While we have been promised the next version of Powerschool will fix the issue (when have you heard that before?) Mike Dickinison has some words of wisdom…

Yes – I’m talking about the ‘apostrophes’, “quotes” and -hyphens- being changed into ?question marks? as you paste your reports from MS Word into your Gradebook.

PS – Just reverse this if you want to have MS Word autoformat for you
again after your reports are written
