IMPORTANT Reminders

  • Although HQT values are no longer reported to EMIS, the Civil Rights Report does use HQT values for certain areas.
  • The Ohio Department of Education has revised statewide Reset and Restart Education information in accordance with recent guidance provided by the U.S. Department of Education. All students identified as English learners—whether identified by the standard or presumptive procedure—should be coded appropriately using the state Education Management Information System (EMIS). This will ensure continuity of funding and eligibility for other English-learner-specific provisions. Presumptively-identified students should be coded in EMIS before December 21, 2020. Click here for new procedural guidance for schools and districts to code presumptively-identified English learner students in EMIS. The complete document can be found here. 
  • Core Summary  Core Summary records for non-graduates in grades 9-11 are to be reported in FY21. A new version of the Current Graduation Credit Progress Collection has been released in the data collector for non-graduates. For ProgressBook users, we are waiting for the new release in order to run this collection. Please hold off until the 20.3 release is available later this month. The current Verify/Update -Core Summary program returns zero results. We will go over this change in the upcoming checklist training.. 
  • COVID-Driven Data Collection: New S collections will use existing EMIS elements and records types as part of either the DN record or through new program codes.  Data regarding student learning modes and student access to hardware and internet will be collected.  We will release more information and program codes very soon.  Virtual sessions will be offered once the new data is available in SIS.
  • Extended fall end-of-course exam window - The fall end-of-course exam window originally was scheduled to be open between Nov. 30, 2020, and Jan. 8, 2021. That window has been extended one additional week to provide more time for testing in January and now runs from Nov. 30, 2020, to Jan. 15, 2021. Districts must administer the exams within 15 consecutive school days, including makeups. Math, English language arts and biology exams are administered to meet federal law. Administration of exams in American History and American Government is required by state law. At this point, state law still includes end-of-course exams for graduation requirements.

OAEP Fall Conference was held on December 4th.   For those that were unable to attend, we have created a folder with the handouts from each of the sessions.   To view:  https://portal.neonet.org/document-categories/fy21-oaep-fall-conference-documents

DASL (Student Information) & Gradebook Update

When districts choose to vault Report Cards (aka publish to ParentAccess) the cards are attached to the student’s state student ID (SSID). If a student attends multiple districts (Career center/JVS,etc.) or moves to another school district, the report card stays with the student as long as the district is on the ProgressBook suite. Below are some tips on this feature for DASL, Gradebook, and ParentAccess. Please let us know if you have any questions on this feature at studenthelp[at]neonet[dot]org

 

In DASL

  • When naming your report cards on the Load Settings tab before more descriptive. Include your building name or at least abbreviation (NHS). The name will go over to Gradebook and ParentAccess and will help teachers and parents easily find the correct report card
  • When setting up Load Settings do not include student status for students not attending your building. If the report card is set up a certain way and include those status’ a blank report card will appear which adds to more clutter for teachers and parents.

 

In GradeBook

On the Class Dashboard when clicking on a student name, the Student Profile Screen, you can see report cards from two districts.

In Parent Access and on the Report Card tab: the grid displays the district's report card data in witch the parent account is logged onto, the View Paper Report Card is the last district who saved their card to the vault, and the View Paper History is where to see all the available cards.
