If you are not a classroom teacher you will be using PowerSchool for this task. Log into PowerSchool and open a student schedule by clicking on the backpack icon and a student name. Here you can view the student's schedule, emergency contacts and attendance records by chosing a report from the Select Screens drop down menu. Post on Edmodo how you could use these reports in your position.

Create a student group in PowerTeacher. If you look under the class list, you will find student groups. This could be used to target a specific group of students (GBE).
