DDE/DDA
Limited Capacity filling up

Database Export (DDE) allows read-only access to PowerSchool tables and the records within them. Becoming familiar with the tables and their fields, is highly beneficial in working with your school’s data, from creating export templates, to form letters.   I use DDA every single day. If you do the EDCS report, for example, you can export the data needed to create the uploads. If you need data on historical grades, courses, sections, attendance, etc., DDA can save you time.
