NCDPI is tweaking the PowerSchool software.
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Thursday state education leaders are solving a problem 2 Wants To Know exposed Tuesday.
2 Wants To Know told you about the new statewide software system for all public schools called PowerSchool. The $7 million system is operated by a company called Home Base. It's supposed to electronically track students' records. But school districts statewide reported the program was mis-calculating GPAs and printing transcripts with classes missing. That threatened kids applying for college and playing sports.
Here's the update: Department of Public Instruction leaders told us they're tweeking the program's software. They say it should fix both the transcript and incorrect GPA issues.
Of course 2 Wants To Know will check with the schools and let you know if the update really makes a difference.
