this is a dumb question.

  1. 0 hi. i am new to school nursing (had my first day on friday). and i have to submit a report on immunizations to the state by 10/31. part of the report wants me to know how many students exactly are in each grade k-12. how do i know how many kids are in each grade? is there a specific place where this number could be found or office within a school that would typically have this information? i know this is a dumb question but i figure i'd ask it here first if anyone could help me out. i apologize in advance because i realize there must be a lot of eye rolling going on right now. ok thanks.

    Request a report from your principal in each building, along with a current class list of each grade. There is probably a database (Powerschool, Teacherease, etc) that you can access with the proper authorization from your administration.

    Not a dumb question, BTW

    Never a dumb question. I'd ask a secretary for a class-by-class listing. Chances are you'll want that for lots of different reasons. Jolie makes a good point--we use PowerSchool and I have access and use it daily for immunizations, checking a student's schedule and attendance, finding a student, checking medical alerts, etc.

    Your registrar or an administrator should be able to get that for you. Fortunately, we use SNAP and can pull most of the info ourselves. And, its not a dumb question.
