Student Learning Preferences

Enter Student Learning Preferences

This page is available to capture information for local use regarding student learning preferences (instructional models) as requested by the student’s parents/guardians.

Use the District Information page to define the Learning Preferences codes that appear in the drop-down list on the student Learning Preferences page. Your district has provided pre-populated codes, which may be customized with the exception of the two-digit code value, which may not be modified. Your district may also add additional Learning Preferences codes if needed. It is recommended that customizations be done prior to entering or importing student-level records.

Student records can be manually entered individually or mass imported into the S_STU_LEARNINGPREF_C child table using the Data Import Manager.

For more information, see Learning Preferences in the Powerschool SIS online help.
