DASL (Student Information) Update
Scheduling

With scheduling for the 2017/2018 school year in full force we wanted to remind schools that are using the public course request module to make sure you run the uncommitted requests report. To do this go to the breadcrumb trail of Management > School Administration > Public Administration > Uncommitted Requests. Choose Uncommitted by Student at the bottom of the screen and this report will give you a list of all students whose requests don’t have an Approved status.

If you are not using the public course request module you will want to run the NORQ report. This report will give you a list of students that have NO course requests. The NORQ report can be found at SIS > Scheduling > Scheduling Reports > No Requests/Assignments (NORQ). Be sure to pick No Requests as your run type.

Ad Hoc Report Listing

Many of you who have attended the Ad Hoc Report training requested a listing of the available reports. We have put a link on the DASL homepage that will take you to a document of the new Ad Hoc Report Listing.  Please continue to reference this link as it will be updated with new reports that become available.

 

EMIS Update:
Where Kids Count Level 2 Report/ MOA
The Where Kids Count (WKC) Level 2 Report is now available through the Data Collector under the currently open Student Collection. Districts are encouraged to start reviewing the reports for accuracy once they have updated and submitted the Majority of Attendance (MOA) data.

Instructions for Majority of Attendance Reporting for DASL users can be found with the DASL Procedural Checklists: FY17 Period S EMIS Checklist for Traditional Districts, JVSDs & ESCs - Second Window
or for Community Schools under FY17 Period S EMIS Checklist for Community & STEM Districts - Final Window

For more information on reporting the MOA IRN, see EMIS Manual Section 2.6: Student Attributes – No Date (FD) Record. An updated WKC report explanation has been posted and can be found here

EMIS Alliance Excel Training

NEOnet will be hosting the final EMIS Alliance Excel workshop for FY17 on April 17th to demonstrate how to utilize Excel with the EMIS reports from ODE.   This is a great opportunity for you to evaluate your reports using Excel which would be helpful with your SIS reporting.    In this session, we will revisit the use of Excel to Troubleshoot Where Kids Count Report and build on our initial basic Excel session with More Excel Training for EMIS Reporting.  For this session, you will need to bring your own laptop.

Special Services Update

Reports

Special Services has many reports that can be run though out the school year.  Now is the time to start running the Open Task or Open Task by Owner.  These reports will assist in finding tasks that have been left open from the beginning of the school year.  We recommend all tasks with the exception of progress reports be completed by the end of June.  The ODE is looking at making changes to some of the forms, so it is important that tasks are completed in a timely fashion to preserve the current data.

Core Report - Open Task Report

Displays existing open tasks for one or more task types for students in individual or multiple school(s). The report will display grouped by student. The Open Tasks Report can display the following information for each open task: Student’s Full Name, Student’s District ID, Task Name, Task Start Date, Compliance Due Date, School Name, Task Type, Grade Level Code and Grade Level Description.

Add-On Reports - Open Task by Owner

Displays existing open tasks for one or more task types for students in individual or multiple school(s). The report will display grouped by student. The Open Tasks Report can display the following information for each open task: Student’s Full Name, Student’s District ID, Task Name, Task Start Date, Compliance Due Date, School Name, Task Type, Grade Level Code and Grade Level Description.
