DASL (Student Information) Update

The DASL team is already seeing a trend where school districts are changing their 20/21 Calendar Start Date and other dates throughout the year to accommodate a later start to the school year. This is just a reminder that those changes should be completed through the Calendar Dates Wizard page. In addition, your sub-calendars, EMIS Exceptions, and Course Section Assignment Dates should be reviewed as well when making changes. The team can make any changes for you if you submit the request to studenthelp[at]neonet[dot]org

Additionally, we know many schools are announcing their return to school plans. These plans may cause you to re-evaluate scheduling students, tracking attendance on students, coding students, health tracking on students and more. The team is actively engaging in statewide ITC and ODE meetings so we can present ideas on how to use the software efficiently. Be on the lookout for tips, tricks and innovative ways we will be sharing to help you ease into probably the wildest back to school we have ever experienced!

Lastly, at the end of business day on July 17, 2020, DASL will be defaulted to 20/21 school year. Upon logging into DASL you will now be placed in that school year, Ad Hoc Reports will default to that school year, and any Third Party extracts will be pulling the 20/21 data.

EMIS Update:

FY21 Collections open in July

FY21 Initial Calendar- July 2,202 – September 30, 2020 – Reminder to update exceptions for FY21.

FY21 Student Cross Reference – July 5, 202 – July 14, 2021


Many FY20 collections will be closing early August.


Grad Cohort Level 2 Reports and Grad Issue reports now available with the FY20G Graduation Collection scheduled to be open until October 16, 2020

Reminder: Diploma Date Element Clarification

To count in the FY20 graduation rate, a student’s Diploma Date must be prior to the earliest first day of school being reported on a district’s FY21 calendars. Given the ordered school building closure this spring, many districts are planning delayed ceremonies that will ultimately take place after the earliest first day of school for the coming school year.

The Diploma Date reported should be the date that students completed graduation requirements and finished formal secondary education. In the vast majority of cases, that will be the last day of school for seniors in a given district.

The OH|ID portal is under construction this summer – but you can get a sneak peek of the changes now! OH|ID is the portal you use to access applications such as Educator Licensure and Records (CORE), the Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS) and the Learning Management System.

Fall Initialization

At the end of business day on July 17, 2020, DASL will be defaulted to 20/21 school year.  Starting Monday, July 20th, we will start running the Fall Initialization program in verify mode in DASL for each district. This will create a report that will be sent to you for verification.   If you haven’t returned your summer questionnaire, please return as soon as possible so we will be able to run the update process. 

EMIS Trainings

The NEOnet EMIS Support Team will be scheduling trainings for the 20-21 school year.   Trainings that do not need to be “hands on” will be virtual until further notice.


Gradebook https://forms.gle/fS1GzwsmFJHhjS116

It is that time of year to start thinking about reserving a spot to work with NEOnet on getting your Gradebook setup for the 20/21 school year. Gradebook setup trainings help you with report card setup, grading scales, ParentAccess setup and more items to ensure your teachers Gradebook experience runs smooth for the entire school year. During these unprecedented times we are trying to keep everyone safe but also ensure you get the support you deserve. Currently we are asking districts to fill out this survey on how they would prefer to work with NEOnet on the Gradebook setup process for 20/21. Thank you in advance for your time: https://forms.gle/fS1GzwsmFJHhjS116

We now have all the districts in the NEOnet consortium migrated to the Refresh.  The Classic icon has been turned off.  Just a reminder that the Special Services software no longer shuts down.  It is currently sitting in the 2019-2020 school year.   Special Services will roll-up to the 2020-2021 school on Friday, July 17th at the end of the business day.

We will hold Beginning of the Year Admin Training as follows:

The Agenda will include Account Setup, Security Roles, Case Management Classes, and New Navigation.  Links to the webinar out later.
