Daily Bulletin-Monday, March 20 2023 DAY A


The PowerSchool App is not working well and will not likely improve in the near future. The web portal (www.siscbvrce.ednet.ns.ca/public) requires the same username and password as the app, but is a better user experience. Everything parents/guardians want to see is there.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
