This three-day event on our beautiful campus will be an excellent opportunity to increase your PowerSchool knowledge, share resources, get questions answered, and network with counterparts at other schools. We will have a variety of excellent sessions at different levels from experts:

  • Adam Larsen, a well-known contributor, customizer, and trainer in the PowerSchool world
  • Greg Satterwhite, scheduling guru, who has more than 10 years of experience working with PowerSchool in international schools
  • Jason Springel, PowerSchool Evangelist and author of the popular Insider screencasts
  • Alicia Ohnstad, implementation and support specialist
  • John Dunleavy, data specialist, longtime and well-known member of the PowerSchool community
  • Romy Backus, founder of European PSUG and PowerSchool Specialist at the American School of Dubai
  • Chris Walberg – intellimediaCanada-based PowerSchool customization, support, and plugin specialist company
  • Joy Vallosio – Marcia Brenner Associates, Wisconsin, PowerSchool support and customization company
  • Kaelon EganAccelaSchool, vendor of powerful Ecollect plugin

Please note, however, that this conference is a regional event and intended to enhance rather than replace formal training at PowerSchool’s official PowerSchool University conference, which has a much broader scope of courses and offerings.

A detailed session schedule and sign-up will be released in mid-February. Since this is a relatively small event, session offerings will be tailored to the needs and roles of the attendees. If you are planning to attend, please be as descriptive as possible on the registration form with what you hope to learn, and every effort will be made to accommodate that.


For questions, please contact Romy by emailing rbackus ‘at’ asdubai.org
