Outlook Web Access, you can follow the configuration directions that will be posted on Sunday, December 18th.

  • Email Services Upgrade - Weekend of 12/17/11

    Posted by Gil Gonzalez at 12/15/2011

    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.
