American Community School
30 attendees from 12 schools across 8 countries in the Middle East and Africa gathered on March 8-10, 2019 in Beirut, Lebanon for the fourth annual PowerSchool Users’ Group Middle East Conference. Three days of sessions were offered by our expert presenters in the areas of scheduling, customization, general system administration, and much more for all levels from beginner to advanced. Attendees also had the opportunity to work with trainers one-on-one during Open Lab time to get their questions and problems answered as necessary. On Saturday evening, the group enjoyed a walking tour of historical Downtown Beirut and a delicious Arabic dinner on Zaitunay Bay.

Hello PowerSchool Users and Schools,
I’m pleased to announce that with the generous support of intellimedia, registration for the upcoming PowerSchool Users Group (PSUG) Middle East/Africa Conference is open!
Early-bird registration fee is USD 590 until January 18th, USD 670 thereafter until the February 18th deadline. See the following links for more information about the host school, accommodation, presenters, and general schedule.
This three-day event on International College’s 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: Roger Sprik, a well-known contributor, customizer, and trainer in the PowerSchool world, scheduling guru Greg Satterwhite, who has more than 10 years of experience working with PowerSchool in international schools, and Romy Backus, PowerSchool system administration expert and Student Information System Specialist at the American School of Dubai. A fourth trainer will be added soon, and we are hopeful that Jason Springel (PowerSchool Evangelist) will be able to attend again this year as well.
All PowerSchool users and schools are welcome, from both the Middle East and further afield.
For insight into the types and content of sessions offered in the past at this event, please reference the 2018 Session Catalog. A detailed session schedule and sign-up for the 2019 event will be sent in February closer to the conference dates. 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 register early and be as descriptive as possible on the registration form with what you hope to learn, and every effort will be made to accommodate those needs in this year’s sessions and curriculum.
Please let us know if you have any questions at all. We hope many of you can attend and look forward seeing you in March!
