02/25/2016 - PowerSchool upgrade to 9.2 and migration to Rackspace

Most of you are probably already aware that PowerSchool is upgrading to version 9.2 and concurrently migrating to Rackspace scheduled for March 11-13. It is always best practice to have all data up to date before an upgrade and especially before a data migration. In preparation for the upcoming April headcount, NCDPI recommends that you have all of your PowerSchool data up to date prior to the PowerSchool upgrade/migration by ensuring all students are entered and the EC Data screen 'Yes' flag is checked, as appropriate.
