Oct. 31 Schoolnet Updates

Good afternoon,

This message is a status update for the Schoolnet maintenance performed last night, October 30, from 10:00 PM to 12:00 AM.

The Pearson technical team successfully deployed the planned database enhancements in support of the effort to improve and optimize Schoolnet's overall performance.

However, the team did not apply, as planned, the two fixes to correct the errors intermittently occurring as it relates to Scheduling Tests and to correct the error 404 messages when trying to log in to Schoolnet from PowerSchool. There were issues discovered during testing that would have caused additional performance issues. In order to maintain the improvements to performance we have accomplished over the last week, Pearson did not apply the fixes to production. The team will continue to test these fixes, and we will notify you once they are ready for deployment and indicate when that maintenance window will be.

The web parts for students and teachers remain temporarily disabled and will be restored as soon as possible.

Thank you again for your continued patience, and the NCDPI will share more information once it is available. Sincerely,

Cynthia Crowdus, M.A., PMP
