About vHub Validation
The vHub Validation system allows you to validate data before submitting it for Vermont SLDS reporting. This tool dramatically increases the efficiency of the submissions process by pulling multiple related records from PowerSchool onto a single page to streamline the review process, identifying errors, and providing insight on how to correct them.
The Admin section also helps you maintain error-free data throughout the year. It includes the option for automatic nightly submissions to check accuracy and easy download of files for review. You can also control user access and upload files directly to vHub support for additional assistance.
With the vHub Validation system, your registrar will be able to maintain high quality records that are ready for SLDS reporting.
