Switched-On Schoolhouse Support

Attention Switched-On Schoolhouse (SOS) Users


If you wish to migrate student course data into your install of the newest (June 2021) version of SOS, you will need to complete your grading of that material before you run the backup and migrate it over. Once the data is in the newest version of SOS, you will not be able to open the courses to perform any grading tasks.


While the multimedia in the lessons has been replaced, all games and flashcards have been removed. This includes games, drills, and flashcards that used to be in the student resources, lessons, and review games. Also, the dictionary and Bible lookup tools on the assignments are no longer available.

Additional notes about the June 2021 discontinued version:

  • • Due to changes with Microsoft and Adobe, limited technical support is only available for this version of SOS. That support is available until June 2022.
  • • We cannot fix content errors and missing curriculum elements.
  • • We cannot fix errors from attempting to use an older version of SOS with this version.
  • • This version is not backwards compatible with any older versions of SOS. It is highly recommended that you do not attempt to run an older version of SOS with this version. Doing so will not work, will cause errors, and is not supported.
  • • Client installs are no longer available; therefore, parents/teachers must log into SOS on the same computer as the student to check progress and complete grading.
  • • Revisions and updates will no longer be provided. If a revisions message appears when a new subject is installed, click cancel.
  • • Students must use the text box to submit essays and projects. The upload option is unavailable.
  • • The ability to create custom subjects has been removed.
  • • If homepage settings/games were on in previous versions you may receive an error message to switch to the classic theme. If you get this error, either go to homepage settings and turn everything off or switch to the classic theme.
