The deadline for application to the Governor’s Teacher Network (GTN) has been extended to April 30. The GTN will provide a statewide platform for teachers to share their best work around instruction and professional development. Through the GTN, approximately 450 teachers from across North Carolina will be selected to serve for one year as instructional and professional development experts and facilitators, potentially earning $10,000.00 each in stipends.

As part of the PowerSchool 7.11 update that will take place this weekend, a new method for launching the Gradebook will be included. Please DO NOT use the new launch method for the Gradebook at this time.
On the PowerTeacher portal navigation menu, you will notice the New Gradebook Launch method. Previously, it was stated that users would have the ability to turn off this new PowerTeacher 2.8 feature. However, we have later learned that this option CANNOT be turned off. Therefore, if you launch the Gradebook, please DO NOT click the “Launch” button that appears on the screen as this requires the setup and use of the new launch method. Users should use the old “Launch” button in its place as identified by the red circle in the illustration below.
