2015 Conference – Zagreb, Croatia!

We are proud to announce that the fourth annual European PowerSchool Users’ Group Conference will take place

September 25-27, 2015 at The American International School of Zagreb, Croatia

This event will be an excellent opportunity to increase your PowerSchool knowledge, share resources, get your questions answered, and network with counterparts at schools across Europe, so mark your calendars and save the dates!  While Pearson will likely send a representative or trainers to be present at the conference, this event is initiated and organized entirely by users.

The American International School of Zagreb is a K-12 school that implemented PowerSchool in 2008. The campus is located within an old seminary building near the very centre of Zagreb. Check out the school’s website, or learn about AISZ here.

2014 Conference Summary and Photos

The 2014 Conference took place September 25-27 at The Archbishop’s Seminary in Rabat, Malta. The Archbishop’s Seminary have been strong supporters of the European PSUG since its founding and were excited to serve as the hosts of the 2014 conference.

The event was a great success. 32 people from 19 different schools attended sessions over three days. The primary presenters were Greg Satterwhite, who taught multiple session focusing on scheduling, and Roger Sprik, who focused on topics related to customization, PowerSchool 8, and GPA/Honor Roll. Romy Backus taught sessions on customization, language translation, and how her school has used PowerSchool to transition to paperless reporting. Alex Toader and Sanja Kišiček taught on customization and VisualPST/Object Reports respectively. Attendees were also able to work collaboratively and get questions answered by the experts at an Open Lab session on the last day.

In addition to their learning about PowerSchool, attendees toured Malta on an open-top bus tour of the island, followed by a group dinner in Malta’s capital city, Valletta. On the second night, a BBQ at the school and a walking tour of the nearby old town of Mdina provided further opportunities for networking and socializing.

We thank Daren Scerri, Father Mark Ellul, and the whole team at the Archbishop’s Seminary for being wonderful hosts. We also thank our conference sponsors intellimedia and Pearson for their generous support, and we look forward to the fourth annual conference in fall 2015!
