DASL (Student Information) Update

Preparing for the 2020-2021 school year is here! Are you anxious about how you are going to get all your students scheduled for the next year? NEOnet has a new scheduling service where we will schedule your students for the 20/21 year for $2.00 a student. The goal of the scheduling service is to complete your "Batch" of student schedules that typically occurs this later winter or springtime. The $2.00 amount will be changed times the number of students that are ran through the batch scheduler or for elementary it will be the total number of students we bulk assign to courses. The school building must provide master schedule (paper, excel, other electronic formats), but NEOnet will enter all changes and additions up until the end of the current school year. Any master schedule changes made after the schedule is finalized will still be completed by the district.  NEOnet will also mass add student requests, execute the batch scheduler, clean up errors, and attempt to get a high percentage of your students scheduled. NEOnet will work closely with the guidance department on errors, concerns, of suggestions we might have. The guidance staff will never be locked out of scheduling and can still make any changes or manual schedules they desire.  If you are interested in using the scheduling service contact us soon at studentservices[at]neonet[dot]org
