Software Licenses:

Group purchases for software licenses are uniquely negotiated for the ESU 10 PowerSchool support service. This may require support staff to be the primary providers of the training and/or support. Software licenses are available without being part of the ESU 10 support consortium, however support options or customizations may be limited.

Custom Alerts Plugin by Marcia Brenner Associates (MBA)

Create district-wide or school-defined custom alerts for students

    • 1st year = $150 plus $.43 per student
    • Ongoing annual support = $.13 per student

Non-consortium members will receive initial Plugin setup and training for Custom Alerts, but ongoing support from ESU 10 and direct access to MBA support is not included with this license agreement.

E-collect Adaptive Data Management System by AccelaSchool

Flexible data collection platform that helps you get more out of your SIS. Ecollect Enterprise includes Enrollment, Essentials, Student Support and Teacher modules. (PDF & Webinar recording)

    • One-time cost = estimated $450 per district

Non-consortium members will receive initial installation and unlimited support from AccelaSchool and implementation will be performed for all participating districts, not individually. AccelaSchool and/or ESU 10 will provide training opportunities for all participating districts but non-consortium members will be responsible for all custom and flex form development.
