Staff and teachers attended a Train the Trainer workshop learning how to use Power Grade.  Power School was adopted early last spring as Cottonwood School District's new Administrative program.  Power School has a grade book, student management piece, attendance, lunch program, and report module in one program.  Albertson Foundation awarded Cottonwood School District $40,000 to move to a new program after ISIMS failed to meet the requirements needed to produce the results the state was looking for.  During the teacher inservice day on the 26th of August, the trainers will inservice the rest of the staff on how to use the gradebook and attendance modules. Staff attending the training:  Greg Deiss, Duane Uhlenkott, Amy Sigler, Judy Forsman, Lynn Rehder, Darby Lamb, Alica Holthaus, Becky Higgins, Urban Wassmuth, Ryan Hasselstrom, Tandy Savage
