Join us at our 8th annual PSUG-Southeast user conference at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel.

A PowerSchool User Conference put on BY PowerSchool users from districts all over the Southeast is what you will be a part of when you attend the 2020 PSUG-Southeast Conference.  Attend sessions put on by fellow PowerSchool users that will give you a real world view on how others are using PowerSchool in their districts. Please note: While Pearson supports our events and will be in attendance at our conference, this is NOT a Pearson event. These conferences are put on "BY" PowerSchool users "FOR" PowerSchool users.
